Driveclub goes ‘back to the drawing board’.

March 12, 2014

IGN are reporting that Driveclub, the delayed launch title from Motorstorm developer Evolution Studio, has gone back to the drawing board, in order to make the game “great”.

In a chat with Sony’s Scott Rohde, it was revealed that the game wasn’t meeting up to expectations at Sony and Evolution. “We really don’t want to release a game before it’s ready. And sometimes, this happens in the normal course of business, where we think we’re on track to deliver what we think is going to be a great game, and when we get closer, we realize that we’d be doing everyone a disservice if we shipped it before it was ready,” Rohde said.

Rohde wouldn’t reveal a new launch date for the title, but he did say that Sony were happy to eat the cost of a game that isn’t meeting their expectations. “So, I think that at PlayStation, perhaps more than at other places, we’re willing to kinda eat that, and go back to the drawing board and make sure the game is great before we ship it. And that’s what’s going on right now with that game,” he told IGN.

It’s not known exactly how far back in development the game has gone, but Rohde was evasive when asked if it would see a 2014 release.
