Rumor: DriveClub will be delayed to Spring 2014
Authored by Williams Pelegrin
With Watch Dogs and The Crew having been delayed until at least early 2014, it seems that DriveClub might also falter from its November 15 release date. According to some rumors and whispers, DriveClub won’t be released until Spring 2014.
The Same Coin cites an anonymous source, with the source saying that the delay is valid, though no reason was given. In addition, Kotaku cited “a person familiar with goings-on at Sony” as confirming the delay. Interestingly, NeoGAF user famousmortimer cited “someone I trust” as saying that, in order to compensate for the delay, Sony is trying to pick a new PlayStation Plus game to replace it, since a free version of DriveClub was planned for PlayStation Plus members. Unfortunately, the user did say that “this person isn’t working on the game and could be wrong,” though the user trusts “that it isn’t wrong.”
Acknowledging the amount of questions asked, DriveClub design director Paul Rustchynsky said the following on Twitter:
Unfortunately guys I don’t have any new information on DRIVECLUB to share. I’ve been out if the office for a week looking after my newborn!
Sorry, guys, but in our opinion, a rumor does not compare to an adorable newborn. We will update this post when we either hear more on this rumor or on the adorable newborn. Whichever comes first.
