PS4-exclusive Driveclub to reveal release date, full game details, new videos in coming weeks

We’ll see more of Driveclub at E3 if not sooner.

Developer Evolution Studios said that we can expect an official release date, full game details, and new videos for the PlayStation 4’s exclusive racing game Driveclub in “the weeks to come.”

“We are going to bring you up to speed with a full Driveclub update soon, because we are immensely proud of how the game is developing and we’re confident you’ll see why when we show you more,” Evolution Studios said in a post to the game’s Facebook page.

With E3 2014 only six weeks away, it’s safe to assume Evolution Studios will have something prepared for the show. In response to a question from a fan, it also said that we can “expect more info in the weeks up to E3.”

Last month, Sony said that Driveclub was making "spectacular progress" despite losing its game director and layoffs at Evolution Studios.

"We have full confidence that the game will deliver on its PS4 promise to be the first truly socially connected racing title and we are very pleased and excited by the calibre of work from Evolution Studios," a Sony representative said.

This article is not news. Since when has it been news to announce that someone is going to announce some news in future. The game is doomed to fail anyway. Racers demand split second reactions to what is happening onscreen. Making the game social means you have multiplayer stats flashing up on screen as you drive. That's like using a mobile phone when driving. You crash while reading the text and if you don't read the stats, the social goes out the window. Flawed vision. The designer is a fool.

They're just scared because the guys over at Slightly Mad have been clowning their game and they want to make improvements to it but it won't help.

I Wonder if : - The game was delayed because it was crap, and now they took the time to make it right, making it an average game

Or - The game was hardly anything special, but now they got it right and it's exceptionnal

Or - Game was complete garbage, still is, but they got to release it so here we are.

Sure be at E3214  Driverclub but it wont sell better because GT7 will do better.

 How can a launch title which is a driving game be delayed this much?

Personally, I think the game will bomb and that will be the end of Evolution Studios I think.

I don't want to think how much money has been pumped into this game and if it breaks even, I'll be surprised.

The more this delay goes on for the more interest I think I'll lose.. They should have taken the Ubisoft or Rockstar and just dropped bread crumbs along the way to make us realise this game still existed.. Hopefully this reveal will be able to amend the broken shards of hype

If it's only online based, that would be sad. This title looks like a monster and I just hope there will b single campaigns to sugarcoat it. I really need a good racing game now, Gran turismo needs to step up a little more

Just hurry up darn it!!!

For me - bone really has no games and it's not just trash talking. I'm not into racing and with bone having nothing but forza, it has nothing for me.

Not excited for drive club either - might play it if it's free with PSN+ as was promised

I had to laugh at idiots talking about the photo being PS2 quality or crappy. Click on the image then find the individual polygons if you can on the cars, I will wait. Got to love biased rubbish talk but sometimes it's better to get them to put their money where their mouth is. Go on and have a nice long look at the image ok, find a PS2 that could pull that off at that colorspace representation.  The smoothing and high poly count is nuts as then the reflections, plus also it has day/night transitions...looks like it will look pretty but how does it play and what is it's point?

Eh, racing games. I'm excited to see The Order 1886 and Shadow of the Beast. And hoping Guerrilla Games' new IP is indeed an open world rpg :). Also stoked to see some actual The Witcher 3 gameplay.

There's nothing good coming out for ps4... I'm thinking of selling it and upgrading my pc

I feel like this game will get a 7.0. Just saying, not that it really matters too much.

Aaaand you're just butthurt because the guys over at Sucker Punch clowned Titanfail into 3rd place the day Infamous was released lol.

Excellent prediction there, buddy lol bill gates would be proud ;-)

@fredyellowone  The game was good when I played it at E3 last year, but it wasn't anything special so I'm thinking your second option, although who knows if they got it right...might just have to release it without whatever feature they are teasing but not telling people about.

@fredyellowone i think the game was good, but not as good as the hype, and they went back and made it better. please don't complain when a company decides to take the time to make a better product...i have plenty of time!

@ecurl143 from what i've seen, it looks like a great racing game.

with all the extra work and touch ups to the game since the last game play demo...should be really good.

@SavageEvil  It definitely looks good but it's also pretty photoshopped, like all screenshots.

@wa128  And you think there would be good games for the PC? Most games are multi-platform anyways, just sometimes pc versions get delayed

Than why you buy it in the first place? The ps4 had more game than xbox one!!! You should the check upcoming game for it come a new Rpg game like Bound of flame!!!

@wa128  Not a bad idea. Sony won't have anything until Uncharted but even that isn't that good either.

@NTM23  it surely has to beat forza. they've invested so much time into it. If it doesn't top Forza it will be disappointing.

@sampson3121 @playstationzone

Because of two reasons. Firstly, social while driving is a fail. You crash reading the pop-up multiplayer stats when you should be driving. Secondly, proven history. GT has always delivered the goods and improved, so no reason to expect any difference unless they go social as well.

@tommynj @wa128  until sony actually released the games you just mentioned then anything you said about it are pure speculation. By the way, I don't own PS4 and Xbox one as I'm not the type who buys they system at launch. I'm still enjoying PS3, 3ds, and wii u (don't own a wii so I'm using it to play wii games as well). 


finally, it's good and bad depending on who is playing the games.
