Evolution Studios’ Driveclub was supposed to be launched alongside the PlayStation 4 last year as a launch title but its release was delayed by well over a year. A couple of weeks back Driveclub was finally released but it immediately hit some bumps. Server issues frustrated many players who were trying to enjoy the title’s online gaming features, which is something that the developer takes pride in. Because of those issues it has been decided that Driveclub PS Plus edition release will be postponed.
This was announced in a post on the official Driveclub Facebook page by President of World Wide Studios at Sony, Shuhei Yoshida. He apologized that the issues have resulted in players not being able to enjoy everything that Driveclub was supposed to deliver.
Yoshida says that they can not provide an exact time frame right now in which the issues will be resolved, even though additional engineering resources have been deployed to fix the server troubles.
Since the release of Driveclub PS Plus edition will add more load to the servers, which are already incapable of supporting the load as it is, the release is being postponed until further notice.
Yoshida says that their first priority is to provide the best possible experience and they can not currently guarantee that this will be the case if PS Plus edition is released at this stage.
The PS Plus edition was meant as a demo of sorts for PlayStation Plus members which would help them make up their minds about whether or not they wanted to purchase the title. Folks who were holding out on that edition will now have to wait for unspecified amount of time.
