Sony has issued a statement indicating that DriveClub developer Evolution Studios is still making 'spectacular' process on the PlayStation 4 exclusive racer.

Originally announced as a PS4 launch title, layoffs at Evolution and DriveClub game director Col Rodgers calling it quits meant many through that the exclusive was in trouble, but Sony claims it is planning to announce a release date imminently…

In a statement issued to Videogamer, Sony made said that it “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.

This week Sony announced layoffs at three of its UK studios, following redundancies at Sony Santa Monica last month. Employees at Evolution Studios, Guerilla Games Cambridge, and Sony London SCE were unfortunately laid, prompting fears of turmoil in Sony’s game division.

When do you think DriveClub will finally arrive?

Do you think it can be a Forza-beater?

Let us know!

I don't think DriveClub will arrive this year. Games with extreme graphics are always delaying for a few times and I think we should be aware of gameplay disappointment when it finally comes out.
