Originally due to launch November 18, 2014, Project Cars will now release March 20, 2015 across all platforms with the Wii U date still unspecified.
Updated via Bandai Namco UK’s twitter, the game’s delay is to allow the developers, Slightly Mad Studios, more time to polish the “ground breaking racing experience.”
GameInformer reached out to Bandai and the studio had this to say:
“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. 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.”
They also wanted to avoid the “competitive holiday season dominated by household names.”
