Is Drive Club getting delayed for PS4?

by William Schwartz on October 16, 2013

Rumors about the PlayStation 4 are once again swirling today.  The PlayStation 4 exclusive racer, Drive Club, is rumored to have been delayed.  While Sony hasn’t commented on whether or not this is the case, it would be the second next-gen title to have seen a delay in as many days.

Rumors of Drive Club’s delay originated on The Same Coin, who claim to have heard the intel from an anonymous source.  Since Sony has yet to comment on the status of Drive Club, all parties that are reporting on the news are leaving this as just a rumor for now.

More over, a report from Kotaku suggests that Drive Club was also recently pulled from a Sony showcase that was intended to show off the PlayStation 4 launch lineup.   Sony and the Drive Club team are being hush-hush about Drive Club news today, so we’ll have to wait and see if this pans out as anything more than a rumor.

Drive Club was due to arrive on the PlayStation 4 at launch, with a free partial game access available for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

  • Facts First

    Probably scared of Forza. its understandable really.

    • Whitbizzle

      Gran, not Grand but it’s nice you praised it with your choice of words.

    • Shannon Novosel

      Do you know how to read and spell?

    • Oscar Portillo

      Does anyone take you serious in any way?
      I only comment to keep the hate of you alive so try getting a life or better yet go out and make a freind.
      In your case go out and buy a $20 dollar freind and leave the gaming for real gamers.

      • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

        LOL

    This news is spreading like wildfire on the gaming sites. I imagine we will get official word fairly shortly – either denying or accepting the delay. The mouse is out of the house now so no point in hiding the true state of affairs.

  • Whitbizzle

    Got to love those anonymous sources. I heard from an anonymous source that the PS5 is coming out in two years….must be true if an anonymous source said so.

    • Wizard of Peace

      Oh, I heard PS5 was coming out in 3 years… Better find a new “reliable” source.

      • IHATEHIPSTERSSS

        Do u guys like bbq souce?

        • Wizard of Peace

          -_-

  • Ronald N Christy Keene

    man as a racing game fan only I’m screwed. first the crew on ps4 know maybe drive club. looks like my ps4 will have to wait until 2014. I wish all racing games were all multi platform.

    • Facts First

      Xbox One has got you covered.

      • quinten488

        No thanks

      • agentprovoc

        Go fondle your Xboner somewhere else :)

    • dave mcnair

      Just get nfs rivals. The devs have said the ps4 version is the best in interviews & comparable with the pc version. Once driveclub is ready it will blow forza out the water likely..

      • Ronald N Christy Keene

        ya that’s what I’m going to do just stinks paying $400 to play one game. I never liked Xbox or forza. Sony since ps1 no I’m not a fan boy I just prefer PlayStation. I guess I’ll have plenty racing games to play next year.

        • dave mcnair

          I’m the same, ps1,2,3 bring on 4. Did you try Grid2? Still fancy that but saving for ps4 now.

          • Ronald N Christy Keene

            same here other then gt6 maybe no more investing money for ps3 all ps4 from here on out. grid 2 had it. it kept freezing after the update so I traded it in. ps4 is looking good next year for racing games. drive club ? the crew I’m sure dirt 4?

          • dave mcnair

            I wish they’d do another pure rally game game i hate all that gymkhana s**te

          • ron24

            same here hoping for a dirt 4 like more like dirt 1&2. well I just got a email drive club is confirmed delayed until spring 2014. are you getting nfs rivals for ps4. if you have a ps3 send me a friend request psn ron24

          • tuck

            grid 2 was very impressive for me… got a little repetative towards the end but non the less… i loved it!

        • trfe

          Check out all the reviews of forza with the new rumble on Xbox one. They say the multiple vibrations make it an entirely unique experience. Oh and they just announced high end steering wheels.

          • GTwannaBE

            that would be okay if Forza did suck and was nothing but a wanna be.

          • trfe

            A wanna be what exactly?

          • copyNpaste

            LMAO WTFE you know what.

          • NOTHINGbutAwannaBE

            WannaBe

          • trfe

            You mean a more fun, less frustrating Gran Turismo? Ohhh let me do a race 10 times so i can get a license so i can keep racing around in circles.

          • Guest

            Xbox fking sucks dude. You would have to have brain damage or be slightly retarded to think it was half way decent.

          • trfe

            Xbox One named a top “breakthrough” product of 2013

          • RoadShow

            Holding onto what 1 group said huh? Gamescom awarded best hardware to PS4.

