Driveclub is making “spectacular progress,” according to Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, and there are plans to share an update on the game’s release date “in the weeks to come.”
Yesterday, reports surfaced regarding layoffs at developer Evolution Studios. An SCEE representative informed Videogamer that despite the studio changes the development of Driveclub “is going from strength to strength.”
“We would like to make it very clear that the development of Driveclub on PS4 is going from strength to strength. The announced studio changes across WWS yesterday have not affected the development of Driveclub or the Driveclub team, which has always had great direction and continues to do so.
“”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,” Sony continued, “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.”
In regards to the news that Driveclub‘s game director Col Rodgers had left the studio for personal reasons—unrelated to the layoffs—the representative revealed that “Driveclub does have a Game Director at the helm who we will be revealing very soon.”
