It's true that the game lost its director and we still don't have a release date.
But Sony fans needn't worry, as a SCEE spokesperson told Videogamer that development on the anticipated Driveclub is "going from strength to strength," and the recent staff changes do not affect the creative process:
"We have full confidence that the game will deliver on its PS4 promise to be the first truly socially connected racing title and we are very pleased and excited by the calibre of work from Evolution Studios.
The progress being made on the game is spectacular. So we're looking forward to sharing an update on development, release date, and videos of the game in action in the weeks to come. We thank you for your patience and assure you, it will be worth the wait."
Originally a PS4 launch game, Driveclub first got pushed into 2014, and then it had to be delayed even farther. Recently, we learned that Evolution had tried to implement Sony's new virtual reality tech, "Project Morpheus," but it just didn't work out . As for a new launch date, Sony would just say, "soon."
So despite it all, it's nice to hear the game is still coming along well. Cross your fingers!
