Only 11 months late, but better late then never.

Hopefully I'll have a PS4 and Sony will have their VR headset out by then.

EDIT: HERP DERP. The UK does it in ddmmyyyy format, so it's probably April 9th, not September 4th.

EDIT2: @Tier1 I mean from PS4s launch date, not from today. My math is wrong anyway, ~10 months from Novemeber 2013.

TIER1xWOLFPACKx2178d ago

11 months 9.4.14 is next month so it will be 5-6 months late

morganfell2178d ago (Edited 2178d ago )

Fingers crossed. But someone needs to tell those people on that forum that May is the 5th month of the year, not the 4th. April is the 4th month, and the date would be April 9, 2014.

@ UnRivaLed,

It may be but the funny thing is if you reverse the dates for September the 4th rather than April's still a Thursday.

Fake or not I think we will know in 2 weeks at GDC. Particularly if the rumors of Sony testing VR with Drive Club turn out to be true.

Besides, look at the PS4 launch date...

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt2178d ago (Edited 2178d ago )

this is fake its a thursday wth

I'm hoping it comes out earlier then that

Edit: i read that date as it was september 4th lol...


april 9th is a Wednesday... is this studio located in Europe? if so it can be legit

morganfell2178d ago (Edited 2178d ago )


My mistake on the date. Yes, Evolution studios is a Dev Team based in the UK, in Cheshire actually.

parentoftheyear2178d ago

I'm glad it didn't launch with the system. As well as watchdogs. As much as I would have love to have these game right now it would have made for a pretty bleak few months. Now we have exciting releases to look forward to. Bf, Rahman, lego, knack have kept me occupied cause I like my 100% in games only have a few weeks to finish now. LoL.

Patrick_pk442178d ago

@UnRivaLeD Infamous: Second Son comes out on March 21st world wide, which usually game in North America come out on Tuesday. Remember games can be released on whatever date the developer and publishers decide. I also remember reading that the earliest it would come out would be around March-May, I would believe April would be the perfect time for another exclusive.

Sy_Wolf2177d ago

How can it be 11 months late when the PS4 hasn't been out for nearly that long.

DOMination-2177d ago

Why do the english do dates backwards it makes no sense but on topic I can't wait to get into my virtual mustang and cruise through dynamic weather and nightime ps4 is the best and the best is a ps4 racer at 30fps

FamilyGuy2177d ago (Edited 2177d ago )

wtf, who taught you how to count?

*crosses fingers and hopes April 4th is true*

BadlyPackedKeebab2177d ago

April the 9th is a Wednesday and Sept the 4th a thursday. That doesn't fit US or UK release days. Unless its a wednesday to co-inside with a ps plus release.

94jdh2177d ago

@ DOMination - "Why do the english do dates backwards it makes no sense "

No, we do it right, start with day, then month, then year - smallest to largest. Makes perfect sense to be honest.

Fez2177d ago

dd/mm/yy definitely makes more sense. Smallest to largest. Plus, the day is usually what your really interested in when you ask for the date, because you probably already know what month it is and hopefully you know the year. Makes sense to be told the important information first.

Oner2177d ago (Edited 2177d ago )

"No, we do it right, start with day, then month, then year - smallest to largest. Makes perfect sense to be honest."

Huh? What? Really? Because during any month when the day becomes larger than the month number its actually NOT smallest to largest and that definitely doesn't make sense. Example:

January 2nd would be 2/1/2014
February 3rd would be 3/2/2014

Yet when you write a letter or when most people would be asked a full date they would reply April 1st 2014. Thus making the most sense to put the Month, Day & Year in that order.

andibandit2177d ago


a day is smaller than a month, which is smaller than a year,

Least significant to most significant, makes perfect sense....

[email protected] remembering how the date is depending on how it's written in the En-us culture

mochachino2177d ago

@ TomShoe

When it comes to games, Better Late If Better

FamilyGuy2177d ago

Lol, wtf @ Oner

Obviously smallest to largest

days are shorter than months which are shorter than years.
It makes absolutely perfect sense.

What justification is there to go month>day>year?
There's no logical reason to go in that order.

No it's not September... LoL he's reading it wrong..

it's day - 9 Month - 4 year 2014

-and the tweet probably got taken down because it's not going to be the 9th it's looking like it's going to be the first.. so 4/1/2014 or UK 1/4/2014


||.........___||............ ||

Crazyglues2178d ago

Who disagreed with me...

