The Original Open World Driving Game Was Originally Scheduled To Arrive In Sept 2022!
Nacon has declared that development of Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown has been pushed into 2023 and that the last-generation versions of the game have all been cancelled from development.
From a recent blog post, the developer stated that its “goal with Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown is to make it the most polished gaming experience in the franchise by spending more time on its development”.
Nacon’s “Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown” was previously scheduled to be released in September 2022 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
“Finally, with the aim of making the most of the technology in the latest consoles and maximising the overall quality of the game, Nacon has decided to no longer develop Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.”
Nacon also revealed that it is working towards a timeline for several closed betas. While the studio didn’t confirm when these tests would take place, they said the tests would allow them “to gather your valuable feedback so we can keep improving the game’s quality until it releases, while also staying in more regular contact with you”.
Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown was Unveiled in July 2020, the third game in the long-running Test Drive franchise’s open-world Unlimited sub-series promises to let players get to grips with “extraordinary cars” within Hong Kong “a luxurious island world recreated at 1:1 scale”.
“The brand new Test Drive Unlimited keeps the DNA from the first games, and revamps it for the modern era,” promises the blurb accompanying a trailer released last April.
“You have the freedom to progress however you like, the classic open championship concept returns too. Live your best life. Race, cruise, and hang out with your friends until the sun goes down and even after!”
