Trackmania Nations Remake Has Been Delayed To This July

Drivers, cool your engines for a second.

Several game launches have been pushed back over the last month or so, as teams adjust to working from home amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The remake of Trackmania Nations, dubbed simply Trackmania, is the latest to join this list.

In a news post today, Ubisoft Nadeo announced that the upcoming remake would be pushed back to July 1 from its original May 5 date. The statement cites the delays that have happened around the industry, including the international Trackmania ZrT Cup, which was postponed due to concerns over the coronavirus.

"Also, our teams have been adapting to working from home, and even though we already are back to a good level of efficiency we need some time to make up for the transition," read the statement.

The team did still share a trailer, showing gameplay of the upcoming multiplayer time-attack racer. Seen above, the remake of Trackmania Nations is looking pretty solid so far.

Trackmania (2020) is planned to be a seasonal game with regular updates and peer-reviewed maps, as well as player-created maps. Basically, the same sort of cycle many games manage nowadays, from Call of Duty down to Ubisoft's own Rainbow Six Siege. As long as it maintains the wondrous, slick racing of previous Trackmanias, I'm interested.

Meanwhile, major games continue to delay launches or call them off indefinitely in the wake of COVID-19. Most physical events have been shifting to digital as well, the most recent being Gamescom 2020, which went fully digital following a nationwide ban on events in Germany.
