DriveClub for PlayStation 4 will be releasing on the 8th October this year according to Sony via Shuhei Yoshida’s blog post, making it’s release nearly a year later than originally planned.
“We planned for the game to be ready for early 2014 and are committed to delivering on our ambitious promise of creating a truly innovative, socially connected racing game,” Yoshida wrote.
“The problem with being ambitious is you have to be prepared to accept there will be challenges along the way. What DriveClub offers has not been previously achieved in this category and because of this, the team needed more time to give you the game you’re waiting for.
“Your anticipation for the title since my last update has been a huge source of motivation for the team at Evolution Studios, and I know they are all extremely grateful for your continued support.”
Sony has confirmed the DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition will launch alongside the main game and will be free for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
