Driveclub was supposed to be a PlayStation 4 launch title. Unfortunately, though, it wasn't ready.
That's the explanation Sony has given for the delay, and it's a common one. Sony UK boss Fergal Gara said that while racing fans were miffed, they "wanted it to be right:"
"I don't have any announcement on it now. The only reason that product was delayed and we haven't accurately communicated a revised release date is that we want it to be right. There's a fair promise in that title in what it wants to do with social features and really innovating in the driving genre.
There's no point in it coming out and half doing that job. It was quite ambitious and didn't quite get there in the timeline hoped. That's not great, but it's far better to bring it out at the standard."
All of that is true, of course. Nobody wants a half-ass product on the shelf, especially when it's an exclusive title for a new console. At the same time, I would've liked an actual release estimate update. We've heard that it might launch later this month (alongside Watch Dogs , actually) but other estimates have placed Driveclub in summer.
Do you have a problem with it being delayed? I don't. Get it right, I say.
