Sony and Evolution Studios announced today that Driveclub and the Driveclub PlayStation Plus Edition have been delayed until early 2014. Shuhei Yoshida, President, SCE Worldwide Studios, said: "DRIVECLUB will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game, but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision — and I’m fully confident the game will surpass your expectations."
He also gave an update on PlayStation Plus member's Instant Game Collection for the launch of PlayStation 4. "To be clear, DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition will still be part of the Instant Game Collection when it is released. For the PS4 launch, in addition to Resogun, I’m pleased to announce that Contrast, the highly anticipated game from Compulsion Games will also be available to PlayStation Plus members for free as part of Instant Game Collection. If you’re not aware of Contrast, it will whisk you away to a surreal vaudevillian, film-noir inspired reality full of performance, intrigue, shadow-play and drama. Please check out the trailer below. I’m sure you’ll agree that it is unlike anything you will have played before... We’re also offering members access to an exclusive “Open Weekend” trial of Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer on December 28-29."
The PlayStation 4 will launch in North America on November 15 and in Europe on November 29.
