Remember Project CARS? The ultra-realistic racing sim was a pretty big deal back in the early days of the Wii U, and Slightly Mad Studios seemed pretty optimistic for the Wii U port. As time went on, the game was continually hit with delays – though the developer maintained that the Wii U would deliver a competent port – but the act was eventually dropped and the Wii U port was torched.

When the game was cancelled there was some hope for Nintendo fans, as Slightly Mad mentioned that it was looking forward to Nintendo's next hardware announcement, but now it looks like those hopes have been dashed, too. A fan recently asked the developers on Twitter if a version of the game is bound for the Nintendo Switch, and the response wasn't encouraging:

It's rather disappointing that Slightly Mad has given the Nintendo audience the Jekyll and Hyde treatment, but hopefully there'll be other similar racing sims to look forward to on the upcoming platform.

What do you think? Are you disappointed? Why do you think the studio doesn't seem to want to port the game to the Switch? Drop us a comment in the section below.
