ESRB Rating for DriveClub VR surfaces

While a rating has been confirmed, Sony hasn't specified whether DriveClub VR will be a standalone game or a patch for the regular edition.


Although Sony whipped together a prototype version of DriveClub VR last year, many speculated it might be a tech demo engineered to show off the potential of PlayStation VR (formerly Morpheus) as opposed to a product being actively developed for release. Earlier today, IGN uncovered an ESRB rating for the game, indicating that the demo-turned-full-product may be headed to your PS4 sooner rather than later.

DriveClub VR has been rated "E for Everyone." No big surprise there. What's more intriguing is how DriveClub VR came to fruition following the closure of Evolution Studios back in March. Could Evolution have finished the VR version prior to being sent home? Or, did Sony farm out the remainder of the work to another studio?

The existence of DriveClub VR raises other questions, most pertaining to how Sony will position the game. DriveClub VR could materialize as a standalone project, or a patch for the regular version.

Given the time of year, we'll probably have to wait until E3 for more details.
