Last week brought the unfortunate news that anticipated virtual reality (VR) compatible racing title Project CARS had been delayed from its original November 2014 release back into March 2015. The developer cited that the extra time will give it a chance to polish the title to the standard fans expect. Despite the delay, the developer isn’t hiding the title away until its ready for launch, as Project CARS will be on display at London’s MCM Comic Con this weekend.
The event will run from 24th – 26th October at the Excel Centre in London. The title will be one of a number of videogames on display at the show floor, showcasing its brand on highly technical and detailed simulation racing. Project CARS supports the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) on PC and is expected to receive support for the Project Morpheus HMD on PlayStation 4 whenever that device may launch.
The title will be on display along with the rest of publisher Bandai Namco Games’ line up, which includes Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Tales of Hearts R, Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom, Digimon All Star Rumble, Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, and Tales of Xillia 2.
Developer Slightly Mad Studios now anticipates launching Project CARS on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 17th March 2015 in the US and 20th Match in Europe. The launch version should support the Oculus Rift’s second development kit (DK2). A Wii U version of the title is also due but is yet to be dated. VRFocus will continue to follow Project CARS as it heads towards launch, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
