Though originally slated for a September 2007 debut, Project Gotham Racing 4 for the XBox 360 is now officially set to be released on October 2nd in the U.S. and October 12th in Europe. Bizarre Creations, the gaming house behind the PGR series, acknowledges it'll be two days late with the product, but according to Joystiq, they want to put "the finishing on the game to ensure it crosses the finish line at retail as the best titel yet in the 'PGR' racing franchise." Considering that PGR 4 is packed with a long list of cars and motorcycles, as well as featuring more weather scenarios than the Gulf of Mexico this time of year, we believe it will be the best of the series. Whether it's better than Forza Motorsport 2 or the also upcoming Gran Turismo 5 will have to wait until someone performs a proper smackdown comparison of the three.
