Sony has confirmed previous reports that Evolution Studios' racer Driveclub has been delayed.

"SCE Worldwide Studios and the team at Evolution Studios have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Driveclub and Driveclub PlayStation Plus Edition until early 2014," wrote Sony worldwide studios president Shuhei Yoshida.

"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."

A version of the game, which was due to be released alongside the PlayStation 4 on November 15, was also to be included as a free download for PlayStation Plus members. Instead, Sony will offer Contrast as an alternative, and confirmed that the PlayStation Plus edition of Driveclub will follow in 2014.

"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," said Yoshida.

"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, Battlefield 4, to name but a few, as well as the incredible list of Indie games coming to PS4."

"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."

Earlier this week Ubisoft confirmed that its highly-anticipated next-gen launch title Watch Dogs had also been delayed into 2014.

They have never launched a Halo game in December. It will launch between late September and early November.

The Order is made by the PSP God of War team, not the PS2/3 team.

I don't see why more people aren't focusing on Knack, that looks superb. I wish it was a new Nintendo IP.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Banjo belongs to Rareware who is owned by Microsoft, so no chance of that game coming to a PS4. No I wasn't being sarcastic I was being quite genuine. If I was a getting a PS4, I'd get Knack and the Order 1886, both of those games have really intriqued my interest.

Meanwhile, the Xbone has most of its features unavailable at launch and delayed its meagre "launch" in half its Tier 1 countries. Whoops!

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >>The only time I haven't been somewhat disappointed with launch titles was the N64+SM64. That game was something special. Otherwise, I'm happy to play with menus and mess around with settings, look at the box and so on until games release. Saying that, I think this will be the first gen I don't buy a launch console.

Wasn't sold on the Wii U at launch either. But this - << LINK REMOVED >> looks exciting, to me.

<< LINK REMOVED >>Yes but it still captured my interest. I am very fond of steampunk and Victorian England, so the game was an instant "wow, I'm paying attention to this", but I doubt I'll ever play it as I probably won't ever purchase a PS4 due to the fact I own a Wii U and a 2DS.

<< LINK REMOVED >> People are entitled to get the console of their choice, you'll never see me trying to persuade people against purchasing a new console. I do feel a lot of people are rushing out to buy these new consoles based solely on the hype surrounding them and the specifications and I do think those said people may find themselves either pleasantly surprised or bitterly disappointed (initally).

@19James89 @danabo Some of us like the shiny new hardware. I like the new console smell, probably shouldn't have mentioned that, but it's not just about games. Wii U is probably the way to go this holiday season, if you don't already own one.


EDIT: It irks me that every time I mention "one" I think xbox. Maybe it wasn't such a bad choice of name.
