Hi everyone. Following Shuhei’s message yesterday, I’m here give to you an update on DRIVECLUB direct from Evolution Studios.
I’m proud to be leading the extremely talented and hard-working development team here at Evolution. As gamers first and foremost, we are determined to deliver the game we promised to the quality we know you expect.
While the Driveclub team continues to work hard to create an outstanding racing game for you and your friends to enjoy in 2014, we’re taking a moment to thank you all. We wish you well for the holidays, because your support and enthusiasm have kept us fired up all year.
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. 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.
Thanks to everyone that played the DRIVECLUB demo at Gamescom! There were some blindingly quick racers, and even though my team weren’t the fastest overall, we earned the most fame points to win the challenge. So that means that the Gamescom trailer plays out with ”Like A Boss” winning, which I’m obviously very happy about! Also, in case you were wondering, the music track is Be Here Now by Hybrid (The Qemists remix). ;-)
Sid and I are in Germany, tracking down the games to bring you new info. Yesterday, I sat in on a presentation by Col Rodgers, the game director on PS4′s upcoming launch exclusive Driveclub, where he went into detail about the Driveclub’s social features, the PS Plus Edition of the game, and showed us how Remote Play on PS Vita works. Rodgers described Driveclub as the “social network for racing games,” and this is exemplified by the game’s Challenge system.
Your reaction to #DRIVECLUB at the #playstation2013 event in February really got everyone at Evolution Studios fired up! We’re so excited to finally be able to show you more of #DRIVECLUB, I can barely contain my hashtags!
