Project CARS has been delayed once more, and this time the racer has been given a mid-May release window, so Slightly Mad Studios has enough time to add yet another layer of spit and polish.

According to the press release there's little issues found in remaining 0.1% that they want to fix, meaning we won't get the game next month as expected. Here's the rather lengthy official statement:

"Despite our long heritage and pedigree in making critically-acclaimed racing games, Project CARS is by far the grandest and most intricately detailed of them all. Despite therefore the game being 99.9% complete, the remaining 0.1% attending to small issues and bugs has been tricky to anticipate. We're absolutely dedicated to delivering a ground-breaking experience and by targeting mid-May fans can be assured that's what they'll receive" said studio head Ian Bell.

"Again, we want to thank our fans for their support and patience on this matter. There's a high expectancy from racing fans around the world that Project CARS is going to be an exciting new contender in the simulation racing space and we firmly believe gamers deserve it to be in its most complete and polished state when they come to play it on day one. And since the gaming community is our primary focus and has always been at the heart of the project during development, we would like to offer some free content to all players as compensation for this short delay and as acknowledgement of how grateful we are. This gift, that we're sure is going to excite fans, will be available from day one and revealed shortly. Keep an eye on our website for more info."

What this free gift is going to be we'll have to wait and see, but at least there's a silver lining to this particular delay. When it does finally launch, it'll be appearing on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, with a Wii U version expected at some point thereafter.
