Evolution racer to miss PlayStation 4 launch?

PlayStation 4 launch racer Driveclub may have been delayed to 2014.

Earlier today, a report from a website called The Same Coin cited an “anonymous source” in claiming Driveclub had been delayed from its November 15 release date.

While the site’s validity is uncertain, Kotaku is citing “a person familiar with goings-on at Sony” who claims The Same Coin’s report is true.

The website had the chance to ask Sony about the delay at a PlayStation 4 event in San Francisco today, where Driveclub was not present due to a “scheduling conflict.” A Sony rep said the company does not comment on rumors and speculation.

On Twitter, Driveclub design director Paul Rustchynsky said, “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!”

It’s a concerning situation. Just yesterday, Watch Dogs, another next-gen launch title, was also delayed. But as always, don’t take this as fact until officially confirmed.

    Doh! I literally just sent this over to tips. :(((
    Beaten to the punch!

    No, don’t do this to me Sony.

  • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

    So Sony’s tactic is to promise titles for day 1 or close to day 1 then back away quietly from those promises?

    Nice one

      I rather have a game delayed to make sure it’s done right, unlike say with forza were ms is releasing an unfinished game requiring you to download a patch to experience the full game, thus no internet no full game.

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    OMG, I’m getting sick of these delays. First Watch_Dogs, then the Crew and now this, what’s next. Its like developers are trying to push their games back for more sales.

    • CosmicNova

      Dude, it’s just a rumor don’t blow your top off.

    Wasn’t driveclub free for PSplus member and it was getting bundled with the PS4?

    Nintendo delaying games, Ubisoft delaying games, and now Sony joins the team of delaying games lol welcome to “next gen”.

    • Jay

      It’s still just “rumor and speculation”…

    • Elvick

      Not really. It’s basically a “free”mium version of the game, but behind PS+.

  • Bobby Jennings

    Damn, if Sony does this then they truly won’t have any good launch titles at all. I hope Killzone doesn’t get delayed

    • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

      They would still Have Killzone, Knack, indie titles, and free 2 play games available at launch.

      • ( `Д´)ノ)`ν゜)

        Killzone and Knack are both 10 hour games

        • CosmicNova

          So what?

        • kiri25

          Killzone is not a 10hr game due to the multiplayer aspect. If u like playing killzone online (which most gamers prefer the online play with 1st person shooters) then it goes beyond the short story mode and can offer months or years of gameplay.

  • DarthBrian

    As long as I get Knack, I’ll be okay.

  • Sevyne

    You’re tearing me apart Sony!

  • CosmicNova

    Isn’t, Infamous Second Sons a launch title?

    • Azoz


    • Sevyne

      It isn’t, but it is a launch window title. It’ll be out Feb 2014 and I really can’t wait for that one.

  • zakou

    The history repeats xD the PS3 launch titles delayed. Now the PS4 Launch titles delayed, first Watch Dogs and now this, whos next?

  • Keegs79

    If its getting delayed than its a bigger title than I would have expected. I am really upset Watch Dogs is delayed. Its one of the games I was most anticipated to play on the PS4 on day 1.

  • artemisthemp

    So the launch line up is Resogun, Knack and Space Nazi, if this is true.
