Project CARS Cancelled for Wii U.

After stating in previous forum posts over the validity of getting Project Cars running on Wii U (“unless we really cut the looks back I think we’re looking to Nintendo’s next console”), studio head Ian Bell has seemingly admitted defeat in the task.

Slightly Mad studios recently said it “now turns its attention to the future with the announcement of the continuation of the franchise with Project CARS 2″.Last summer, in announcing one of many delays the game faced over its development, Bandai Namco said it was “committed to delivering an exceptional and unique experience for racing fans on Wii U”, and that version would launch in 2015.

The sequel is already well into development, and once Nintendo finalizes and announces their new hardware officially, Slightly Mad might hopefully begin the porting procedure to bring the next Nintendo platform a racing simulator game that’s more than just the arcade goodness of Mario Kart. Despite much perseverance on the Wii U version of Project Cars, we will no longer be actively pursuing development on it as the quality does not meet our own high standards nor our intended vision for the title on this platform. The developer has been making genuine efforts to get the game up and running, but admitted earlier in the year that it was only running at around 23 frames per second. The team were hoping that Nintendo might announce some new hardware at E3, but, as those of you who haven’t been living under a rock for the last month will know, there was nothing. However, a blog claims Slightly Mad will “continue providing Project CARS with fresh new features, updates, and great things to play with throughout the year”.

Given the new hardware is unlikely to be launched until late 2016 at the very earliest it’d probably be Project CARS 2 that would actually appear on the system. By coincidence Project CARS got a major update today, with the addition of the Ruapuna Park track in New Zealand, as well as the IMSA GTO Audi 90, LMP Audi R8, and R18 e-Tron Quattro cars.
