Project Cars, the crowdfunded simulation racing game from Slightly Mad Studios, has been pushed back to March 20th, 2015, the studio announced over the weekend.
The new date, which applies to the game's PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, represents a delay of four months — publisher Bandai Namco had previously set a release date of November 18th. In a press release, Slightly Mad and Bandai Namco said they decided to push back Project Cars to move it out of the crowded fall 2014 release window, and to allow for additional development time.
"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," said Ian Bell, studio head at Slightly Mad.
Project Cars is also in development on SteamOS and Wii U, however they have also been delayed to a later date following the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases.
