Driveclub Release Date Revealed

As has been promised yesterday, Sony has revealed the official release date for its delayed racing game. Driveclub will be available on PS4 from October 7 in North America, October 8 in Europe and October 10 in the UK. The game will release nearly a year after its initial release date back in November.

Back in March PlayStation Worldwide Studios executive Scott Rhode stated that Sony has “gone back to the drawing board” with the game in order to make the racer the best they can.

“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,” he added. “And that’s what’s going on right now with that game.”

The game’s developer, Evolution Studios, has undergone layoffs just last month further adding speculation as to what went exactly wrong with the game. The game director, Carl Rodgers, left the studio back in February and was replaced by Paul Rustchynsky, who served as game director on Motorsorm RC.
