The PlayStation 4-exclusive team-based racer Driveclub is making “spectacular” progress despite a number of recent changes and layoffs within Evolution Studios.
SCEE recently told VideoGamer that the company “would like to make it very clear that the development of DRIVECLUB on PS4 is going from strength to strength,” in response to an inquiry about the changes within the studio. “The announced studio changes across WWS yesterday have not affected the development of DRIVECLUB or the DRIVECLUB team, which has always had great direction and continues to do so.
“We have full confidence that the game will deliver on its PS4 promise to be the first truly socially connected racing title and we are very pleased and excited by the calibre of work from Evolution Studios.”
The note also hinted at an upcoming announcement of Driveclub’s official launch date on the PS4.
“The progress being made on the game is spectacular,” Sony continued, “so we’re looking forward to sharing an update on development, release date and videos of the game in action in the weeks to come. We thank you for your patience and assure you, it will be worth the wait.”
SCEE also announced that “DRIVECLUB does have a Game Director at the helm who we will be revealing very soon.”
