Nacon, the game publisher, appears to have once again postponed the release of Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown. A fresh trailer for the game was released, showcasing off-road explorable terrains and the expansive open world, but unfortunately, failed to disclose an exact launch date, simply stating a vague 2024 release.

The third installment of the Test Drive Unlimited sub-series was initially announced back in July 2020. The game was initially scheduled to hit the markets in September 2022, but there seems to have been a string of delays, pushing the release date first to 2023, then to the early part of 2024. Nacon’s financial statement hinted at a Q1 2024 release, suggesting a roll-out by the end of March.


However, a developer newsletter accompanying the new trailer on the game's Steam page seems to suggest that the precise release date might still be a long way off. The message was sympathetic to the anticipation of the release date by the fans, but reiterated their commitment to ensuring a smooth, stable, and enjoyable gaming experience. It signaled that they are currently focusing on several key areas, such as strengthening the server infrastructure and enhancing game performance.

According to the developers, a steadfast release date will be shared as soon as these two areas stabilize. In the meanwhile, they have announced plans to initiate more test phases, including the Closed Playtest 3, set to cover a larger scope and span across more territories.

Promising a unique gaming experience, the third Test Drive Unlimited game is set to offer players the thrill of navigating "extraordinary cars" within a "luxurious island world recreated at 1:1 scale". Players will get to explore a digitally-grounded model of Hong Kong Island.
