Given that neither the Oculus Rift nor Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays (HMD) have been released to consumers, VR fans don’t have much to look forward to this Christmas season. Many were looking to Slightly Mad Studios’ Project CARS on PC as the VR title to tide them over until the new year given its support for the Oculus Rift’s second development kit (DK2). Sadly, the title has just been delayed past its original November 2014 release.
Project CARS will now be arriving on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 17th March 2015 in the US and 20th March in Europe. The developer has reasoned that, while this was a tough decision to make, it would give the team the opportunity to polish the title to an even higher standard. The title is due to be distributed by Bandai Namco Games and also plans to support the Project Morpheus VR HMD on PlayStation 4 when it is release.
It’s undoubtedly a disapointing setback for anyone hoping to play a bigger VR title this year, but if it helps the title reach an even higher standard of quality then fans will surely be happy to wait. VRFocus will continue to follow Project CARS as it nears release, reporting back with any further updates on the title’s development.
