No Test Driving Unlimited 2 Until 2011
It looks like you'll have to wait a bit longer before you can live the virtual high life.
Earlier this year, Atari announced they would finally deliver a sequel to the 2006 title, Test Drive Unlimited, and it would drop in late 2010. However, developer Eden Games requires more time to polish up the multiplayer experience, so they're pushing back the release date. It's now going to launch some time in the first quarter of 2011; Eden's senior producer Nour Polloni has said they'll also use the extra time to incorporate consumer feedback. By default, the scheduled beta test has been delayed to reflect the new estimated release window. But if you've already signed up for the beta, Eden would like to offer a consolation for the delay by giving you an exclusive in-game item (which has yet to be announced). If you're unfamiliar, Test Drive Unlimited 2 is all about fast cars and a fast-lane lifestyle; it'll boast a revamped single-player mode plus the opportunity to create in-game clubs comprised of your online Friends. It's the closest you'll probably get to a multi-million-dollar home on an island with supercars in the garage.
Essentially, you will live the experience, which certainly sounds appealing. Too bad we have to wait, but the final product should be entertaining.
