Project Cars May be an “NX” Game Instead

Difficulties in bringing the game to Wii U may make the switch necessary.

Slightly Mad Studios, the developer behind Project Cars, has revealed that the reason behind the delay of the Wii U version of the game is that the studio is having trouble getting it to run at at a satisfactory level on the hardware.

The anticipated racing simulator was released earlier this month for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and, amongst other things, was notable for having a variety of customizable graphics options. Unfortunately, the team has been struggling to replicate the same graphics fidelity on Wii U.

The Head of Studio, Ian Bell, said in a post on the game’s forum that the team currently has it running at about 23 frames per second at the moment on 720p resolution. The team “could reach a fairly solid 30 fps but it might take a hell of a lot of work.”

He went on to say that “unless we really cut the looks back I think we’re looking to Nintendo’s next console.” When it was pointed out that Nintendo has stated that there will be no hardware announcement at E3, Bell stated that he has heard “rumours” that there may be an announcement, but clarified that he knows nothing on the matter himself.

In any event, Bell added that if nothing is announced at E3 or soon after, they planned to try and “have a go” at bringing the Wii U version up to a higher standard.

Would you be disappointed if Project Cars failed to make it to Wii U, or would you look forward to playing it on whatever the “NX” turns out to be? Let us know in the comments.
