Sony on 'Driveclub' delay: 'No point in it coming out and half doing that job'

Among the many, many titles that have been delayed over the last three months is Driveclub, and like the rest of the games that were pushed back, it simply wasn't ready for launch last November.

While delays are always tough to endure for fans, they ultimately end up benefiting them the most. Recently, Sony's Fergal Gara talked about the delay, why the company made the decision to push it back and their remaining hopes for Driveclub. (Driveclub, PS4, Sony)

Exactly, why release a game half finished just to have it in time for launch?
Can't wait to play a real next gen driving game

Not as bad as the WatchDogs delay....that game was announced way before DriveClub and that might not be released untill May or June.

No delay is bad, not even the Watch Dogs one. I'm glad when developers are getting the time they need to finish their creative vision and polish their game.

@above replies

I didn't say a delay is bad. I'm very happy they delayed it because it looks better every time we see it. What I am saying is I'm sure Sony knew this game needed more time from the beginning and they shouldn't have ever announced it as a launch title. It's just torture waiting on this amazing game! Lol

... pretty certain they wouldn't have announced it as a launch title if they thought it was going to be delayed. Not sure what makes you think they KNEW it would have to be released late.
stuna1  +   739d ago
The game would still be considered to be launching within the launch window, which is 6 to 9 months of the consoles release.
amiga-man  +   739d ago
I'm eagerly awaiting this game, as disappointed as I was hearing about it's delay I really am pleased to know the game will be the finished article when it is released,

a few more months could make all the difference from it being an ok game to it being a great game, I want the great version so am happy to wait.

The game was probably ready at 30 fps, however with all the talk going around lately and Evolution hoping for 60 fps both Sony & Evolution decided to delay it.

If they can achieve 60 fps and still looking the way it does it is win win for everyone.
DialgaMarine  +   739d ago
Delay sounds like a much better plan than releasing a title with content than it's predecessor, at full price no less, and then expecting people to spend boatloads more money on the rest of the content down the road via DLC.
Army_of_Darkness  +   739d ago
I am soooooo glad they delayed drive club because it's starting to look much more promising and especially better looking considering my disappointment when I first saw the first batch of gameplay...
And knowing Sony and evolution studios with the 1080p @60fps momentum, I'm expecting drive club to be exactly just that when it finally releases.
GameSpawn  +   739d ago
Delays of a few months are not bad. (Drive Club / Watch Dogs)

Delays of a few years ARE bad. (Final Fantasy VS XIII aka Whatever the hell Square is going to call it next)

When a game gets teased and its possible release pushed back and back and back more it risks becoming Vaporware, a la Duke Nukem Forever (which FINALLY got pulled from the Vaporware category only to end up in the Shovelware one).

Fact of the matter is a developer shouldn't set a damn date unless they are 100% on hitting that exact date or 95% that they can land within a month of it. If neither of these are the case, then don't even mention the damn game much less a date, because you'll overfill the hype balloon and it'll pop long before the game even hits.

Why is The_Infected getting so many disagrees for making a reasonable statement? DriveClub was to be a launch title... a PS+ launch title. It's been months since the delay was announced, there should be a release date by now. It makes me question the overall initial quality of the game... how are you gonna get months of time after having a firm release date, and still not have a real launch window? I think someone screwed the pooch at Evolution.
iceman06  +   739d ago
Even the best "finished" games could always be made better with time and polish. I believe that a couple of things were happening. Firstly, they were rushing to meet a deadline and were probably ready to meet it...but at what cost? It's a brand new IP that needs to shine in order to flourish. Plus, they were probably still coming to grips with the tools that the PS4 has to offer. They have spoken many times about learning a new or better way to do things (during this delay). So, in the end, Sony anticipated it to be a launch title but when there was a hint that it could be improved by some more dev time, Sony was on board. Remember, Sony still has the "can't afford to screw up anything" mentality that came from the troubles with the PS3. This is all good simply because a better game means better reception and ultimately a better chance at success.

Have you heard the game the last guardian?
thunderbear  +   739d ago
I partly agree with The_Infected on this one. If the rumors are true and the game isn't coming out until June, they should have known months before release that it wasn't on target with the quality they were aiming for. Driveclub's delay (and Watch Dogs) has really caused a drought and I'm annoyed that I have to wait until late march to get another true next-gen game.

