Project Cars will be delayed to 2015 for all platforms, not just Wii U


When news that the Wii U version of Project Cars would be delayed behind other platforms hit a few months ago, many people were extremely upset. However, it looks like all platforms are being delayed into 2015, including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game was originally scheduled to release on November 18, in a crowded holiday season.

Part of the reason for the delay seems to be that both Slightly Mad Studios and publisher Bandai Namco have realized that the holiday season is just too jam-packed with releases to release a niche title like Project Cars. Here is Slightly Mad Studios’ statement on the delay:

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” said Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios. “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.

Notice there is still no mention of the Wii U version of the game, so perhaps this delay of the primary platforms will push the Wii U version even farther behind. What do you think of this news? Does this renew your interest in the title?
