NASCAR The Game: 2011 – Release Date Update

By Tina Chubb - Jan 13, 2011

If you were hoping to get your hands on a copy of the upcoming NASCAR The Game: 2011 racing simulator within the next month, the I think you may be a little disappointed. It appears that Activision and developer Eutechnyx has delayed the release date until March 29th.

According to Matthew Kato over at, no particular reason was given as to why they pushed the launch date back. Although it’s not really that big of a delay, it’s still a delay and fans of the series are no doubt still going to be slightly disappointed.

This does however mean that the NASCAR The Game: 2011 title will miss the season-opening Daytona 500, and won’t arrive until right before the sixth race on April 3rd. As Rainier over at reports, the new game allows gamers to play as themselves or one of the real-world drivers.

The multi-car wrecks in NASCAR The Game: 2011 are said to be the most extreme that’s ever been experienced in an officially licensed racing game. You can view screenshots and a trailer for the upcoming game via the website here.

    if it pisses you off to have to wait, then think back to a year ago when you thought no one was even making a game period. So 1 more month is not that bad, they can take all the time they need as long a they deliever!
