Slightly Mad Studios has said it is struggling to get the game running well on Nintendo's hardware, which may not bode well for its potential release.
"At the moment we're running at about 23fps on the Wii U," studio boss Ian Bell explained via the game's official forum. That's 720p, not 1080p.
"Honestly, unless we really cut the looks back I think we're looking to Nintendo's next console."
On the subject of Nintendo's next console, Bell said that , "We're awaiting/hoping for more of a hardware announcement at E3, we could reach a fairly solid 30fps but it might take a hell of a lot of work.
"On the other hand, about halfway through us finishing, Nintendo might announce a new console (I have zero knowledge on this BTW but I've heard 'rumours'). Our work might just be the best thing that ever hit that new console in the driving sim genre.
"So we're playing a waiting game at the moment and yes, economics do come in to it."
So it sounds like the developer isn't hopeful about Project Cars on Wii U at least. Is anyone surprised?
