At one point in time, Driveclub was supposed to be Sony’s killer racing game to help show off both the graphical and social powers of the PlayStation 4. An unfortunate delay later finds it stuck in limbo, and nobody knows how or when it will be released.
PlayStation Software Product Development Head for Sony Worldwide Studios America Scott Rohde has confirmed in an interview with IGN that the game has been sent “back to the drawing board”
“What I will say is that it all comes back to that fundamental principle, and that’s that we want to build great games…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], 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.”
Rhode would not comment on a potential release date.
It seems that Driveclub didn’t exactly turn out how Sony wanted it, and free availability through PlayStation Plus at launch was an extremely generous estimation. Hard to say what the fate of Driveclub will become at this point, but I wouldn’t worry too much. Console launches are often littered with racing games to show off the new hardware because cars are just sexy like that.
If Driveclub is not in your near future, other options will be. Or you might still be playing Gran Turismo 6 on the PlayStation 3.
