Neil writes "Bad news race fans, Project Cars has yet again been delayed!"
I saw that coming especially after the PS4 gameplay. It looked seriously unpolished and had texture pop in. Low res cockpit view. They could use the time. And hopefully they make it look like a proper current gen game on consoles.
Vaporware. Company will go out of business and join THQ. I've been following this on steam early access for seems a decade.
Jesus do some of you people have nothing better to do than sit around and wait for a game to get delayed just to rush out the derp derp vaporware comment.... A game has to be delayed for YEARS and console GENERATIONS to be vaporware, not just a few months...
Deadpoolio, you're right. I don't think it's vaporware just yet but this IS the 3rd or 4th time this game has been delayed. I'd like to think that devs have finally decided to stop releasing unfinished games which is good but at the same time it's like how long does it freaking take to fix this stuff.
I'm sorry but I hope that PS4 footage that was just recently released was not this final build of the game or I would suggest you guys find another racing game to look forward to. That game looks like it was STILL a good year and a half off from being just a standard looking racer! http://n4g.com/news/1689226...
@deadpoolio - Project Cars was supposed to be released in 2012. Does that meet your definition of vaporware yet?
This is really funny. I remember the time when the Wii U owners and PC gamers hyped this game to high heaven for looking mind-blowing and being a true racing simulator. All the while they bashed Gran Turismo, Driveclub and sometimes even Forza. Then it suddenly went mutliplat and the Wii U owners went silent as they lost exclusivity. Then the Wii U version was delayed and they were really embarassed and completely stopped caring about their once prized exclusive. Then came the screenshots and gameplay vids and the PC gamers went from boasting the visuals to defending them. Finally, the game got delayed on all platforms and the fans were still defending it in the name of polish. Now with the latest video and delay, all the hype and anticipation has died down. Now the fans who hyped this game are nowhere to be seen. So much crow and humble pie being served. Pride always has a fall.
Is it okay to just laugh at this point? After all the trolls using it to downplay the visuals in every other driving game... after the what seems like never ending development... after all the hype. I think it will eventually see a release, but will it make any money after this long in development? I was interested a couple of years ago, now I just don't care.
@Griever Was any of that necessary? All fanboys hype everything, its not restricted to one platform/thing.
Yeah, the game did not look good int he last video I saw. I thought the game was going to be a graphical showpiece, but not according to what I saw.
not vaporware, they are just trying to earn the "most delayed" trophy/achievement. All according to their plans
so a 3 month delay in all huh..I probably wouldn't mind normally because I know stuff happen's but, SMS smugness and the shots they took at GT and Forza and all the hype they themselves made, I get the feeling these guys are all talk right now.Don't make a release date unless your 100% sure you can release it on that date.As it stands they are "99%" complete with the game, whats to say that final 1% wont take another 6 months? Make a release date when you are 100% complete.If they initially said mid may I wouldn't have an issue..
Wow, so much hate! I joined pCARS on 13-10-2011. Today I tested the newest build of the game. It looks good and it feels good. I don't know anything about the console versions of pCARS but the PC version will be really great. Funu to drive and will look and perform very good on a good machine.
@rumble I want to know how excited you are for a game you've been playing in bits and pieces for 4+ years now? I'm not trolling you seriously! Personally I don't even touch demos and some times even trailers just so the game would feel fresh.
I've said it before: This game spent way too long in development. The engine is too old. It's no longer cutting edge, which is what garnered it some attention in the first place. Now, they have virtually nothing going for them, so they have to get the physics perfect, include tons of content, and perhaps even enter the marketplace at a discount.
Drive Club ftw! By the time project cars comes out, a few more sony racers will be even more advanced.
I'm torn: they shouldn't put out a game that needs to be patched, so I laud them for that; but on the other hand, they should have never announced the game's release date because they obviously can't keep a design schedule.
This game is never coming out is it? They keep pushing it every month, starting to lose hype for it. Also, that video that was posted earlier showed lost of graphical issues, like pop-ins and whatnot. They should just delay it until they feel comfortable with it. Each time we get close to release is just another disappointing news after another.
I think the game might come at October or something this year. They seriously need to sort many things out. At the video, the guy was saying it had Photorealistic graphics. I laughed my @ss off lol. Its not even close. Maybe on PC it is but on console, its not.
Thing is Driveclub lools so good that it set a pretty high standard
Its not that DC looks so good, its about PC looks average at best. I mean come on, did you see that cockpit view? What the hell is that? its like a PS3 game.
@Dark Ocelot That makes sense that you feel it looks like a PS3 game, this game was originally a last generation game in the first place. Remember, they were showing this game off back when Gran Turismo 5 and Forza 3 were still the talk of the town. Yeah, it's been THAT long. What doesn't make sense is that after ALL this time, it doesn't look at least equal to today's driving games. Hopefully, the game play makes up for it (for SMS sake)
Damn weird, i got a email from them today discussing the upgrade from beta to full game on Steam, no mention on there about it being delayed.
