    I'm not going to have an angry rant. That's pointless.

    However, why state a two week delay if that's not really enough time?... clearly this was the case. I'd rather they have stated nothing at all, then announce a 2 month delay... rather than "oh give us a little more time then you can have it..." then later say this. It's more annoying than anything.

    I have a theory that they didn't get those 2 tracks licensed that are still in negotiation. It seemed like they were going to get it, but maybe those guys changed the conditions on them in the last second. At least that's my guess.

    I'd be fuming if this was the case... tracks can be added.

    Im sure almost everybody would be completely content without two tracks at release. I doubt they would delay it for another month just for two tracks and "polishing". But what the hey, you would know more than me.

    In this matter I actually don't. Like I said, just as surprised as you guys.

    Although they did start working on a couple of new cars and tracks just recently, so maybe this is what the additional free content will be. I know everyone is upset, even me a bit too, but I guess we will get a better game in the end. Maybe they will add a few of the features to the game too, who knows.

    The problem with that is that they'll need to rework the entire career mode most probably

    Last delay was disappointing but acceptable. Just getting stupid now. Anticipation is just a heel when it's constantly rewarded with let down. I'll pick it up if I see it on a shelf some day but won't bother looking forward to it any more. Glad I didn't go straight ahead and splurge on that wheel.

    To keep delaying a release date is simply not on. Give yourself a deadline, or don't. Have a delay if really needed, but give us proper reasons.

    However, don't keep the fans on a train with no end. It's not cool.

    'Polishing' tells the fans nothing. Please give the fans a reason for the delay... otherwise the annoyance builds further.

    I think they should have done it the Valve way - it'll be out when it's done. No-one would be disappointed then :)

    It's 2014 all over again. So many games had to get delayed last year and some were buggy on release. Lets just hope that this game won't end up having a ton of glitches and bugs (or framerate issues).

    Im astonished that the WMDers are kinda left in the dark as well. You guys could make better inferences on why but don't get a solid answer either. Im am very confused on what SMS's tactics are.

    This is ****ing pathetic. Not a great way to earn a reputation. This game had better be PERFECT when it releases or people are going to be pissed.

    This time round I'm not happy. Other games were way less than 99% ready at release, that didn't stop them. We're not expecting perfection, especially as we know the game will be actively maintained for a long time.

    Bad move.

    I believe the posts like this are the reason for this delay. And if they continue, there will be more delays.

    Right, I'm sure they care about my meaningless rant on a message board.

    I thought it was obvious we were both just being meaningless.

    Gaaah!

    If GTAV PC version sees another delay as well, I'll probably go into meltdown. Waiting for both of these games has been excruciating..

    How do you know? Actually I will not because mid May I'll get Codemasters F1 game instead. Maybe I'll get PCars preowned in a few months. So no 70 bucks for SMS. Bad luck.

    I guess PD has just given me thick skin over the years. Of course that makes me wonder, is it worse to delay it once for a long time (al la PD), or do a bunch of smaller delays?
