Long-running racing series moves further away from annual release schedule.

After taking an extra year to work on 2015's enjoyable Need For Speed reboot, developer Ghost Games has announced a similar gap year for the sequel.

The latest entry in the Need for Speed franchise is just says away from release, and the official trailer shows some of the exciting, driving action. Not only is the game packed with the usual assortment of high-performance cars, but Ken Block is one of real-life stars with his Mustang Hoonicorn.

Although we doubt you've forgotten, the upcoming Mad Max game is so packed full of crazy, it should come with a warning label.

Our impressions of the Sony Playstation 4's first racing title, DriveClub, were not particularly positive. That'd have been a real problem ten years ago, when a developer couldn't easily add new content to a game, but today's world of constantly connected consoles makes it easy for new features to be added long after a title goes on sale.

GTA V features an "R18+" rating in Australia, the equivalent of a "Mature" rating in the US.

The Next Generation Is A Beautiful One

We've spilled a lot of virtual ink in our coverage of Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar Games' 2013 blockbuster was arguably one of that year's very best titles, delivering a unique version of automotive mayhem, along with all the other things – guns, sex, drugs, murder, thievery and biting satire – that the series has been praised and criticized for.

Confusing The Frosting With The Cake

I've been waiting to play, to really play, this game for a long time. If you're a Playstation 4 user reading Autoblog, short odds say you have, too.

Batman is getting yet another new Batmobile. We recently saw teases of director Zack Snyder's take on the iconic vehicle for the upcoming movie starring the Dark Knight and Superman. The movie isn't due to hit screens until 2016, so until then, we'll have to focus on the video game world as the Bat gets a new car to appear in Batman: Arkham Knight.

The holiday season of 2014 looks like another great year for fans of racing games. Last year, there was the double-whammy of console motorsports with Forza Motorsport 5 for the Xbox One and Gran Turismo 6 for the PlayStation 3. This year, Project CARS and Driveclub are the new contenders out to challenge the veterans.

Driveclub, a racing title for the Playstation 4, was first revealed last year with a fair amount of promise. Our own Seyth Miersma was intrigued, citing the game's competent physics, good looks and social features, during a short demo at the Electronics Entertainment Expo. Set for a position in the launch roster for the latest generation of Sony's gaming console, fans were disappointed when the game was unexpectedly delayed.

Project CARS is aiming to be the next great racing sim. Offering a mix of modern and classic cars on famous tracks, developer Slightly Mad Studios is trying to inject a fresh energy into the genre, and at the moment its game looks ready to take on Forza and Gran Turismo.

In the lead-up to the launch of the PlayStation 4, Sony touted the racing game DriveClub as one of the system's biggest offerings. However, it was subsequently delayed and still hasn't arrived. That meant that racing fans had to watch friends playing Forza 5 on the Xbox One, while Sony countered with the Gran Turismo 6 on the previous-generation PlayStation 3. Now, it looks like DriveClub might finally be close to making it to consoles.

For the 11th year now, the makers of Gran Turismo will be choosing some of the most interesting and outlandish cars and trucks from the SEMA show in Las Vegas, to digitally render and immortalize for "an upcoming game." Being as the newest title on Polyphony's docket would seem to be Gran Turismo 6, we imagine that the SEMA contestants for this Gran Turismo Award could end up as an especially sweet piece of downloadable content therein.

Playstation has been touting the upcoming racing game DriveClub from Evolution Studios as an important launch title pillar for the soon-to-street Playstation 4. We briefly demo'd DriveClub at E3 this summer, and saw a lot of the potential in both the gameplay and the baked-in social elements. With the game's recent inclusion in the latest official PS4 commercial, Perfect Day, playing DriveClub on Day One seemed like a foregone conclusion (scroll down to have a look).

Gran Turismo 7 will likely arrive for the Playstation 4 by 2015, according to an interview Polygon had with series producer Kaz Yamauchi. Considering Gran Turismo's history for delays, though, that one- to two-year target needs to be rather flexible. Still, the interview with Yamauchi, which focuses largely on PS3 title Gran Turismo 6, held one more interesting tidbit for those looking for the next-generation of GT titles - Gran Turismo 7 will share its physics engine with GT6, with Yamauchi say
