The launch date of DriveClub has been anticapted for a while ever since it was delayed just before the PS4 released, with the game having to be replaced on Plus by Contrast. Ever since that delay there have been rumours of when DriveClub would park itself on the PS4, with the Japanese launch on February 22nd being touted as the date. However that was denied by SCEJA with game being set to a pending status. Now a release date in summer could happen could be close to being confirmed after Fergal Gara, Sony’s UK Managing Director, talking about upcoming PS4 games at this morning’s PS Vita Slim reveal.
“Things kick off again in a short few weeks with the launch of infamous Second Son, another great first party title starting to push the boundaries of what PS4 can do. We have Driveclub, again coming from our first party studios, and we have The Order 1886 coming later in the year. So that’s just a flavour of what our own studios are bringing out this year.”
A summer release does match the rumour of a June release date that was given by OPM Italy’s Facebook page. The Order 1886 soon following at some point in Autumn matches the statements made on Twitter by Sony Santa Monica and Ready At Dawn bosses talked about being excited about seeing the results in Fall.
