Folks playing through DriveClub on PlayStation 4 may have run into a few notable issues with the game's online play. In fact, the server issues on Evolution's racer are proving to be so much trouble that the PlayStation Plus version of the game is now undergoing a delay, while the developer prepares some fixes.

"In order to help all DriveClub players who have the game already, we're temporarily holding back the PS Plus Edition and the My DriveClub app to ease the load and traffic to the servers," director Paul Rustchynsky said on Facebook (via CVG). "This should give players a better chance of connecting to the game servers and, once the servers are operating well, we'll be sure to let you know when the PS Plus Edition and My DriveClub app will be available to download. To our PS Plus fans, we're sorry you're having to wait longer to play, but we want to ensure that when you come on board, you get the best experience possible. Rest assured, if you've pre-ordered the full game upgrade from the PS Plus Edition, you will still get the full version of DriveClub digitally, and if you can't get online you'll be able to get started offline like everybody else with single player mode as you start your DriveClub tour."

The PS Plus version of DriveClub was expected to release alongside the retail version of the game. It is set to include 11 tracks along the India area with 10 playable cars.
