    Sony’s Gone ‘Back to the Drawing Board’ to Make Driveclub ‘Great’


    The energy surrounding the upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive racing game Driveclub has largely gone from excitement to skepticism. Driveclub was one of the first PlayStation 4 games revealed, and comes from Sony-owned Evolution Studio, a developer that not only understands the racing genre (it made its name on the MotorStorm franchise), but a developer that undoubtedly had very early access to PlayStation 4.

    Revealed as a launch title, Driveclub was unceremoniously delayed on the eve of PS4’s western release, creating questions as to what’s going on with it. We got a chance to speak to Sony’s Scott Rohde – one of the men in charge of Sony’s family of first party studios – about the status of its phantom racing game.

    “What I will say is that it all comes back to that fundamental principle, and that’s that we want to build great games,” Rohde said. “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],” Rohde continued, “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.”
    When asked about when it’ll launch, Rohde said, “We’re not announcing any specifics on that yet.” When pressed on if it would still come out sometime in 2014, Rohde refused to say, though Sony PR stepped in to say that we’d get more details soon.

    Update from Colin Moriarty - "Questions about the Driveclub article seem to be missing a key sentence: "And that’s what’s going on right now with that game."

    The process has been on ongoing since the delay not starting now.

    And when was GT 7 supposed to be released?!?!

    Happy they want to make the game live up to the full potential but they also had a huge jump on the access to PS4 and we need a racing game other than NFS!!!! Who knows maybe it'll release around the time Drive Club does

    So many of our members here at PS3T wonder why the site has become less active but YOU should know the reason if you are not even willing to participate in the End of the Year Awards. If the site is going to have a rebuild it's going to start with all of you being loyal and active here.

    There was never even a release window announced for Gran Turismo 7, let alone an actual date.

    I was originally pretty excited for Driveclub just to have a decent racing game on the PlayStation 4 but the more it gets delayed, the less I care about the game, especially since I'm a racing sim fan.
