As someone that doesn’t have, and has no plans on getting, a PlayStation 4, I’m getting unnaturally excited for this game. Driveclub, the next-generation racing game from Sony and Evolution Studios, has been on the back burner for some time now. Originally it was set to be a PlayStation 4 launch title, but was subsequently delayed to “early 2014”. For those still hoping for a more definitive release date, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s coming very soon.
According to a recent Facebook post from Driveclub developers, Evolution Studios, more news about Driveclub, including that long-awaited release date will be revealed “in weeks to come.”
“We know you want news about Driveclub. 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,” the developer said.
“Expect an official release date, full game details and new videos in the weeks to come. We’re looking forward to showing you more.”
As exciting as that promise may be, this isn’t the first time both Evolution Studios and Sony have promised updates, new videos, and news that just haven’t amounted to anything. I’m not saying that these updates won’t happen, but I wouldn’t hold your breath. With the recent news that Sony was going back to the drawing board with Driveclub, if a release date does rear its head, it may not be for a good few months.
