Days after Watch Dogs’ postponement was announced, the team-based, arcade-style driving sim has followed suit and won’t hit shelves until spring 2014.
Driveclub was one of only two launch games that were meant to be offered for free to PS Plus subscribers. As a result, Sony will offer gamers the dark platform-puzzler called Contrast in addition to Compulsion Games’ Resogun. Sony says that DriveClub will eventually be made available for free on PS Plus, but said extra development time is needed for the game to meet its potential.
“We understand that the delay is disappointing news, but can assure you that the reason we have made this decision is to ensure that when DriveClub launches, it will realize the next-gen racing vision,” said Sony President Shuhei Yoshida.
