SCE Worldwide Studios and the team at Evolution Studios have made the difficult decision to delay the release ofDRIVECLUB and DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition until early 2014. DRIVECLUB will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game, but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision — and I’m fully confident the game will surpass your expectations.

This decision also affects PlayStation Plus members’ Instant Game Collection for launch. To be clear, DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition will still be part of the Instant Game Collection when it is released. For the PS4 launch, in addition to Resogun, I’m pleased to announce that Contrast, the highly anticipated game from Compulsion Games will also be available to PlayStation Plus members for free as part of Instant Game Collection. If you’re not aware of Contrast, it will whisk you away to a surreal vaudevillian, film-noir inspired reality full of performance, intrigue, shadow-play and drama. Please check out the trailer below. I’m sure you’ll agree that it is unlike anything you will have played before.

We’re also offering members access to an exclusive “Open Weekend” trial of Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer on December 28-29.

We understand that the delay is disappointing news, but can assure you that the reason we have made this decision is to ensure that when DRIVECLUB launches, it will realize the next-gen racing vision. And PlayStation 4 gamers will have no shortage of titles to play this year. At launch alone, we have Killzone Shadow Fall, Knack, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, FIFA 14, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Battlefield 4 to name but a few, as well as the incredible list of indie games coming to PS4. A broad portfolio of games will be available on PS4 before the end of the year, and with games such as inFAMOUS Second Son, The Order 1886, Destiny, Watch Dogs and now DRIVECLUB coming next year, the strength of the software line-up on PS4 is unprecedented.

DRIVECLUB is a really ambitious racing title and the game is looking stunning. The extra time we’re giving the team means the visuals and overall experience are only going to get better. We can assure you that it will be worth the wait.

Well, Contrast was already on my wishlist. The art style of the game is just amazing.

The best part about the delay is, we will still get the Plus portion of Driveclub. Win Win for us.

Disappointed as I wanted a racing game to play on my ps4, but I guess ill be playing GT6 on ps3 while I wait.

Im still happy with the ps4 line up as it stands.

Well, that's too bad. There's another reason I'll be waiting for 2014 to get the PS4 I guess.

It kind of seems no one is really bummed out about this and that's me included. I don't know how good Driveclub will be but generally I don't play racing games. Plus we get Contrast instead and even though I knew literally nothing about this game it looks like something I'd be into so It's turned out pretty well for me.

Im actually happy at this news since I dont like racing games except Mario Kart, so Contrast is a big welcome in my list

I'm happy that DC got delayed. I hope that the team can provide an even better racing game by the time it's released. I will really appreciate a good racer early next gen. Need For Speed looks awesome, but the online community for those games always dies pretty fast.

It makes me sad because I want to play a next gen racing game really bad. But there's always NFS and I actually thought Contrast looked pretty amazing.
