There was a lot of hype for Driveclub initially but it seems that it has now tapered off for the game. Sony has confirmed that it’s going to be shutting down the servers for Driveclub, Driveclub VR, and Driveclub Bikes next year. It’s going to delist the games from the PlayStation Network store as well later this year.
The company confirmed on its website that it’s going to shut down the online services for the aforementioned titles on March 31st, 2020. This means that all online features will cease to be operational after that date. It will be possible for players to still play these games in single player offline modes after that.
Given that these games have significant amounts of online gameplay, it’s no longer going to be that fun for players. When the servers are shut down, players will not be able to use their season pass online, represent their Club online in multiplayer events or tours, play online multiplayer and compete in challenges, create events, and compete in leaderboards.
The company has also confirmed that the PlayStation Store will cease selling Driveclub, Driveclub VR, and Driveclub Bikes in addition to all of their DLC and season passes from August 31st, 2019.
