Driveclub's Release Date Pegged on Last Day of E3 by Dell; Matches Previous Rumors

Driveclub still doesn't have an official release date, but Dell is now sending out emails to customers pegging the launch day on June 12th. This matches with the June release window previously hinted at by the Italian Official PlayStation Magazine. (Driveclub, PS4)

For one, the rumored date at least sounds OK. It makes strategic sense for Sony to release a game during the slow summer months, especially considering there's a lack of big titles (The Elder Scrolls Online and The Evil Within), and Microsoft doesn't have anything with a set release date after Kinect Sports Rivals in April. It'll help get them escape the summer drop off as well as give more time to The Order and Uncharted 4 to develop if they need it.

I'd wait for official confirmation, but I'm hopeful. That game looks so good :P

In a Dutch store today (Media Markt) I saw a pre-order for Drive Club, which said the release date was 29/11/'14.

Although most likely it was justa guess on their part. It WAS printed on the box though.

@PeaSFor A return to pacific rift would be most welcome, definitely the best Motorstorm game

Why back to MotorStorm?
This, honestly great series, had three games.
It is time for new IPs and this will be DriveClub.
Who knows, DriveClub could be a very good racing game in the end.
I like MotorStorm, really like it.
I hope that there will be a MotorStorm on PS4 but NOT YET!
In a few years but now Evolution Studios should concentrate on DriveClub. It can be the counterpart to Forza Horizon.

Gran Turismo vs Forza Motorsport
DriveClub vs Forza Horizon

Not bad in my opionion.

Oh and I realy really hope that 12th June is true!

Because we are still waiting for this
And now the hardware is there to make it happen. In 1080p/60fps. I don't think anyone at Sony wants to compete with Forza games.

Drive club looks good, but MotorStorm filled a niche that no other game touches. I'd be more excited for a sequel than I am drive club...

My hope is a MotorStorm Game for Project Morpheus!
It would be the next big step for the series :)

@ zod

Sony doesnt have to compete with Forza because they have GT thats on an entire different stratosphere then Forza. Even guys behind Forza try to say oh no we are not trying to compete with GT because they know it will just burn them in the end. Drive Club seems like they are trying to be a more realistic NFS with more social aspects and multiplayer gaming centric. I am glad they wont release a game that doesnt meet their vision/expectations before its ready because you only get 1 chance to impress and get things right with a racing game let alone a new IP.

One of the few Sony exclusives I freaking love so much.

Would love to have a Motorstorm game on my PS4

June here we come!

If they give these out at E3 I am going to kiss Shuhei Yoshida or whoever is right in front of me at that moment.
coolasj  +   110d ago
After the Post-E3 release of The Last Of Us I've always thought that Sony should start a tradition of releasing a game on that exact time slot every year. I never wanted to buy a game more than after E3.
ShowGun901  +   110d ago
not to mention going against the storm of games in Oct-Nov every year is STUPID... you know 20mil people are buying COD, and a bunch are buying BF, why release that month? Everybodies clamoring for something new between april and august every year, space the releases out, heck, you'll get more of my money! LOL
DarkLord1003  +   110d ago
Usually I don't even like racing games but driveclub looks like a lot of fun
lnfiniteLoop  +   110d ago
whatever the date, they need to pull their fingers out… the PS4 is seriously lacking some original AAA titles… they need to get out a decent Racer and Beat-em-up, and quick… we need rebuilds not HD rehashes...
alb1899  +   110d ago
When this game arrive there will be another Forza already! :)
nycgamer4ever  +   109d ago
And that is a good thing how? Sounds like the usual milk to me?
alb1899  +   109d ago
The races games work like that my friend.
How many GT are?
How many need for speed?
Usual milk?
Of curse!
I won't be surprise if SONY decides to cancel Drive Club, too much trouble and money lose.
nycgamer4ever  +   107d ago
There isn't a gt every year or even two years for that matter. I think there were 4 forza games released in the same time 2 GT games released.

And I wouldn't be surprised if there was another Forza next year too. That would be three in two years on Xbox one. If that isn't milk I don't know what is.

I'd be more than happy with this release that.. if it was true of course.
iSpeakTruth__  +   110d ago
I'd be okay with this date. Would be nice to have it sooner though
Predaking77  +   110d ago
I didn't knew that Dell was selling video games. I though they were all about computers. Anyway, I'm still busy with Dark Souls 2, Infamous and Now Final Fantasy Online (which is amazingly good) so a June release would be great.
air1  +   110d ago
This game won't be out till next yr.. They fooled everyone with fake pics, basically they over promised just like most of these games..
Nine_Thousaaandd  +   109d ago
Please be true...and then announce a new Motorstorm at E3, for 2015 release! Boy boy boy...Driveclub this year and Motorstorm next year, I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it! Then end the show with a GT7 announcement as well...I can dream can I?
D3ATH_DRIV3R_777  +   109d ago
June 12th? hmmm.....
LordofPwn  +   109d ago
The date is wrong. Games don't release on Thursdays...
_FantasmA_  +   109d ago
LOL Thurday? I actually don't care too much about the day, as long as I get my hands on this game. Anyways, I wish games would release on Mondays or Fridays. Mondays would be good because its the start of the work week and what better way to make Mondays exciting than by having a new game to look forward after work/school? Fridays would be even better because most people are already in a good mood and get paid. But also because if you have no plans or you can't stop yourself from going out and getting effed up like Christian Bale in Harsh Times, then having a new game can keep inside instead of out on the streets.

Some games from Sony are released on Fridays, usually when it's a big global release. Like infamous, and the Last of Us. Usually though Fridays are reserved for the film industry as that's where most peoples' entertainment money will go. Tuesdays are held for releasing everything else so that:

A) can get a week of press towards the weekend to help push sales.
B) easier to track weekly sales as Mondays are reserved for catching up from events of the weekend.
C) Tuesdays are typically slow sales days so releasing new stuff on Tuesdays helps.
D) shipments go out Friday, get to businesses end of day Monday. Ready for sale Tuesday morning (or midnight).
E) some businesses are closed on Mondays.
