Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco on Wednesday announced another delay for the gorgeous-looking upcoming racing game Project Cars. The game, which was originally scheduled to launch March 17, is now slated to arrive on April 2 for PC, and April 7 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

No mention was made of a release date for the Wii U version of Project Cars, which is due out sometime in 2015. We've followed up with Bandai Namco for more details.

The short shift for Project Cars was necessary so Slightly Mad could make "final adjustments" to the game. You can read a full statement about the delay from Slightly Mad boss Ian Bell below.

“Moving the release date was not an easy decision to make, as we know our fans are eager to get their hands-on on Project Cars," Bell said. "But we know that these extra days will allow us to provide the best game experience that our fans deserve. We assure you the wait will be worth it when the game does arrive early April."

The hyper-realistic racing simulator was originally set for a November 2014 debut, though a month before release that date was pushed to March 2015. Slightly Mad's overall goal for the project is to create the "most authentic, beautiful, intense, and technically advanced racing game on the planet." The developer also claims that Project Cars boasts the largest track roster for any recently released racing game.

Slightly Mad Studios also developed Need for Speed Shift 2: Unleashed and World of Speed.
