Ridge Racer Unbounded Delayed

Published on March 6th, 2012

Namco Bandai has announced that , developed by Flatout maker’s Bugbear, has been delayed.

Originally the destructive racer was set to be released later this month, but in order to make the next chapter in the drifting series as good as possible, a delay has been deemed necessary.

We're just going to have to wait a little while longer.

“Namco Bandai Games confirmed Ridge Racer Unbounded will be released in North America later in 2012 to give the development team some additional time to pack the disc with features that will truly make the game sing,” stated the press release.

Even though this announcement is specifically for the North American market,  it’s easy to surmise that EU fans will also be affected by this delay.

More news on pre-order bonuses and a definitive release date will be confirmed soon.

Update: According to Namco Bandai UK marketing director, Lee Kirton, this delay will only affect the North American release of Ridge Racer Unbounded – Europe and other territories are unaffected.

Our apologies for the confusion.

Expect Ridge Racer Unbounded to be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and, for the first time ever, PC later this month.

      Hmm, ‘delayed’ to me says ‘it’s looking a bit poo so we’re desperately trying to get it better before embarrassing ourselves with a shoddy update to a classic series’.

      Have any of you guys actualy played it?

      We have and it’s actually a really fun racing game.

      If you’ve played any of the Flatout games made by Bugbear, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting into.

      Namely lots of destruction and really intense racing.

      Flatout Head-on for the PSP was one of my favourites, so thanks for that.