I won't get an XB1 for Titanfall, I'll get it on PC, and for the fanboys out there I do feel that Sony has given MS a window here to sell a lot of consoles by having this drought of games.

I thought I'd be playing Driveclub in January, Infamous in February and the first third party next-gen games in March.
UltimateMaster  +   739d ago
Well, it was finished.
But then they decided to make it twice as big. ;)

On a serious note, they need to bring that game out soon. I'm guessing E3? I don't know.
combatcash  +   739d ago
I agree with The_Infected, why announce it if they know they're going to delay it. This isn't sony's first rodeo and I suppose we should expect this from them since they do this frequently but I'm not a fan of delays.

It would be nice if they at least gave us a demo to get a taste of the game.
Dee_91  +   739d ago
I dont know.. I am kind of mixed on this one.A part of me wish that they would have announced less demanding games that would definitely stick to its release date, then announce those games that have been delayed when they where well into development. But then again I understand that this is a result of making such detailed games.Longer waits.I hope the wait will be worth it... I mean with all the delayed games not just DC.

"what it wants to do with social features and really innovating in the driving genre"

This is one of the top reasons I'm so interested in DriveClub, the whole club aspect of it. It's basically having clans in a driving game and I haven't played any racing game like that before. It sounds great and I'm glad they didn't come out half delivering on that job because it would be a shame to try something new only to find that they half-assed the idea/concept.

Seems like they're waiting for something like a PS4 update or something to do with PSN or Sonys servers. They want to social integration to be perfect and the PS4 might not be ready yet.
The game is already visually stunning so it has to be something else.

I agree. It applies to all companies really. If you know a game is behind then don't say it's going to come out just so people will want your console more. I personally like the devs who give updates as to where the project is at it's current state and where it's future is heading.

Im a long time Forza fan, but i'd rather wait for Driveclub. Im not a fan of paying for downgraded half-games filled with MT's. Forza 5 was a complete step backwards compared to Forza 4.

Every time Driveclub has been shown, it's looked better than before. Great to see the devs have this kind of attitude when it comes to games. I'd much rather give my support and money to devs who are willing/brave enough to delay their games to make them better and not give in to launch dates or external pressure to release.

I'm a Forza fanatic and have an XBOX ONE in my home and I won't play Forza 5 until I can get a copy for $30 dollars or less. Since it's literally half the game Forza 4 was / is.

This article about delays is something I admire about Sony and I think is one of my biggest gripes with MS. I have had a blast on MS hardware over the past decade plus but MS is all about the calendar and Sony is about given us the best they can regardless of what it's released.

Forza, Ryse and Killer Instinct (all of which I have played except F5) are all perfect examples of this. KI isn't even close to being a full game. It doesn't even have as many characters as that the original did 20 YEARS AGO. It barely has enough content to call it as XBLA game. Ryse, although it's one beautiful game, has some serious performance issues (frame rates, camera, stuttering, simplistic combat engine that barely evolves other than more dramatic executions you purchase with XP) and Forza 5, like I already mentioned, is less than half the game (content wise) that Forza 4 was / is.

ALL of those titles would've been so much better given more time, but NO, MS is all about numbers. They don't seem to care as much about the quality of their products. Just look at our launch line up. Those not wearing blinders and look at it honestly see a bunch of games that needed more time in development.

On topic:
I can't wait for Drive Club. It's looks staggering. The best part is most likely my existing PS3 compatible wheel (Thrustmaster T500) will work with this title. This is one area I wish Sony would start talking about. What wheels, sticks and other perps will work on the PS4 with fighting and racing games.

I am also looking forward to Sony's 1.6 update so more headsets will be compatible with the PS4.

Bottom line.
Sony gets it.
MS doesn't

Forza 4 destroys Gran Turismo 5!
This is coming from a Sony Pony and a GT5 signature edition purchaser.

Gran Turismo 5 was such a chore and no fun at all...apart from the Red Bull and F40.

Forza 4 it is fun to drive especially with clutch activated and no assists...which is the way I always drive my simulators.

Forza 5 is one reason why I want an xbone...but won't be getting one until they revise the sku to accept a HDD of my choosing.

