Slightly Mad officially hits the brakes on Wii U version of Project CARS


It looks like Slightly Mad Studios couldn’t coax enough horsepower out of the Wii U to properly port Project CARS to Nintendo’s console after all. Speaking to Nintendo Life, Studio Head Ian Bell confirmed the cancellation this morning:

The official line is that we’re awaiting an announcement from Nintendo on new hardware. As of now [Project CARS] is simply too much for the Wii U.

After a number of delays (and the cancellation of planned PS3 and Xbox 360 ports), Project CARS was released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in May. Nintendo plans to reveal more information about their next console, the “NX,” in 2016. Perhaps it will be powerful enough to handle Project CARS 2, Slightly Mad’s recently announced racing sequel.
