Drive Club Release Date

Drive Club has FINALLY been given a release date. The date is currently set for 8th October
2014. This is a huge change from the original release date that was to be around the launch of the PS4. What have we gained by delaying the game so long? We aren't really sure, but hopefully some good will come of it.

The new release date comes with a trailer that was put out. I will include the trailer after the jump...

Right now I think the game looks a little too much like NFS Most Wanted for my liking and I am not huge on how much they are pushing the social aspect of it so much, but then I am not a fan of arcade racers at the best of times.

A statement has been released by the studio mentioning a new director and a further update soon:
"We planned for the game to be ready for early 2014 and are committed to delivering on our ambitious promise of creating a truly innovative, socially connected racing game. The problem with being ambitious is you have to be prepared to accept there will be challenges along the way. What Driveclub offers has not been previously achieved in this category, and, because of this, the team needed more time to give you the game you’re waiting for.
In addition to the new date, we are also very pleased to announce that as of February 2014, Paul Rustchynsky--better known as Rushy--has been at the helm of Driveclub as Game Director. We appreciate the announcement has come a little late, however we wanted to inform his appointment along with the new date announcement.
His experience when it comes to delivering racing games is impeccable. Previously Game Director on critically acclaimed MotorStorm RC, he has been an integral contributor to all major titles coming out of Evolution Studios since 2004. With Rushy in the lead, we know Driveclub will deliver on its initial promise to be a truly next gen racing title for our PS4 portfolio.
We are really proud of the incredible work the team has produced--their tenacity and passionate pursuit of excellence is admirable, and Driveclub will be all the better for it.
Your anticipation for the title since my last update has been a huge source of motivation for the team at Evolution Studios, and I know they are all extremely grateful for your continued support. Look out for plenty more news on Driveclub in the coming weeks, including a blog update direct from Rushy tomorrow, and don’t forget, the date is in the trailer. I hope you enjoy watching it."
