Project Cars, initially slated for launch on November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe, has been delayed to March 17 and 20, Bandai Namco announced.
The delay positions the title away from the competitive holiday scene and gives developer Slightly Mad Studios additional time to polish the upcoming racer.
“Our goal has always been to deliver a landmark title that encompasses the wishes and desires of racing fans from all around the world; something with features and content powered by the community that provide a truly unforgettable and pioneering experience,” Slightly Mad Studios boss Ian Bell said.
“Whilst a tough decision to make, the change in release date allows the game the greatest chance of success and visibility, and the opportunity to polish the game even further to the high standards that both ourselves and our community demand and expect. We’re eager for you all to see what we’ve been working on in just a few months.”
Project Cars will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A Wii U version is also planned for release at a later date.
