The PlayStation Plus edition of Driveclub has been delayed “until further notice,” according to Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida.
Writing on the Driveclub Facebook page, Yoshida apologised for the issues that have delayed the game’s launch. He added that the game will not be released on PlayStation Plus until it is certain that everyone can enjoy the full social connected online experience.
His post read:
“Unfortunately, the road to launch has been a little rocky, and we are truly sorry that so many of you have not been able to enjoy everything that we had hoped Driveclub would deliver.
We have been listening to your feedback and realise that patience understandably is running out. Evolution is working around the clock to close the gap, and we have deployed additional engineering resources to help resolve the remaining issues as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, the time frames required to roll out the fully connected experience will be longer than anticipated and we do not have an exact time frame for when they will be resolved.
We are also very conscious that we have disappointed so many of you who were looking forward to playing the promised PS+ Edition. Our first priority is to provide you with the best possible experience while playing Driveclub. With the high volume of new players and additional server load the PS+ Edition is anticipated to bring, we are currently not confident that we can guarantee the best online experience.
Until we can ensure that everyone can enjoy the full social connected online experience, we will be postponing the release of the PS Plus Edition until further notice.”
