Developer Slightly Mad Studios should just stop announcing release dates and delays and just tell us when the game is done.
This made me wonder. You know how in the music business more and more artists are not announcing release dates but just dropping their project(s) out of no where? What if the gaming industry did that? What exactly IS the point of a release date? Why not just release your game one day, 12AM - and make a press release letting everyone know; with hard copies being in stores the NEXT day. Not talking about completely dropping unknown projects - but maybe announcing it, then releasing it at random.
I would love to see much short times between announcement and release, but you do need some time to build hype to generate sales. The music industry is different, because it's old way of doing things has completely imploded. Fewer people listen to radio, Forget MTV. It's much harder for artists to get heard. So the "oh guess what? I'm releasing an album today" tactic is a way of generating headlines and attention. If too many artists do it, it will quickly lose its impact
What if i don't have $60 that day?
@Z501, then get it when you do o_O? @uth11 yeah, valid points.
Project release date.
Should be called Delay Cars not Project Cars the release dates have been a total joke and the game looks nothing like what has been promised,as of now my hopes on this game are heading for the crusher.
The gaming community is getting very annoying lately. If they want to take their time to deliver their best possible work, I say let them. There's plenty to play until PC releases. Let the developers take their time and deliver a great game.
Gamers have a point here. They constantly delay there game while players are keeping their hopes up for a release date. Gamers are not getting annoyings, developers are. GTA V PC anyone?
I won't argue that most complaints aren't annoying, But in this case.. everytime a developer announces a release date and misses it, they lose some credibility. SMS has done it at least 5 times, maybe more. delay from 2012 to 2013 delayed to fall 2014, delayed to March 17 2015 delayed to April 2 2015 delayed to unspecified date
But I want it now wah wah meh zzzzzz.
It's unfortunate and bullcrap, but this article is worse. GO A-WAY
They're seriously playing with fire here, and they're gonna get burned. Delaying it last year was understandable because they didn't want to compete with the huge titles that were releasing at the time, but now this is the PERFECT time to roll it out. It's been much too long, in all honesty. And not to mention the fact that they still have yet to mention the fate of the Wii U version. Goodness, who's running this project?
Very true. Is this the first time a game has been delayed for the 3rd time? Not only do they have to deliver with all the additional fix-ups and so on, but do think just like with DriveClub they need to give out appropriately a lot of worthy free DLC.
At this rate the fabled Wii U version will be out first. lmao
