Sony: Don't Worry, Driveclub's Progress Is "Spectacular"
Originally, it was supposed to be a PlayStation 4 launch title. Now, after being forced to return to "square one," there's no knowing when the anticipated racer will arrive.
It doesn't help that the game has lost its game director, which has prompted questions as to the game's progress.
However, Sony would like to ease your concerns: A SCEE spokesperson told Videogamer that in fact, the title continues to go "from strength to strength" and that the recent staff changes have not affected the development process:
"We have full confidence that the game will deliver on its PS4 promise to be the first truly socially connected racing title and we are very pleased and excited by the calibre of work from Evolution Studios.
The progress being made on the game is spectacular. So we're looking forward to sharing an update on development, release date, and videos of the game in action in the weeks to come. We thank you for your patience and assure you, it will be worth the wait."
Recently, we learned that Evolution had attempted to implement Sony's new virtual reality tech, dubbed "Project Morpheus," into Driveclub. Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that it has since been scrapped, as the VR at high speeds caused "awkwardness and motion sickness."
However, that VR tech will be on fully display in Slightly Mad Studios' Project Cars, if you're interested.
