Sony confirms Driveclub delay

Evolution Studios' launch title now due "early 2014"

Sony has confirmed rumoured news that Evolution Studios' Driveclub, previously a PS4 launch title, has been delayed until early 2014.

A post on the PlayStation blog explained the move, citing a need to allow the team "more time in order to deliver on their vision".

"This decision also affects PlayStation Plus members' Instant Game Collection for launch," the post continues. "To be clear, Driveclub PlayStation Plus Edition will still be part of the Instant Game Collection when it is released.

"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 realize 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 IV Black Flag, FIFA 14, Call of Duty: Ghosts, 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 the second major next-gen release to be delayed this week, with Ubisoft pushing Watch Dogs back to 2014 for more polish, too.
