Bandai Namco has officially announced that Project Cars 2 will release later this year on PS4, though no exact date has been given at this time. The announcement comes in the form of a trailer that shows off some of the in-game visuals, though they’re still subject to change.
“Late 2017” is what we’re left with, so it’s a safe bet that it’ll release October/November when the public is in buying-mode for Christmas. Not a bad tactic…
It’s still a long while until the game is out, and we imagine there’ll be the usual media blowout that precedes the release, but what we’ve got right now is what’s available from Bandai Namco’s website:
