Driveclub was due out last year but had to be delayed. It looks like it may take a while for it to come out.
Evolution Studios initially delayed Driveclub to polish up its gameplay. They felt the game wouldn’t be great if it was released back during the PS4’s launch.
Sony’s Scott Rhode gave an update on the game’s during an interview with IGN:
What I will say is that it all comes back to that fundamental principle, and that’s that we want to build great games,” Rohde said. “And we really don’t want to release a game before it’s ready. And sometimes, this happens in the normal course of business, where we think we’re on track to deliver what we think is going to be a great game, and when we get closer, we realize that we’d be doing everyone a disservice if we shipped it before it was ready.”
“So, I think that at PlayStation, perhaps more than at other places, we’re willing to kinda eat that [cost],” Rohde continued, “and go back to the drawing board and make sure the game is great before we ship it. And that’s what’s going on right now with that game
IGN pressed him if we would still see Driveclub released in 2014. Hr reckons it will still be released this year, but didn’t want to provide any further details than that.
With that being said, it sounds like Driveclub will be released in late 2014 as opposed to early 2014 as speculated last year.
