Has one of the PlayStation 4's big launch exclusives has been pushed back to next year? Rumors are swirling that DriveClub has been delayed to 2014, but Sony won't comment on the matter.
A website called The Same Coin sparked the rumor earlier today, claiming they'd heard from "an anonymous source" that Sony's big racing game, originally slated for release alongside the PS4 on November 15, has been bumped to next spring. "Treat this as 100% rumour for now," they wrote. "Hopefully it will turn out to be false."
While I hadn't heard of this website before today, a person familiar with goings-on at Sony told me today that the report is true.
To add some fuel to this rumor fire, today in San Francisco, Sony is holding an event to show off their PS4 games. Although DriveClub was originally part of the lineup, a Sony rep told me this afternoon that it has been removed due to a "scheduling conflict." ..
So, it doesn't even say what quarter 2014! Hm. Who here was buying this on launch, btw? It'd be pretty weird to have Driveclub come out like Q2 2014, or something. I mean it sounds a good Summer game to me.
At least include some more tracks or something, or an app for the new launch. Hm.
Edit: Oh right, it says Spring. It still Looks like a Summer game.
