Atari has announced that it will be publishing Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends, which was initially announced by BigBen Interactive last November. The publisher confirmed that the game is being worked on by Need for Speed: Shift developer Slightly Mad Studios. The game will also be distributed by both BigBen Interactive and Rombax Games, with Ferrari license owner Avalance involved in development as well.

The racer, which was initially as simply Test Drive: Ferrari, will be released for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The release date was reportedly late March 2012, but Atari's announcement did not include any date, so it is unknown whether it will remain the same.