            Most developers agree PS4 is far superior to xbox one.

            Most gamers agree that PS4 is stomping xbox one into the ground.

            All the polls say it

            All the pre-orders prove it

            you just can’t accept it

          • trfe

            There’s nothing to accept.

            PS4 is PS3 with better hardware and a baby touchscreen on the controller.

            Xbox one is a whole new experience.
            Kinect. Voice Control. Xbox Fitness. TitanFall.

            Sure the PS4 is going to sell better for the first 4-6 months but once all the complaining pain-in-the-ass hardcore gamers are out of the way the xbox one is going to take off. It just has so much more going for it than just games.

            And once development is for xbox one and PC is rolled into one there are going to be so many damn games. SO many.

            And once the streaming service RIO rolls out and you can stream xbox one games to windows phones or surface tablets it’s going to be a massacre.

          • RoadShow

            (1) PS4 has touch pad, light bar, video capture/upload, cross game chat, a secondary chip to handle all uploads/downloads so that everything is seamless. Spectate & take over mode. Also voice/gesture commands.

            (2) Everything you listed is exactly what 360 is. Kinect, voice control, xbox fitness & some exclusive that’s not exclusive as it’s on PC.

            (3) PS4 will highly outsell X1 in all territories and just like xbox 360 with their 1 year lead it will be apparent. Friends that wanna game with friends will need to buy the PS4 which is beating the X1 in the US. Also world wide …by far PS4 will continue stomping X1. X1 will NEVER see #1 spot all gen. It is nothing but a #2.

            Xbox one aint got nothing going for it. Consoles target teens & young adults. We are a generation of cord cutters. Cable is for grand parents who like the way things used to be. No one cares about cable pass through…it’s a worthless game console feature.

            (4) You keep lying to yourself. So many games LOL. (A) Steam OS/Steam Box gonna take a chunk out of PC market. (B) It has been proven that Xbox certainly doesn’t deliver more. The last 4 years of 360’s life have been as dry as a desert. Despite 2.75 billion per year in XBL revenue + ad revenue from ads on your home page.

            How you can seriously think that when Sony’s been delivering huge exclusives year after year with xbox looking like a bad joke….you must just be trolling.

            (5) Windows phone aint ever gonna sell for $hit and you know it. Zune, Surface, Windows phone all have the same thing in common. The only hardware M$ can make that sells for a damn is xbox and that is far less popular already. Xbox won’t die…it’s scam to gain market share at the consumer expense worked and it is now a competitor to be dealt with…mainly still due to Halo which only short sided people can’t get over. Battlefield quenches that thirst for me.

          • agentprovoc

            Ummm… consensus is that that the “so much more going for it than just games” part kind of sucks. Kinect voice recognition is mediocre at best; TV integration is kind of useless without ability to interact with cable box (and that’s not likely to happen); etc.

          • agentprovoc

            By… whom, exactly?

          • Ronald N Christy Keene

            thanks but no thanks. I’ve had forza 2 3 and 4 and horizon. like I said in a earlier post never liked Xbox or forza. I’ve owned every Xbox to date and every PlayStation. Xbox is not for me. if you want get it. like my 21 year old son loves Xbox I don’t so ps4 it will be. with or with out drive club.

    • trfe

      PS4 launch lineup is a joke. You have a first person shooter and a kids game. Anyone buying a ps4 at launch is an idiot. Oh yeah, you get a few downloadable free to play games too!

      • Ronald N Christy Keene

        for me its not about ps4 lineup its about get the ps4 while I can afford it. idiot no smart yes. because I paid mine off. I won’t have the money come spring. unlike some I live in a state were we have what you call bills, for heating my home for the winter, a mortgage ect

        • trfe

          You live in a state where they have “what you call bills”? That sucks man. You should come to one of the states that don’t have “what you call bills”. Then you would have money come spring.

          Tell me more about these “what you call bills”. They sound like a real bummer.

          • Ronald N Christy Keene

            ask your parents they must pay yours

          • trfe

            Yeah. So…i was actually making fun of you because every person
            regardless of what state they live in has bills, not just your state. But you’ve probably never been out of Maine before so you wouldn’t know stuff like that.

            Maybe you should ask God for more money to buy a PS4 in the spring. Seems like you talk to him all the time.

          • Ronald N Christy Keene

            yes and proud of it but he gives us what we need not what we want godbless you

          • trfe

            Whatever floats your boat.

