Atari has announced that Test Drive Unlimited 2 will be delayed until 2011 due to road works.. I mean, needing a bit more tweaking and polishing so that the finished product will be as best quality as possible.
“To date, Test Drive Unlimited 2 has generated great media buzz and incredible excitement amongst gamers and fans of the franchise,” said David Nadal, Studio Manager of Eden Games. ”By moving the title’s release date to early 2011, we will be able to further advance the game and take into account consumer feedback to help ensure we deliver a great online lifestyle racing experience.”
Atari and Eden Games will also be shifting the Beta scheduling to coincide with the new launch and will reward those already signed up with an exclusive in-game item. Eden will confirm a new date for the Beta in the coming weeks that will roll out in several phases rewarding the most loyal fans and Test Drive communities with exclusive access to one of the most highly-anticipated racers of 2011.
So, it looks like you’ll have to wait a bit longer before you can go lifestyle cruising and customizing your character to go on the most comprehensive social multiplayer driving experiences through the creation of powerful clubs comprised of friend networks that players create and grow as they earn their way up the social strata of TDU2.
