Driveclub is missing from the PlayStation 4 launch that it was originally supposed to bolster. We knew of the delay, of course, but there’s a distinct lack of quality track racers on Sony’s machine and, when the competition has the very enjoyable Forza Motorsport 5 to show off, it does feel a little conspicuous in its absence.
If a game needs a bit more work to be ready then we’re in total support of that. As tough as a delay can be for eager fans, Driveclub had felt a little bit like it could benefit from a touch more polish when we’d seen it at preview events like E3. It’s best that the team has the time they need to get it just right.
Up until now, we’ve only had a tentative “spring” release window for the community-embracing racer but Sony has released a list of Japanese launch titles (as spotted on GAF) and Driveclub crops up there so we can reasonably assume a release no later than February 22nd here in the west.
So that’ll be nice, won’t it?