          • Ronald N Christy Keene

            like I said my ps4 is paid i full. nd yes I do talk to God all the time and very proud of it. I was talking about heating bills. and everyone don’t have bills there called dead beats no job wanna be. or like my wife told you. parents pays the bills for them. and yes I thank God every day. Jesus Christ died for my sins. how about you.

          • trfe

            How does Jesus feel about you playing video games? I imagine he’d want you volunteering your time to help those less fortunate.

            Couldn’t you have put that $600 for a ps4, games, accessories to better use? Like donating it to your local church or charity?

            People have been sent to hell for much less. I’ll pray for your immortal soul.

          • Ronald N Christy Keene

            first off your a punk and I do put money in the offering every Sunday. calling you a name is a sin. buying a ps4 and playing games is not a sin. that’s a big reason I normally play racing games only. like I said I’ve been saved by Jesus Christ my sins are forgiving I’m not going to hell are you. i’m a sinner saved by grace no better then anyone else just been forgiving. know can we move on about games. oh stop stalking everyone’s Facebook on here.

          • trfe

            Dude. I’m messing with you. If you really think God cares what kind of video games you play you’re a nutjob. You realize that nothing about video games is real right? If you kill someone in Grand Theft Auto it’s not like killing someone in real life.

            If God could see your facebook he’d tell you to get some other interests besides talking about him.

            Oh and your grammar and spelling are a sin. If i was God I’d send you to burn in hell for that alone.

            Talk again in a few minutes weirdo.

          • ron24

            weirdo you might be. a little puke you are. now go play with your ken dolls and leave the grown up stuff to the grown ups. god can see my facebook you idiot god sees everything I do. go learn what a true Christian is before you run your mouth. based on the gospel of the KJV bible. oh and this has been fun but I have grown up stuff to do. like go to work. so bye bye

          • trfe

            God is on facebook!?

            Think he would be my friend? Send me a link to his profile!

            Woah! We have something in common. We both have jobs! So crazy. What are the odds?

            Where did you fall on the whole “Rapture” thing a year ago? Did you think all the good people were going to be yanked up to Heaven and all the bad people would burn on earth? Why didn’t that happen? Do you think God slept in that day?

          • ron24

            if the rapture happened a year ago I would not be here. yes Jesus would be you friend just except him as your perianal savior. Romans 10:9-10
            If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
            (To “confess” means to “speak and live the same word and lifestyle that Jesus commands us to in the Bible”; to believe that God the Father raised Him from the dead is your conviction that God has set the course of this plan for our salvation from before we were ever born.)

  • Ricky

    Hopefully there won’t be any delay on their indie games!

  • IHATEHIPSTERSSS

    The cracks are already starting to show.

    Sad really.

    • jack

      It is sad days for PS3. All the problems coming out just before launch.

      • trfe

        That’s Sony’s plan! They keep all the bad news hidden as long as possible. Then it’s gradually uncovered by media or players.

        • Shannon Novosel

          Lol and what was xboxs to look weak from beginning to end

          • trfe

            It was to inform the public their intentions from the beginning. Sony hides everything until someone else reports it and then they respond. Oh look…drive club was officially delayed. Oh look, there is a DRM for the PS4 that is more stric than for the PS3.

          • Shannon Novosel

            Really so that is why xbox stuff came out over months instead of coming straight out and telling us there where reports from other sites before xbox said something go try your b.s. somewhere else

          • trfe

            You get so butt-hurt. It’s pretty funny.

          • Shannon Novosel

            Lol you get proven wrong and that is your comeback go back to living in your parents basement and leave the internet for the adults

          • trfe

            On your period over there Shannon? Get some tampons and come back when you can think straight.

          • Shannon Novosel

            To bad I’m a guy and again go back to your parents basement I’m sure it is past your bedtime anyway

          • trfe

            The parent’s basement line again? You need some new stuff kiddo. It’s getting sad. My parents live 5 hours away so going to their basement would be a pain. I’ll just go to the 2 bed room 2 bathroom place I own 20 mins outside NYC.

          • agentprovoc

            Two bathrooms… makes sense for all the crap you spew, eh?

          • UsherSucks

            Took you two months to put that together? Congrats!

      • agentprovoc

        Hahahaha… ummm, PS3 came out a long time ago dude.

  • Wizard of Peace

    Hopefully not, I was looking forward to play this day one.

