Driveclub’s October release date announced in new trailer

Shuhei Yoshida has broken the first rule of Driveclub by talking about Driveclub. On the PlayStation Blog the Sony Worldwide Studios President revealed that the game that would be a launch title for the PS4 will finally launch 7 October in North America and 8 October in Europe.

Driveclub suffered a series of delays and was pushed back from it’s launch day release. Development Head for Sony Worldwide Studios America Scott Rhode said in March that “[W]e want to build great games and we really don’t want to release a game before it’s ready.” Continuing he said, “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.”

In his PlayStation Blog post Yoshida said, “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.” He added that due to Driveclub’s innovation it needed additional time so that the team at Evolution Studios could achieve everything they set out to.

Driveclub was revealed to be coming to PlayStation Plus in a stripped down version last year, however Yoshida’s announcement today makes no mention of the PlayStation Plus version nor what is cut out of the full retail edition of the game.

Driveclub is coming exclusively to PS4 on 7 October in North America and 8 October in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
