Driveclub Taking as Long as GT5: “Not a Chance;” Rumors of Further Delay “Click Bait” – Sony Dev

Two days ago a story on IGN heavily implied a further delay of the upcoming PS4 exclusive Driveclub, even hinting to the possibility that the game would not be released in 2014. Industry insider and known Sony employee DemonNite gave his take on the issue.

We shall see. If VR rumours are indeed true then there is some chance we will see it at GDC.

Hopefully we get some news/footage soon as it's been some time since that soon announcement of more news and the way the PR stepped in either means it could be a long while to come or VR surprise reintroduction maybe.

kinda annoying no racing game is out on PS4 yet.. i hope this one comes out fast because it looks very promising even last year i tried it at gamescom

Team_Litt1709d ago

Need for Speed? Or did yo mean exclusive?

WickedLester1709d ago


He meant a GOOD one! A true next-gen one!

komp1709d ago

Yes, absolutely.

That is what is missing from my collection. A driving game. I don't fancy NFS so I am hanging on....

I could goto PS3 of course but that is not the point :)

/me stares at G25

abzdine1709d ago

i never liked NFS. This series to me is so overhyped for no reason.

mewhy321709d ago

Well there's Need for Speed. So to say that there's no racing game for PS4 yet is inaccurate.
However, with that being said, it is disappointing that there isn't an 'Exclusive' racing game for PS4 yet. I mean a 'TRUE' exclusive (not appearing on any other platform). Let's hope that it doesnt take as long as Gran Turismo.

I was watching the gadget show the other day and they had a new VR headset they were demonstrating. It doesn't have screens but instead beams an image directly to the retina. It's supposed to be really good and is relatively cheap at £299 ~ $480.
I must say that the current interest in VR gaming looks really promising, I hope DriveClub is looking at entering that market.

LINK PLEASE. I'd like to see this. The name of the episode or something.

Abriael1709d ago

For the record, Driveclub's design director just retweeted this news piece, so we can pretty much assume that DemonNite is right.

Eonjay1709d ago

I accept that as confirmation.

I wish people would stop rushing game developers, you ether have a good game what takes longer to make to come out or you have a rushed game that rubbish and full of problems, take your pick but I rather have a game that takes longer to develop and is good.

one point these guys were showing off so much on fb a few months ago then they just went quiet

Abriael1709d ago

with "so much" you mean a few five second clips?

Team_Litt1709d ago

There have been 15 videos submitted since DC was delayed last year. They all suddenly stopped 49 days ago. I'm shocked you of all people missed this since 1 out of every 3 videos was submitted by you.

trikster401709d ago (Edited 1709d ago )

You got Litt up!

Sorry, had to say it. I love Suits.

Blaze9291709d ago

@TheLyonKing lmaoooo well damn!

ruefrak1709d ago

After listening to Scott Rhode talk about it, I think he was way misinterpreted. He was not saying that they scrapped the game and started over. He was saying that sometimes something isn't working like you hoped and maybe you need to rethink it. Perhaps in DC, he's talking about how online matches are created. Who knows. But after reading his statement, the media has definitely blown it way out of proportion.

DigitalRaptor1709d ago (Edited 1709d ago )

He definitely didn't mean they scrapped it and started over.

Why would any sane developer scrap this kind of cutting-edge technology?

They may have re-jigged their dev cycle to implement VR, is what i suspect, but going back to the drawing board would have DriveClub coming out in 2016. That is simply not happening.

ooquis1709d ago

I'm not in to racing games anymore but i feel for the gamer that love'em!

monkeyDzoro1709d ago

The story didn't imply a further delay. That story just stated WHY DriveClub WAS delayed. Where those people learn to read ?

That Sony exec said :

"[...]we really don’t want to release a game before it’s ready. And sometimes, [...] we think we’re on track to deliver what we think is going to be a great game, and when we get closer, we realize that we’d be doing everyone a disservice if we shipped it before it was ready."

"So, [...] we’re willing to kinda eat that [cost], and go back to the drawing board and make sure the game is great before we ship it."

At the end he refuses to tell anything about the release date. How could someone with a proper brain can conclude the game is further delayed ?

Its N4G, what did you expect?
