Project CARS developer Slightly Mad Studios and distributor  Namco Bandai have announced the game will be pushed back to March 2015. To be more precise, Project CARS will now be released on March 17, 2015 in the Americas, March 20 in Europe and Australasia, and March 21 in the UK.


 The delay was attributed to the busy holiday season, filled with other big racing games and other competition, and the studio’s desire to polish the game a bit more.

“Our goal has always been to deliver a landmark title that encompasses the wishes and desires of racing fans from all around the world; something with features and content powered by the community that provide a truly unforgettable and pioneering experience” said Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios. “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. We’re eager for you all to see what we’ve been working on in just a few months.”

Project CARS was originally a 2013 release for previous generation consoles. It was than repurposed as a next-gen title for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC and slated to be released in November 2014.