I'm looking forward to driveclub but would of preferred a racing simulator...driveclub will do until ProjectCARS hits retail shelves.
truefan1  +   739d ago
This is classic, people prefer a game they haven't played over another game they haven't played. Forza 5 was awesome, the reason Driveclub wasn't released was because it was getting owned in comparison to Forza. Better believe it was finished, but they knew they needed to go back to the drawing board to try to make it better than Forza. They are going to take about 6 extra months to try to make the game better, only to get slaughtered by Project Cars.

no doubt forza is a great series and forza 4 was the best. Forza 5 is a demo for now and with season pass adding more content we will get a complete game Via GOTY or complete edition

how can Turn-10 release a game with less tracks,less cars just about less everything and call it the next gen racer. I applaud sony for giving Drive Club more time because i think DC will be the true next gen racer
DigitalRaptor  +   738d ago
@ truefan1

Revealing your weaknesses yet again.

Forza 5 was released because it served Microsoft better to release it on Nov 22nd. It didn't serve the game better in any conceivable respect. The same can be said for Ryse and it can be said for Killer Instinct, because if any of these games released by themselves this year outside of the launch day buzz, critics would have a clearer mind to analyse these games for what they truly offer as next-gen experiences.

Simply put, Sony cares a great deal more about Quality Control than Microsoft does. They care more about what they're giving the consumer for their $60. And when DriveClub comes out better for its delay and as an actual next-generation driving game, we'll all be happier for knowing Sony weren't pandering to their own selfish desires. Instead, they are allowing their own internal developers time to bring experiences worth the next-generation label.

What Microsoft did, was make third-party contracts for developers to launch on Nov 22nd regardless of the quality.

Do you even know why people are excited for DriveClub? I've explained logically to you before, but your refuse to acknowledge facts and common-sense logic.

First you were calling out DriveClub for its potential for success, saying it was going to bomb when 'Project Cars' comes out. Now it's about the quality of the game, which we all know isn't the part that's suffering.

Let me know when Forza 5 achieves next-generation status on next-gen hardware, because its performance from a value and a technical standpoint are ridiculous and disappointing to say the least.

I'm looking forward to Cars, but let me know when it manages to get the most out of next-generation hardware, when it's focussing on so many other significantly less powerful platforms?

Yea games get delayed. It's not often, however, that a game gets delayed out of nowhere just a month before release. That's what he meant. They should have known where it was heading before then. The same thing happened with GTA. Got delayed damn near a year out the blue, after a release date had already been set, and was coming up soon. We've seen time and time again where a game will be given a date by a publisher, just to give it a date. And a delay doesn't automatically mean a better game if the game just isn't good regardless. Then we waited for nothing lol. Hopefully Driveclub lives up to its looks.

I'm seeing this as becoming more common in the video game industry of games either releasing unfinished and broken or having their release date cancelled and delayed for further "polish".

Of course when they announced the date it would have been planned to be released at launch. But undoubtedly things come up during development, deadlines aren't met, etc. which causes release projections to shift.

Sony would want to release it at launch. It would have been a blow having to delay their premiere PS Plus title and racing game. But sometimes things like delays can't be avoided.

So what do you guys think about this trolling butt hurt Xbox fan talking crap about drive club. here's what he said Funballons
• an hour ago

Of course it was delayed, every single PREVIEW of the game was horrible, stating how poorly the cars handled, how bad the particle effects looked, the stuttering and lag through the game/horrid framerate, stale boring gameplay, poor crashes/car damage, etc... Don't take my word for it, go read some previews and see for yourself, this game was delayed for good reason, it was and still is on track for failure. Powerful ps3.5 can't even handle a racing sim lol all the while forza runs and looks perfect at 1080 60fps, oh bbbb but but the crowds, the crowds look like cutouts! Lol sony ponies, that's all u can say about the game, shows how desperate u are.

PS3.5 so powerful it can't run a racing sim, it can't run a last gen port of tomb raider at 60fps like they bragged about lol nope it runs at 45-50fps and even then still stutters and lags hah, infamous SS looks like a last gen game with new particle effects trying to hide the same stale repetitive gameplay and it doesn't even have multiplayer lol, I could go on and on but I don't want to make u sony ponies cry too much haha. U already cry about how xbox one is selling consoles almost as much as u and gaining every week, with a less powerful and more expensive console, hah makes u ponies nervous and mad, lol. When titanfall and other xbox one exclusives roll out, it will sell even better and yup u all will cry and rage more, jealous as always and predictable as the sun rising every morn.

