Another delay hits this open-world racer.

It won't be until "early 2024" when you can take your next test drive. Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown has once again been delayed, this time pushing the open-world racing game from a 2023 release into next year. First announced in 2020, Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown was first expected to release in September 2022 before being pushed into 2023.

Today's delay was made during a livestream that featured about 20 minutes of developer information and gameplay footage. You can find that video below.

Like previous entries in the series, Solar Crown will once again offer drivers a vast open world to explore. You can participate in races, earn cash, purchase new and better cars, and even purchase new places to live. The series always felt far more chill and leaned more towards lifestyle sim than other open-world racers such as Forza Motorsport. The gameplay footage shown today gives us a look at some of the game's multiplayer. It also shows us a small glimpse of some of the on-foot social interactions.

Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown will offer a recreation (claimed to be 1:1) of Hong Kong. A beta for the game is expected to run for select players from July 24-27. You can apparently register for that beta on the Test Drive Unlimited website but I'm only seeing a signup form for their newsletter.
