Well, here we go again. The ambitious racing simulation from Slightly Mad Studios has been delayed again. Originally slated for a holiday 2014 launch, the game was pushed back to March of this year. Earlier today, it was pushed back even further. But as far as delays go, this one isn’t too bad. Read on for the details.

Right from the start, Project Cars seemed like an incredibly ambitious undertaking. Slightly Mad Studios, a British developer best known for the Need for Speed: Shift series, decided to self publish title, paying for it with a mixture of crowd funding and their own money. The game has been a collaborative effort between the studio and the community that grew around it, along with input from professional race car drivers. Featuring an impressive list of vehicles, tracks and game modes across a number of different motorsports, Project Cars has the potential to rival Forza and Gran Turismo.

Unfortunately, the game has faced multiple delays. Developers pushing back their release dates isn’t exactly big new anymore, as it’s becoming more and more common for studios to give themselves more time to finish up their games. That being said, it’s still a bit disappointing when we have to wait a bit longer for a game we’ve been longing to play. Slightly Mad studio head Ian Bell had the following to say about the delay.

“Moving a release date was not an easy decision to make, as we know our fans are eager to get their hands 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 now scheduled for release on April 2nd for PC, Xbox One and PS4. A Wii U version is also being developed, but no release date has been announced.

His aging heart can’t take the shock.
