A bit of bad news today for those racing game fans out there who already laid down their cash for a PlayStation 4 pre-order. It was announced on the PlayStation blog that #DRIVECLUB will no longer be a launch title for PS4 as its release is being pushed back to “early 2014” AKA sometime between January and March.
Sony Computer Entertainment Studios President Shuhei Yoshida stated that “the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision.” Which is a more than fair reason to delay a game but I am sure that this is still a huge bummer for those out there who are buying a PlayStation 4 just for this game.
For what its worth, I still think that once the game does come out it will be pretty damn awesome. I had a great time playing it at E3 this year so if the team is taking more time to make sure the game represents all that it promised at E3, then that can only be a good thing in the end. I would personally rather have a late triumph than an early disappointment.
