Project Cars delayed one more time to mid-May

Slightly Mad Studios' driving game Project Cars won't be making its previously scheduled April release date, the studio and publisher Bandai Namco announced today. Now the game is expected sometime in the middle of May.

"Despite our long heritage and pedigree in making critically-acclaimed racing games, Project Cars is by far the grandest and most intricately detailed of them all," said Ian Bell, head of Slightly Mad Studios, in a release. "Despite therefore the game being 99.9% complete, the remaining 0.1% attending to small issues and bugs has been tricky to anticipate. We're absolutely dedicated to delivering a ground-breaking experience and by targeting mid-May fans can be assured that's what they'll receive."

Bell said that as compensation for the delay, Slightly Mad will give Project Cars players some free content, the details of which will be announced later.

"This gift, that we're sure is going to excite fans, will be available from day one and revealed shortly," Bell said. "Keep an eye on our website for more info."

Project Cars was originally scheduled to be released this past November. But the racing sim was pushed to March 2015 to give it a bit more polish and was later bumped again to April.

Project Cars is coming first to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Versions of the game for SteamOS and Wii U are expected later this year.
