Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco announced today in an official statement that they will be delaying the launch of Project Cars for PS4, Xbox One and PC to March 17th, 2015 in North America and March 20th, 2015 in the UK.
This delay, according to said statement, will position the title away from the heavy holiday competition it would face from household names if released in November. The push back will also give the studio time to further polish the title prior to its new launch date.
Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios, also stated:
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. 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.
