Namco Bandai has announced that Ridge Racer Unbounded, 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.
“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.
