Test Drive Unlimited 2 pulls into the pits
After announcing last month that Test Drive Unlimited 2 will be hitting the virtual race track on 24 September, Atari has stated that it will be delaying the game until Q1 of 2011.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 will be coming out on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, as well as the PC.
