After a four-year hiatus, Atari made the surprise announcement in March that it would finally be delivering the long-awaited sequel to 2006's open-world racer Test Drive Unlimited by September this year.
You'll have to wait a bit longer before you can take this baby for a spin.
Now, the publisher has revealed that it will be delaying the release of Test Drive Unlimited 2 to Q1 2011. The move was done to provide developer Eden Games more time to polish the game's connected console multiplayer experience.
Eden Games studio manager David Nadal said the extra time will also allow his team to take into account consumer feedback. The game's beta has also been pushed back to coincide with the new release schedule and will be confirmed by Atari in the coming weeks.
As consolation, the publisher announced it will reward gamers already signed up to the beta with an as-yet-unannounced exclusive in-game item.
Test Drive Unlimited 2 will see players racing in locations that include the Spanish party hotspot Ibiza and the paradise island of Oahu from the original title. In addition to new vehicles, race types, and a revamped single-player mode that can be played online or off, the game will give players the chance to build and grow in-game clubs composed of friend networks.
Test Drive Unlimited 2 will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

The german TDU fanpage TDU Central
(not to mix up with the same named english forum) released some preview information today about TDU2. They claim that there resource is the finnish gaming magazine Gamereactor
. But so far I could not find proof of the posted information. That's why I consider it as rumors right now. In any case, here is the information they are reporting:
The game will have the following features:
- A Passenger Mode
- The roofs of cabriolets automatically close if it starts to rain
- The headlight beams of cars will be automatically activated at night
- Roads will be lit up at night
- Exclusive cars just for clubs
- In races you not only earn money, but also experinces points
- Offroading with AWD vehicles
- High Detailed dashboards
- Possible to watch braking ability and traction (seems you can wear out your brakes in this game), there also will be a G Meter for the Hardcore Mode (TDU's inbuild semi SIM physics mode)
They also say that Eden trys to give you the feeling of actually being a millionare, so we can expect more exclusive life-style as main theme of the game, familar to what TDU1 already shows off. The Factor of a club seem also to become more important in TDU2, which makes me hope that it will actually work across all platforms.
There also some information about the locations... this time it will be O'ahu as well as Ibiza, so you will get two islands. By measurement Ibiza is smaller than Oahu, but it will be refreshing to see.
There are also rumors of a light damage system for the car. I just hope its possible to disable that for all those that don't want their car geting crumbled by random nerd that bump in you at 200 mph just for fun.
And last but not least these rumours claim that TDU2 will be made for PC, XBOX360 and PS3 and that it should be avalible for fall 2010. So if any of this is true, we all know what we want for christmas presents by now.

How long have we waited for Atari to anounce the successor to our favorit island game? The wait time of more then three and a half years is over. TDU2 is offical ancouned and we have now even a offical web site for TDU2.
The game will be developed by Eden Software again. With gives us hope that Eden will use there development experinces on TDU and make a even better and hopeful more bugfree successor on a Massiv Open Online Race game.
We will keep you up to date as soon more offical information about TDU2 arrives. So state tuned!

on TDU Central forum some community member just came across somebody on a russian page who seem to sell a car convert of a 3d model thats not even his own.
Source can be found here: http://hf-garage.ru/forum/31-135-5
We from TDU ADDONS recomment you to NOT buy this car and tell anyone you know to do the same. It is fully illegal that this addon is selled. Because A. the 3d model is not the covnerters one. B. there seem to be no permission given. C. the converter does not have a linces to make money with a BMW branded product. And last but not least D. a such act is truely respectless and should NOT be supported by any means!
