Another next-gen title gets pushed to 2014.
Shuhei Yoshida, president of SCE Worldwide Studios, has announced that the launch of the PlayStation 4-exclusive racer Driveclub has been delayed to early 2014. The title from Evolution Studios was scheduled to launch alongside the next-gen console on Friday, 29th November but those plans have been shelved.
“Driveclub is a really ambitious racing title and the game is looking stunning. The extra time we’re giving the team means the visuals and overall experience are only going to get better. We can assure you that it will be worth the wait,” explained Yoshida-san.
“We understand that the delay is disappointing news, but can assure you that the reason we have made this decision is to ensure that when DRIVECLUB launches, it will realize the next gen racing vision. And PlayStation 4 gamers will have no shortage of titles to play this year. At launch alone, we have Killzone Shadow Fall, Knack, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, FIFA 14, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, to name but a few, as well as the incredible list of Indie games coming to PS4. A broad portfolio of games will be available on PS4 before the end of the year, and with games such as Infamous Second Son, The Order 1886, Destiny, Watch Dogs and now Driveclub coming next year, the strength of the software line-up on PS4 is unprecedented.”
The Driveclub PlayStation Plus Edition will still become part of the Instant Game Collection when it is released next year. In its stead, the indie adventure Contrast will be offered to all PlayStation Plus users during the first month of the PS4′s launch.
With Watch_Dogs being delayed to next year and now Driveclub, it would be fair to say that excitement for Sony’s launch line-up for the PlayStation 4 has certainly been dented. Microsoft must be rubbing their hands in glee!
