Sony Coy On Western DriveClub Release. But Why?

Dealspwn: "The PS4 and Sony really need a racing game. And we should have one on the horizon. But earlier this week, when I asked Sony’s UK PR team for a release date or even a rough release period for DriveClub, they were only able to say, “I'm afraid we don't have any info on the release date for DriveClub at the moment.”"

Just from generally being a gamer and following game news for the last 20 years something smells with this to me. I really hope to be wrong but much like Watch_Dogs this thing has gone so quiet I dont expect to see it for some time. Not a terrible thing given how full the releases are going to get come March. Maybe Sony are saving it to fill out the gap between the March and Sept gluts?

I can understand your doubts (and i know what you mean about having a certain sense about things when you have been gaming/following gaming for a long time), but a game going quiet isn't always a bad thing, it was delayed for polish and that's exactly what's happening.

I also think it's unfair to compare it to us not hearing much about Watchdogs for a while because Ubisoft and Evolution studios are very different, games aren't just cash cows to Evo like they are to Ubi and Driveclub has looked better and better every time it has been shown, while the same cant be said for Watchdogs.

"Maybe Sony are saving it to fill out the gap between the March and Sept gluts?"

I think that's entirely possible.

Yeah, I dont mean the fact its quite is all out bad as in the game is completely screwed but given the way devs start beating the PR drum in the months running up to launch it kind of tells me we are not seeing this in March like a number of rumours have suggested. Just from the feel of the PR at the moment I think its fair to assume this baby is still 4-5+ months away. We can always be very pleasantly surprised!

Ya i hear you there ive been following gaming fot a long time too and you could be very right. On second thought Sony america has been acting very weird for example War Thunder has no excuse to not be in NA even the devs said its all on sony. Just a hunch i think sony is delaying games on purpose so everyone goes out and picks up KZ and knack n such games plus i bet they're trying to spread out the free 2 play games. Nothing wrong with that but i rlly think ps4 needs a racing game and airplane game which would boost sales even more!

Better to announce a date when they are sure, we don't want another situation like GT5 with several delays.

There is risk to loose hype, but if they market it aggressively once they have a release date they can get the hype back.

Right now there isn't much hype anyway and the same goes for Watch Dogs, the hype died completely. It doesn't really make a difference if they make an announcement next week or in 3 weeks.

Gt5 was never delayed, it needs a release date to be delayed

I'm telling you guys. It will launch with the VR headset.

frostypants1521d ago (Edited 1521d ago )

I hope you're right but I think it's a longshot. If the VR headset is released before the end of 2014 (at the earliest), I'd be shocked, and I really doubt they'd hold back this game for that long. On the other hand, if the headset is further along than anyone realizes...
