Just a few weeks ago, the Project CARS release date was delayed from March 2015 to April 2015. Today, Bandai Namco and Slightly Mad Studios have announced that Project CARS is delayed again, and will now arrive in mid-May 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Noting that this delay is “due to the team’s continued dedication to polishing the game,” Studio Head Ian Bell talked about how the development status of Project CARS is at 99.9%, but the last 0.1% has proven to be tricky:
Despite our long heritage and pedigree in making critically-acclaimed racing games, Project CARS is by far the grandest and most intricately detailed of them all. Despite therefore the game being 99.9% complete, the remaining 0.1% attending to small issues and bugs has been tricky to anticipate. We’re absolutely dedicated to delivering a ground-breaking experience and by targeting mid-May fans can be assured that’s what they’ll receive.
Again, we want to thank our fans for their support and patience on this matter. There’s a high expectancy from racing fans around the world that Project CARS is going to be an exciting new contender in the simulation racing space and we firmly believe gamers deserve it to be in its most complete and polished state when they come to play it on day one. And since the gaming community is our primary focus and has always been at the heart of the project during development, we would like to offer some free content to all players as compensation for this short delay and as acknowledgement of how grateful we are. This gift, that we’re sure is going to excite fans, will be available from day one and revealed shortly. Keep an eye on our website for more info.
