Racing fans around the world were planning to get absolutely swamped by driving games this holiday season, although things will be a little bit easier on our wallets now that Bandai Namco and Slightly Mad Studios have announced its Project Cars is being “re-scheduled” for March 2015.
Bandai Namco sent out quite the honest press release stating “the move positions the title away from the competitive holiday scene dominated by household names.” The rescheduling also gives developer Slightly Mad Studios additional time to extend and polish the game.
“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,” shared head of studio at Slightly Mad Studios Ian Bell. “We’re eager for you all to see what we’ve been working on in just a few months.”
Between Forza Motorsport 2, DriveClub, and The Crew, this seems like the most logical move on Bandai Namco's part. The rescheduling also makes absolute sense considering how many big-name titles will also be releasing on November 18, like Far Cry 4. Grand Theft Auto V, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and LittleBigPlanet 3, to name a few.
