Project Cars confirms UK release date

Carburetor believe it.

Bandai Namco has confirmed the UK release date for slick crowdfunded driving game, Project Cars.

The eagerly anticipated title will roll onto the tarmac on 21 November, a date revealed by GAME's Twitter feed. "JUST IN!" ejaculated the high street retailer. "@BandaiNamcoUK have just given us a juicy scoop! (Not of ice cream...) @WMDCars will release on PS4 Xbox One and PC Nov 21st! Vroom"

The November date is for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. It was due in 2013, with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions as well, but those dropped off the radar and Oculus Rift support came in. The Wii U version is apparently still on track for a 2015 release.

The game was funded in a unique way, even for the world of crowdfunding. Members of the community bought into the development, contributing to its design, and will receive a cut of the game's profits in return. Bandai Namco only came aboard to help publish the game later. The system even attracted the attention of the Financial Conduct Authority. That's all sorted out now and the game is on the final straight.

Here's the latest trailer.