    • Jack

      Too bad,

  • skapoo

    not such a perfect day after all :p

    • XBOXsucks

      Ah mad that PS4 has a bad ass “Gamers” commercial and xbone has some stupid BS for a commercial?

      • skapoo

        it was a joke…

  • njb

    Drive Club is made for PS4, even the Developer said.

    They have been wanting to make Drive Club for years but only now since Tech has progressed along with Online Play.

    If you believe everything you hear then im afraid your just to easy to influence.

    • trfe

      Bull! Drive club was a ps4 tech demo and they decided to just make it a small free game because gran turismo only comes out once every 5 years.

  • Mark Danger Hopps

    lol i love how xbots jump on every little rumor because nothing really negative has came out about the PS4

    Wish i could say the same for the xbox one…..lol

    • Ojdajuiceman

      That’s what you do dude. You attack xbox at every turn like it stole your bike or something.

      • Mark Danger Hopps

        I’ve got an awful lot to jump on though haven’t i!

        • trfe

          Maybe get a few more finger tattoos. You really showed your parents that you’re a grown up huh?

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            yeah because tattoo’s are a measure of a mans worth, are you a racist as well as a bigot?

          • trfe

            Haha. I call out those hilarious finger tats and I’m a bigot? Last time I checked bad tattoos wasn’t a racial or ethnic group. Bad tats and an idiot huh? Sucks to be you.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            Judging some one based solely on the fact they have tattoos is being a bigot, I simply asked if you where racist as well because bigots usually are.

          • trfe

            I’m definitely a Mark Danger Hopps bigot. The fact that I talk about your tattoos makes you assume that I’m against everyone with tattoos is a bit of a stretch. But I wouldn’t expect any less from some dude with finger tattoos.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            bahhh ha ha ha as if you say

            “The fact that I talk about your tattoos makes you assume that I’m against everyone with tattoos”

            and then in the very next sentence say

            “But I wouldn’t expect any less from some dude with finger tattoos.”

            shows how deep the retardation runs in you, I actually can’t stop laughing at that comment ha ha ha

          • trfe

            It’s all written to mess with your ink-soaked brain.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            Yeah, you did it on purpose……

            lol

          • trfe

            Uh Yeah. I see what i write. Re-read it. Then hit post. It’s not like we’re having a spoken conversation. I can craft my comment however i want.

            So yeah. I did it on purpose. Did you put those tattoos on your hands on purpose? Please tell me you were drugged and raped and you woke up with fresh tats on you with no memory of that happened.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            look man, trying to insult me on the internet and making yourself look stupid isn’t getting us anywhere, if we were actually discussing the article fair enough but we aint so i’m gonna leave this now.

            have fun kid

          • trfe

            Oh right. You’re the mature one. Talking crap about one video game console over another one.

            Talk about looking stupid, good luck with those tats when you’re 50. That’s going to be a pretty silly look. Why not just go all the way and get a face tat?

            Oh no, am I being racist again?

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            ..

          • trfe

            That was written when getting a tattoo was unique. Now everyone has them and 90% of them are horrible.

            Sure those guys look fine together in a tattoo shop but when they’re on a beach by themselves their silly choices as a young adult are glaringly obvious.

            I’d recommend you not cover yourself in crappy tattoo art.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            Think it’s a bit late for me, changed my profile pic just for you ;)

          • trfe

            Haha. Ever watch Ink Master? That show makes me want to get a tattoo.

    • trfe

      Because Sony keeps you dummies in the dark. How’s that Ps4 digital DRM treating you? I thought ps4 wasn’t going to have a DRM? They lie to your face and you say thanks guys!! Come take my money!

      • Mark Danger Hopps

        LOL are you high? DRM exists on both consoles now and steam when you download a title. People were upset about forced DRM on the x1 and the fact DRM existed even on physical discs.

        you’re an idiot man lol

      • agentprovoc

        Seriously? Get a life… moving on, you’re just a waste of time.

  • dave mcnair

    So what gtaV was delayed & look how that turned out. Take your time Evolution there’s plenty more to play for free & nfs rivals look class in the meantime.

  • trfe

    Funny. Sony really waits until to last minute to inform gamers. Just like the PS4 DRM that was uncovered in the Knack digital download end user contract a few days ago.

    • Mark Danger Hopps

      Every digital download is DRM’d ha ha ha ha man you’re stupid.

  • James

    So is this getting delayed? I thought it would be confirmed or denied by now.
