DriveClub PlayStation Plus edition postponed indefinitely

Though DriveClub is seeing gradual improvements to its server issues, the PlayStation Plus version is nowhere near ready for release.


DriveClub's release on PlayStation 4 earlier this month has been nothing short of ugly. It's been plagued by numerous server issues, so much so that the promised PlayStation Plus version still has yet to see the light of day. In fact, don't expect that version to leave the garage anytime soon. Nearly a month after it was set to release, Sony has officially delayed the PlayStation Plus version of DriveClub indefinitely.

"We have been listening to your feedback and realize that patience understandably is running out," SCE Worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida said on Facebook (via Polygon). "Evo is working around the clock to close the gap, and we have deployed additional engineering resources to help resolve the remaining issues as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the time frames required to roll out the fully connected experience will be longer than anticipated and we do not have an exact time frame for when they will be resolved."

Evolution had previously stated that DriveClub's online issues have seen steady improvement, but the studio had remained quiet about the PlayStation Plus version. This free version of DriveClub was expected to release alongside the game as part of an incentive to help sell the full version.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
