There's unfortunate news for those gamers looking forward to Trackmania Turbo
, as the game has been delayed until 2016. Ubisoft stated that due to comments and playtests for the game that they need to make improvements, and said "we’re committed to ensuring that our fans – both old and new – will always have the best experience possible".
During the additional months, we plan to enhance the campaign and the game’s interface. Since multiplayer is such a strong component of the Trackmania experience, we also plan to continue improving Trackmania Turbo’s multiplayer modes. With updated multiplayer modes comes more multiplayer testing. The extra time will give us an opportunity to make sure that the online infrastructure is stable and that the online experience is a smooth one.
We are also working on adding an extra feature that offers a new way to challenge your friends on your favorite user-made tracks. This is a special mode that we think will extend Trackmania Turbo’s longevity because of how it spurs competition between players.
So, while the game being delayed is obviously bad news, hopefully the overall improvements planned for the game will make it worth the wait. Trackmania Turbo
is now set for release in early 2016.
