Driveclub officially launching October 7

Posted on April 29, 2014 AT 08:00am

After months of waiting, Evolution Studios’ PlayStation 4 exclusive racer Driveclub finally has an official release date.

Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida announced over on the PlayStation Blog that Driveclub will be available from October 7 in North America and October 8 in Europe.

“We planned for the game to be ready for early 2014 and are committed to delivering on our ambitious promise of creating a truly innovative, socially connected racing game,” Yoshida wrote. “The problem with being ambitious is you have to be prepared to accept there will be challenges along the way. What DRIVECLUB offers has not been previously achieved in this category, and, because of this, the team needed more time to give you the game you’re waiting for.”

As well as announcing a release date, he also confirmed that Paul Rustchynsky has been appointed as Driveclub‘s game director. “We appreciate the announcement has come a little late, however we wanted to inform his appointment along with the new date announcement,” Yoshida added.

“His experience when it comes to delivering racing games is impeccable. Previously Game Director on critically acclaimed MotorStorm RC, he has been an integral contributor to all major titles coming out of Evolution Studios since 2004. With Rushy in the lead, we know DRIVECLUB will deliver on its initial promise to be a truly next gen racing title for our PS4 portfolio.”
