[Update] Sony have finally confirmed that the launch title Driveclub including the PlayStation Plus Edition until early 2014. “DRIVECLUB will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game, but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision — and I’m fully confident the game will surpass your expectations.” reads the blog post.
It seems that not all of our next-generation “launch titles” are going to be available when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One actually drop. With the news that Ubisoft have delayed Watch Dogs and The Crew until 2014 it seems that Sony may also be delaying one of my most anticipated launch titles, Driveclub.
So far Sony is yet to confirm whether these details are in fact true but according to Kotaku they’ve heard word from people close to the matter who say that it is. Since then, a NeoGAF member has also heard from someone who also confirms that Driveclub will in fact be delayed noting that they trust the source they’ve heard the information from.
Kotaku managed to receive word from Sony but of course they “refuse to comment on rumour and speculation”. I guess we’ll just have to wait for the official announcement – if there is one.
