A user on PSNation claims to have seen a tweet, then screenshoted it, that showed the Driveclub release date.
Lets hope its true
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.
11 months 9.4.14 is next month so it will be 5-6 months late
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 9th...it'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...
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... @morganfell april 9th is a Wednesday... is this studio located in Europe? if so it can be legit
@UnRivaLeD, My mistake on the date. Yes, Evolution studios is a Dev Team based in the UK, in Cheshire actually.
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.
@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.
How can it be 11 months late when the PS4 hasn't been out for nearly that long.
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
wtf, who taught you how to count? *crosses fingers and hopes April 4th is true*
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.
@ 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.
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.
"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 Etc... 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.
no 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
@ TomShoe When it comes to games, Better Late If Better
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 - http://www.gamestop.com/ps4... .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
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 http://www.amazon.com/Drive... .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
One could be the free version release date and the other the hard copy.
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.....
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.
April 1st... April Fools day? N one is ever going to believe it to be released on that day unless officially announced.
@CrazyGlues, 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 http://www.sailsolutions.co...
@ 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.
I'm actually guessing it'll come out on Tuesday April 8th and that will be the ps plus game for april
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! Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Drive... GameStop: http://www.gamestop.com/ps4... All I can say now: 35 Days Left I CANNOT WAIT!!!
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
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.
I know when it is... 24th May 2014. The website is so sure below they are giving people £5 sterling if they are wrong on pre-orders. Guarantee We are so confident that you will receive Drive Club (with Special RUF RT12 R Pack) for Friday 23rd of May 2014 that if for ANY reason you do not we will compensate you with £5.00 to your account. * Only if pre-ordered by 12pm on Wednesday 21st of May 2014 Pre-release dispatch Pre-order Drive Club (with Special RUF RT12 R Pack) before 12pm on Wednesday 21st of May 2014 to receive it by the release date of Friday 23rd of May 2014( UK & Mainland Only )
Please let it be true.
I'm going to assume this means April 9th. Kinda weird that a game releases on a Wednesday, right?
As opposed to releasing on a Thursday (Sep 4th)?
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.
*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.
Australia usually has Thursday so it may be September, best to just wait for gdc
Well, you learn something new everyday. Thanks for the info.
Hope not...counting days til April, 1st. Damn, thats way off for September...I want to focus on Destiny around that time!
But IF it's right, and April NOT September, that's a Wednesday.
sep 4 is a thursday so thats weird too, infamous is coming on friday though. hopefully april, infamous march, driveclub april, mlb 14 ps4 may
September 4th? There is very little hype for this game at all and making it come a year later won't help.
I was thinking the September date. With a launch less than a month away, where's the promos, screenshots, videos, etc.?
Why do people keep believing all of these leaks? They're all dodgy as hell, I'm sure one bored individual just decided to release all these fake leaks today.
"Why do people keep believing all of these leaks?" I don't think many people "believe" them, as much as they hope they're right. Also, I've seen dodgy leaks come from strange places, which turned out to be true. Great example would be the people leaking the PlayStation Plus line up in Europe the past couple of months. That is coming from a store that mostly sells point cards and does like 6 blog posts a month. Yet, two months in a row they were dead on with titles no one could have possibly guessed.
The PS+ thing is fair enough, but the site did express some confidence in their source and these leaks are just so much less likely. In one day we've had a screenshot of a Driveclub tweet which no one else on the internet has seen posted by a new member on a random forum, an off-screen shot of an image of a title screen for Dishonored 2 on a monitor anonymously emailed to a random gaming blog, another one for Silent Hill which is equally dodgy, and poor quality cam footage claiming to be of the Uncharted 4 engine which has already proven to be fake. From what I've seen on here, it goes beyond just hoping that these leaks are real.
If this is true its more likely that it's September. Seeing as how we're pretty close to April and a release date hasnt been announced. I know one thing with a delay this long this game better be really really really good.
Evolution Studios is a European game company in the UK so it would make more sense that it would be 9th of April and not September.
their twitter says early 2014 so its april 9 !!!! aprils gona be epic driveclub and trials fusion april 15
Gamestop had the date listed as early April. I was torn between this game and Second Son. I know some of you may think thats a no brainer, but i was leaning towards Drive Club because it was something different and the graphics were so good. I eventually decided on Second Son, but this makes me feel better about my decision.
I bought this and infamous when toys r us had a buy 1 get 1 40% off. Tryna see if I can cancel driveclub after i get infamous so I can get a better deal.
If the Tweet is real and managed by someone at evolution it would be April because here in Europe we use a date format that makes sense Day Month Year.
Ok buddy...I guess it only makes sense for Europe then! As if Month Day Year is that hard to understand!
The logical thing is to go from either highest to lowest or lowest to highest instead of medium low high. A day is lower then a month and a month is lower then a year. Just like you have Hours Minutes Seconds and not Minutes Hours Seconds. You don't say it's the 21st Minute of the 8th Hour and 57 Seconds.
Actually is it hard and it makes no sense nor logic.could ya not change that I do believe america only does it. My son thought for ages 9/11 was in november.
Don't bother. The English drive on the left and there is no other way to explain it than its their way. We have ours. No biggee. I have a question though. If you ask a European what the date is, do they respond with "it's March 6th", or "Its the 6th of March"?
Honeslty man you people make to much out of the dumbest shit! I dont care that people disagree but damn really a date threw you off that bad that you had to nag about it.....and your right no one tells time like that. But I dont see anyone else crying ove how dates should be read! To each his own. Americans ha e there way and Euros theres.
Only north america dates that way the rest of the world does it dd/mm/yyyy much like maths or math! P.s look how we spell colour :p
Well I am American so I guess its only way I know! PS, we spell it color =P
*You MISspell it 'color' =P btw, fyi 'aluminium' has a second 'i' in it. Please pronounce it. It had the decency to make an appearance, it's plain rudeness to ignore it lol jk :)
Out in 4 weeks!! Course it is!!!!
European time - Wednesday April 9, 2014 it is.
I hope it releases this year. im pretty excited for this game
It will release with the VR headset.
Actually on Amazon in Canada it's listed for an April 1st release, which is a Tuesday and makes sense since new releases in NA come out that day of the week
Putting 2 and 2 together and coming up with broccoli, Games don't generally come out on a wednesday (Friday for here in EU and Tuesday for NA), but the PSN store does update here then. So could it be hinting at either a demo or the PSplus release... ... or it could be fake.
Yeah, April 1st would be nice though