They mentioned it's getting closer to its release (using different words). I'm not going to quote the message. I'm still excited for this game. I won't have to upgrade from my G27 to a "next-gen" steering that'll end up costing much more than my PS4. Even then, the physics feel good and I wonder if the final code will be optimized well enough for my computer to play it at NEAR ultra graphics. I can only really play it at 50fps with mostly ultra graphics settings.
Well they know they cannot release a crap racing game also, driveclub already blows it away so does Forza...Now there is a new Forza and Gran Turismo 7 to deal with.... If they expect the game to sell, they need to polish the hell out of it and try to get it on the same level at least as its competition or whats the point
Yeah, especially since they have been hyping it so much. Hopefully for the sake of the people waiting for it, that it actually delivers a good experience.
For a game that has, 'project', in the title, they're not doing a very good job of managing that project.
Made me laugh. Funny bubble for you, sir.
do we have any new release date, or just pushed until further notice?
Mid-May but given how there's no definite date, I would take it with a grain of salt.
Once again, SMS over-promises on their product. Do they know Peter Molyneux?
I knew it, this is at least delay #4. I'll be shocked if it ever releases.
There's a surprise
Oh man another one eh, this generation has for the most part been delays and remasters. Just imagine how bad next generation will be... quite an ugly thought.
A part of me thinks that they should change the title to "Project Cars Delayed" since everyone knows it by that name.
Just gonna wait for the PS5 version
probably the best decision, considering how atrocious the cockpit view currently looks
Any wagers on which releases first? Project Cars or Driveclub PS+ edition?
I want no parts of that bet lol
Half Life 3
Wait, what? * They went back and forward like this for several years. Eventually, they admitted that Project Cars never existed... it was... a cleverly controlled episode of mass delusion. Project cars was never a game... WE are Project Cars - the project was to see how many times a release date could be adjusted before people figured it out... and we imagined the whole thing. *
Like that game WarDevil that was a tech demo, then a PS3 exclusive that was then turned into an CG animated show then a game again then... Delayed then finally someone from ignition said wardevil doesn't exist... Lol yeah I dig this story with PC... This game was announced during the fanboy wars of GT5 and Forza 3... Then WiiU to PC... Lol I really can't with this game. And to think people were using it to bash Driveclub and sometimes Forza. 😂
Officially dont care anymore. Was gonna buy it, but sick of waiting.
And now you know how us Wii U owners feel. This is what get on a daily basis from third parties.
Oh my f******** god ! Are you seriously ? I'm done.
OMG!...... the delay Gen
Next gen will be worse, probably multiply the costs of developing now by 4 or 6 times.
The Witcher 3 costs 15 million dollars to develop. The games are not expensive to develop. Its the damn marketing. I mean it had 15 million development cost and 25 million marketing. Thats outrageous.
@ DarkOcelet I'm not surprised, it's either marketing and/or paying Hollywood celebrities for their voice - both are completely unnecessary. The ones who should be getting the high pay are the developers, especially if they make an outstanding and well selling game.
Why set release dates these days..... All these delays take the piss
Hopefully we'll be thankful of the delay if it makes for a great game. If it ends up still being sucky then that'll be annoying.
'Tis a cruel fate that Project CARS is resigned to.
Driveclub is my racer tbh, will rent pc when it's out but I will patiently wait till gt7 tbh when wheels are cheaper also.
Yup, I'm still playing. I'll fire you some challenges. I mainly focus on drift events.
So, you're saying that you can't even do a proper race, then? Pathetic.
No, that's not what I'm saying.
So much for the bull shots, that got everyone excited , apart from those that knew it was never going to look like that on anything but a silicon graphics work station. Where's driveclub delivered on its promise.
Not good ... but face it Driveclub could have done with an extra few months too , and that was on a single platform. Lots of work to do a proper game. It's name is fitting at this stage.
Yeah, but the difference here is Driveclub wasn't in development so long. Project Cars was in development during the time Gran Turismo 5 and Forza 3 were new games. Single platform or multiplatform, with that amount of time to work with, there is little to no excuse for this.
Well that sucks. Lucky for me I still have a decsent sim in the form of FM5. Im still looking forward to Pcars. I would rather a game get delayed for extra polish than be rushed out. And from what I have heard the car handling in Pcars is worth checking out if you are a car enthusiast. Which I just so happen to be.
Well on the other hand, Kunos released the Dream pack DLC and that will keep me occupied for a while.
I'll be playing bloodbourne and mortal kombat x. while I'll wait. It no biggie. Patience is a virtue.
Good move P cars has potential if done right and @ the moment its just not there.
At least we get to play it this year.
How many times its been delayed?
Yup that's it! Canceling the pre order and waiting for Forza 6. This is getting annoying
I knew it. I might've jynxed it on the comment section as well. The game didn't look ready and that guy seemed nervous while trying to hype it up. Glad it didn't fool any of you either. I'm over this game.
