Bandai Namco Games Europe S.A.S. has announced it will distribute Slightly Mad Studios’ racing game Project Cars globally.

Slightly Mad Studios, which previously worked on racing games like Need for Speed: Shift, and World of Speed, describes Project Cars as “the most authentic, beautiful, intense, and technically-advanced racing game on the planet.”

It is due to launch this November for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Steam OS, and Wii U, but didn’t have a distribution deal in place until now.

“We are tremendously happy to be collaborating with Slightly Mad Studios on this promising title, in which community expectations are fusing with racers’ expertise to craft the next generation of simulation!” Bandai Namco Games Europe’s VP Third Parties Alberto González Lorca said in a statement.

Project Cars, which started as a crowdfunded project on Slightly Mad Studios’ World of Mass Development platform, will support the Oculus Rift as well as Sony's virtual reality headset for PS4, Project Morpheus.
