“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,” Slightly Mad Studios boss Ian Bell said in a press release. “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.”
Bell continued, “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.”
Slightly Mad plans to offer “some free content” to all players as compensation for the delay.
“This gift, that we’re sure is going to excite fans, will be available from day one and revealed shortly,” Bell said. “Keep an eye on our website for more info.”
