Project Gotham Racing 4Submited By Faris Hussain
Project Gotham Racing 4 is the fourth title in the main Project Gotham Racing series, developed by Bizarre Creations and published by Microsoft Game Studios.
Project Gotham Racing 4 was accidentally leaked by a Peugeot press release for a competition for a car designed by a contestant to be featured in the game before the official Bizarre announcement. The competition was won by Mr. Mihai Panaitescu with the Peugeot Flux.
Shortly after, the game was then officially confirmed at X06, with a trailer titled Eclipse shown. The trailer was also made available to download on the Xbox Live Marketplace. The car featured in the trailer is a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. The song in the trailer is “Shadow” by The Prodigy.
Microsoft announced at the 2007 E3 that PGR4 would be released in September 2007. However, Bizarre subsequently said that game wouldn’t be released “until it’s done” citing reasons that they had spent a substantial amount of money and time on the game. “We feel like we’ve got more time [on PGR4]. Last time round, we feel like we got the game ripped away from us” said Brian Woodhouse of Bizarre Creations.
