Slightly Mad Studios, the British development house perhaps best remembered for Need for Speed: Shift
, is working on a new racing game called Project Cars
. Today the developer has announced three new platforms for the game: Xbox One
, which was originally due to launch this year on PC and later on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U, has now been pushed back to Fall 2014. This delay also means that Xbox 360 and PS3 have been left by the wayside - those ports have been canceled - and so the updated platform list includes Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, PC and SteamOS.
The "Cars" in Project Cars
stands for "community-assisted racing simulator," a nod to Project Cars' crowd-funded and community-driven development plan
. Those who have committed cash to Slightly Mad Studios have had access to frequently-updated builds of Project Cars
and have helped steer the game's progress since late 2011.
