Sadly for highly anticipated racer, Project Cars, the hype over its launch has been dominated by a series of delays. Today the developer, Slightly Mad Studios, has announced yet another that sees the European launch of the title for Xbox One, PC and PS4 pushed back by another 2 weeks. Having been originally slated for November 2014, the title was bumped to March 20 this year. Now, the latest release date is pegged at April 2.
Europe was due to get the game a couple of weeks ahead of North America, so for that market at least, nothing has changed. The official statement details why the latest delay:
"Moving a release date was not an easy decision to make, as we know our fans are eager to get their hands-on on Project CARS. But we know that these extra days will allow us to provide the best game experience that our fans deserve. We assure you the wait will be worth it when the game does arrive early April."
Project Cars is shaping up to be one of the most realistic racing games ever made, and after we got an early play at the 2014 Eurogamer Expo in London, we're eagerly awaiting its release. It has a big task at hand on the Xbox One with the goliath that is Forza already an established brand, but if you're into realistic racing titles, this is one you have to check out. If it ever actually launches, that is.
So, we wait on. Hoping that this is the last time it's going to be delayed.
