Bigben and the studio Kylotonn have announced that the release date for TT Isle of Man, initially planned for November, has been pushed back to March 2018. The game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
The Kylotonn team and Bigben issued the following statement to the game’s community of fans:
“As you know, we have been working on the TT Isle of Man game for quite some time now, and we’re very satisfied with what we’ve achieved on many points. We’ve made an almost perfect replica of the famous Snaefell Mountain Course and the in-game version provides just as many technical challenges as its real-world counterpart. And, never has a video game displayed so many graphical details on such a long race track, and with such speed required to render those graphics.
Yet, after much discussion, we believe that the current game is not in line with our expectations, primarily: the gameplay and motorbike physics. Given how important this is to the game, and your experience, we do not want to disappoint you on this. As you might have seen, TT Isle of Man was initially scheduled for November 2017, but we need a little more time. We have therefore decided to push the release date back to March 2018. This extra time will allow us to improve all aspects of the game. Delaying the release of the game is not an easy decision to make but we really want to offer you an experience worthy of the legendary TT and we hope you understand!”
The Isle of Man TT is a legend for every motorbiker, a race that has left no room for error for more than 100 years, with riders hurtling at over 300 km/h on village roads and having to negotiate more than 200 curves in 60 km.
The game is an exact reproduction of the race (reproduced at a 1:1 scale using laser scanning technology), which is one of the longest circuits in the world. TT Isle of Man has everything characteristic of the event: speed, risk and extreme sensations.
TT Isle of Man will be available in March 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
