‘Driveclub’ delayed to early 2014

Drive Club PS4 Evolution

In a week of delays for Ubisoft’s Watch_Dogs and The Crew, we have another unforunate delay and it’s a Sony exclusive this time. As reported yesterday, Sony has confirmed that racing game Driveclub has been delayed.

President, SCE Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida confirmed the news in a blog post, reasons stating that it just needs a little more development time like Watch_Dogs. If you’re worried that it won’t be a PS+ title shouldn’t since it’ll still be coming to PS+ as part of the Instant Game Collection so when it’s out and you have PS+, you’ll get it.

In lieu of the unfortunate news, Yoshida said there’ll be two games at launch for PS4′s PS+ members with Housemarquee’s Resogun already announced but Compulsion Games’ Contrast will also be joining it as your PS+ freebies. Contrast was recently announced for PC for November 15, same day as the PS4 so that’s interesting.

There’ll also be a exclusive “Open Weekend” trial of Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer on December 28-29 in case you haven’t tried it out.

Kind of bummer news but with the next-generation looming, more development time will be needed for these titles. As long as they’re good and ready for release, that’s the most important thing than crunching for launch.

Coming off from sites like XBLAFans, GameJudgment and TouchArcade, I'm looking to further extend my reach with the multiplatform news. I love all sorts of games from 2d side-scrollers to action/adventures set in fantasies or gothic nature like Castlevania. My 3 favourite games ever are Viewtiful Joe, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Chrono Trigger.
