Activision's NASCAR delayed for polish

"You will be even happier," says dev.

Activision's NASCAR game is back in the garage; the release has been pushed from February back to the end of March - 29th, to be specific.

"The main reason is we simply wanted more time to polish it and hopefully make it the experience you guys are craving. It's never easy to delay a game as it can cause a lot of disappointment, but we genuinely feel that by doing this you guys will be even happier with the end product," explains developer Eutechnyx on its forum (via One of Swords).

"Believe me we're all just as desperate to have this game in your hands now and get online and race against you guys. But sometimes more time is needed to get that fantastic end product we want to ship."

NASCAR 2011: The Game is Activision's first attempt at the licence. UK developer Eutechnyx has notched experience working on Ferrari Challenge and SuperCar Challenge before this.

Promised are: big crashes, 16 players online, sequels and fun. Will Ricky Bobby be in it? We don't know.