DriveClub is coming out April 1st you idiots..

Both GameStop and Amazon have the same date, that's not a coincident

iiorestesii2178d ago

One could be the free version release date and the other the hard copy.

Akuma072177d ago

When will the US stop trying to defy the rest of the world and change their stupid date format? They only did it so they could be different from Britain.....

crazysammy2177d ago

GameStop and Amazon are using that date as a place holder so there is not stock in quoting that. Its possible it will come that day, like any date right now is possible, just dont use GS and Amazon as the end all source.

FamilyGuy2177d ago

April 1st... April Fools day?
N one is ever going to believe it to be released on that day unless officially announced.

BadlyPackedKeebab2177d ago


I am not an idiot and no its not a coincidence!

april the 1st is the start of the new 2014-2015 fiscal year. They use those dates as placeholders in the industry as the game will release in that window.

see the fiscal calender

Crazyglues2177d ago

@ BadlyPackedKeebab

yeah I didn't mean it like that - I say idiot all the time, like in a joking way, like - "OMG... you are such an idiot"

-but it doesn't come off like that when you write it, so I apologize for that, I didn't mean to call anyone idiots like how people are reading it, sorry about that..

So please people don't take offense to that, that was my bad..

------------As far as the date, it's is a confirmed date, they don't do that anymore, they don't place a date based off of when it might come out.. These are confirmed Dates... Both Amazon and GameStop are now using confirmed dates from the Publisher..

The only other two dates they use are Dec end of the year 2014 or 15 for when you don't know when it's coming but it's expected in that year..

or the leave it blank.. when they have no idea when it's coming out..

you can check this by looking at any other games, the witcher 3, the division, Uncharted -

notice Dying light was March 21 - and is now blank because the developer pulled the date and they now don't know when it will release.

So DriveClub's April 1st date came from the publisher..

It's probably not. This is a supposed screenshot of a tweet (which is VERY easy to photoshop) posted on a forum by someone who had joined today and that was his second post. Plus no one else has said that they saw the tweet too.

Rickgrimes952178d ago

I'm actually guessing it'll come out on Tuesday April 8th and that will be the ps plus game for april

emad-E-three2178d ago

I for one believe its true (I really hope) :D
the way I look at it is:

The release date is an EU date because the studio is located in UK thats 1st.

2nd the DRIVECLUB account is being followed by the "PlayStation Europe" and "PlayStation UK" official accounts and not by the US PlayStation one so this at least proves the date is an EU type!

3rd so now the date is 9th/April/2014 but some say "its Wednesday not Tuesday" Easily because un-world wide releases ALWAYS have next day release for the Pal region and the PS Store (again for the Pal region) always updates on Wednesday and giving the fact that the PS+ of DRIVECLUB been confirmed to be available on the same day the game releases that alone make me believe it :D

damn even Amazon and GameStop have the release month as April!



All I can say now: 35 Days Left I CANNOT WAIT!!!

showtimefolks2178d ago

I think its September, and while i was disappointed that it got delayed, i am also happy that sony gave the developers more time

Also the reason i believe its september is because more E3 leaks/rumors suggest Drive club updated build will be show at E3, meaning Drive Club will come after E3

jmac532177d ago

It might be Sept. because the rumors were that this would showcase the VR headset.


sweet!!! two days before my birthday!
I know what im buying myself.

Dubmacie2176d ago

I'm going to assume this means April 9th. Kinda weird that a game releases on a Wednesday, right?

porkChop2178d ago

As opposed to releasing on a Thursday (Sep 4th)?

Bolts-N-Rays11092178d ago

Yeah, both dates are odd. Probably best to seriously take this rumor with a grain of salt until Sony or Evolution Studios officially say something.

Mr Pumblechook2178d ago (Edited 2178d ago )

*Wednesday is the traditional release day for games in mainland Europe.

* Friday is the traditional release day for games in the UK.

The exception being titles that have a worldwide release day shared with North America.

shivvy242178d ago

Australia usually has Thursday so it may be September, best to just wait for gdc

Bolts-N-Rays11092178d ago

Well, you learn something new everyday. Thanks for the info.

Nine_Thousaaandd2178d ago

Hope not...counting days til April, 1st. Damn, thats way off for September...I want to focus on Destiny around that time!