I don't reply to trolls anymore as u aren't even in e same league and cannot hold a real debate, and I feel sorry for u, and I feel bad making fools of u with every reply I make, so until u are able to actually debate, u all are on ignore and no more replies for u. Feel free to post ur replies anyway, I love watching u rage and make fools of yourselves lol.

'No point in it coming out and half doing that job'

What job? Being the best and last racing game EVAR!?

There's going to be another nextgen racing game before we know, they should focus on getting the game out sooner than later.

delays are what cause (impressive) games to be unimpressive by the time they hit their audiences.

Then why announce the delay only when it was leaked? Especially when it was the big free PS Plus game at PS4 launch, except to be tricky? There are problems with the game that aren't going to go away by throwing time and money at it. Look at Duke Nukem Forever.

thats a stupid statement. Why only announce the delay after the leak. Ever thought that they were going to annouce it as been delayed then someone got clever and beat them to the punch. Which means they had to say something. Im guessing by tricky you mean not tell anyone till like the day before. Which is wrong in anyones book.

Its still better than M$ who are still trying to convince people they have the more powerful console. Now thats been tricky.

Actually thats just been in denial. And im not talking about the river in Egypt!

FORZA isn't a sim. It's not even close.

It's an arcade racer with nice cars and tracks. medium lighting.

As for Driveclub, it's an arcade racer with nice cars and highend lighting with vista's. open road.

DRIVECLUB & INFAMOUS Have superb lighting.

I'll tell you this.

Were Infamous ss ported to XBOXONE with exactly the same graphics and rez of PS4. It would run 10fps.

Do you often just walk down the street spouting unrelated topics at people?

If it's released and it's not good then people will judge not only the game but the system as well.

Yeah, no rush. I can surely wait for greatness.
-Pun intended.

It's being made by evolution. They have a habit of making target renders that look ridiculously good then going all out to make the game as close to it as possible. They know their racing games, rest assured this will be good when it comes out.

Also on a side note, we'll get it free on PS Plus, so don't complain about a AAA game being delayed when you'll basically get it for free.

Did anyone think that once they knew it was not in a state to be released that they have now taken the time to impliment things that they might of had to of left out to hit the origonal release date.

And while im hyped for this game so much if it is not a real storming AAA title after the delay then they need to be taken outside and shot.

Same goes for Watchdogs.

Not releasing half finished games is a good thing. But using a half finished game to push consoles at launch and then delay it is a shitty move.
And don't tell me they didn't know...

@thunderbear,Pc gamers

Anyone who buys Titanfall on anything but X1 is making a huge mistake. This game was designed from the ground up to be played on x1 servers and with a controller. I bet every Pc gamer will trash talk the game and be very disapointed.

Another Driveclub thread. And yet, another pointless comparisson with Forza 5.

You can bash all you want, Turn 10 have delivered an awesome game with great mechanics and inovation (Drivatars). Plus 1080p Locked on 60fps.

Evolution seems to be having problems to achieve similar results with the PS4. 8+ months to polish a game that was suposed to be avaliable at launch. When the game finally release, fanboys will come up comparing Driveclub and Forza 5 again like it´s a fair comparisson.

Give Forza 5 8+ months to polish, THEN comparisson would be valid.

If the rumours are true, i have some bad news for you fanboys.

Prepare yourselfs for FAIR comparissons.

Forza Horizon 2 is comming! THEN we´ll see a fair comparisson between two next-gen arcade focused games.

How is getting 2 promising racers at the same time exactly bad news ?
Obscure_Observer  +   738d ago
Not bad news at all. A least, no for me. I´ve expecting much of both.

I like both. But fanboy feel the need to compare everything game related to X1 and PS4.

So i tell them: "If you wanna compare something, a least be logical and honest".

That´s all.

this is why i hate sony, always announcing stuff that wouldn't see the light of day, and everyone gets excited, blinded by the bullshit. Microsoft announces games that will actually be released.
kenshiro100  +   738d ago
And then they release games that don't even match the trailers when they were first announced, right?

I'd rather have a developer delay a game, get it right the first time than to bring it out and it has stupid glitches and floating cars.
Obscure_Observer  +   738d ago
Are you talking about Gran Turismo?
kenshiro100  +   738d ago
Pretty sure there's videos of Forza glitches on youtube.
