    CONFIRMED -ps4 launch title driveclub delayed until 2014

    *inb4 The Sith Post's it*

    http://www.thesamecoin.co.uk/2013/10/16/rumour-ps4-launch-title-driveclub-delayed-2014/


    Although we at TSC don’t usually do news pieces, after yesterdays announcement about Watch Dog’s & The Crew slipping into 2014, this rumour was too much not to post.
    *Treat this as 100% rumour for now, hopefully it will turn out to be false*
    We’ve had word from an anonymous source that Sony’s upcoming PS4 launch title Driveclub is delayed until spring 2014. While no reason for the delay was given it has been reported previously that the game had looked a little unfinished when shown at various events this year.

    With a little under a month before the PS4′s US release this isn’t the best of news, especially in the light of Ubisoft’s news that the highly anticipated launch title watch Dog’s won’t be hitting until sometime next year. It’s also a hit to the platforms hugely popular PS+ service as an albeit stripped down version of Driveclub was due to be available for PS+ subscribers free at launch.
    It could also be another blow to retailers who are already having to scramble to adjust preorder bundles of the PS4 in light of yesterdays news.

    As stated this is just a rumour at present,expect this piece to self destruct if it turns out to be rubbish but we’ll be sure to update as we learn more. I have reached out to both Evolution Studios and Sony for comment but as yet neither has chosen to reply

    UPDATE: Sony has confirmed the delay of PS4 launch title Driveclub delay until "early 2014" and announced details of new offers for PlayStation Plus subscribers who previously would have been able to play a free version of the game.Indie title Contrast will now be offered for free at launch for Plus members, and Sony will grant an "open weekend" trial of Killzone Shadow Fall's multiplayer on 28th-29th December.
    In a lengthy statement posted to both the US and EU PlayStation blogs, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida explained that Driveclub's postponement was due to the game simply needing more time.
    "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,"Yoshida said. "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.
    "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. If you're not aware of Contrast, it will whisk you away to a surreal vaudevillian, film-noir inspired reality full of performance, intrigue, shadow-play and drama. I'm sure you'll agree that it is unlike anything you will have played before. We're also offering members access to an exclusive 'Open Weekend' trial of Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer on December 28-29.
    "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 realise 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 4: Black Flag, FIFA 14, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Battlefield 4 to name but a few, as well as the incredible list of indie games coming to PS4.
    "A broad portfolio of games will be available on PS4 before the end of the year, and with games such as inFamous Second Son, The Order 1886, Destiny, Watch Dogs and now Driveclub coming next year, the strength of the software line-up on PS4 is unprecedented.
    "Driveclub is a really ambitious racing title and the game is looking stunning. 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."

    Now if this is delayed I'll genuinely be annoyed. I wasn't all that fussed about Watch Dogs being delayed but I'm looking forward to DriveClub.

    LOL, not even a reference to where this Rumor is coming from. Sounds like it's a Rumor they created themselves to create traffic.

    thesixthaxis -

    UPDATE: Despite initially dismissing this rumour, there has been more fuel added to the fire over on NeoGAF, with reliable poster famousmortimer saying that he’s heard the same from someone he trusts, and that he’s aware that he’ll get banned if he’s wrong, so is very confident in the claims.If true, Sony are likely looking for another game to replace DriveClub in the first month of PS+, but we could see an official announcement – or a debunking – tomorrow at the earliest.Furthermore, DriveClub’s design director Paul Rustchynsky can’t comment on the matter either, as his official comment on twitter is that he’s been out of office looking after his newborn baby.

    If they focused efforts onto the PS+ edition then at least those that did order the game can wait with piece in mind while still waiting for the game.

    Welll.....

    Again, another reason why I wont be looking at a next gen purchase for some time.

    But...

    "If" this is true, then that puts Sony's already weaker launch line up in a really bad place. Shadowfall has a hell of a lot riding on it's shoulders now.
    Couple together The Crew being delayed and you have a considerably weaker line up for car lovers.

    I really cant believe Sony would delay this title though.

    Same here. I wonder if there are issues with the PS4 itself. There have been rumors that the only playable game at events was knack and the others were running on PCs. I find that odd because the launch date is so close.

    Dev environment is a PC, its windows 7 with visual studio. So that isnt anything to be shocked about.
    The better question would be is these PC's running the correct APU.

    Heard that was debunked just like the X1 games running on PDCs rumor.

    Meh I'd rather have a more polished game than see it just pushed out. Forza 5 seems more like Forza 4.5 in order to rush it out for launch. Turn 10 didnt even add day/night cycles which is unacceptable for a next gen sim racer.

    Oh its not debunked, PS4 SDKS's are PC's. Its just not all that interesting, in development games running in development environment shouldn't shock anyone.

    As for Forza, it is in a sense, but then again, it is a lot to port the old code across without loosing out on what makes Forza, forza. Still a lot of work involved, and in some sense, more work than making a completely new thing for scratch.

    Still, if they announce Forza Horizon 2 anytime soon and I may be very interested.

    Please say it ain't so! Really like how it's shaping up, but I guess, much like Watch Dogs, these delays can be a blessing in disguise.
