Project Cars delayed again, this time by a few weeks into April

Project Cars, the simulation racer from Slightly Mad Studios, has been delayed into April, publisher Bandai Namco Games announced today.

In North America, the Windows PC version of Project Cars will now launch April 2 on Steam, while the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will be available April 7. In Europe, the game will be released April 2 on all three platforms.

Last September, Bandai Namco announced plans to launch Project Cars Nov. 18, but decided the following month to push the game out of the crowded fall release window into mid-March. The Wii U and SteamOS versions of Project Cars are still scheduled to be release sometime this year, following the initial launch on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

The new delay of two to three weeks resulted from "final adjustments in the game that are required to provide fans with the best gaming experience they can have," said Bandai Namco in a press release today.

"Moving the release date was not an easy decision to make, as we know our fans are eager to get their hands-on on Project Cars," said Ian Bell, studio head at Slightly Mad. "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."
