DriveClub Not Being Delayed to Implement VR Support, says Yoshida

By   /   Mar 20, 2014

Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that Evolution Studios did experiment with the prospect of virtual reality with the upcoming racer DriveClub but in the end scrapped it altogether. His statement was to in tandem shut down a recent rumor that the game was being delayed because the studio wanted to implement virtual reality support.

“There’s a rumor the reason of the push back of DriveClub was to make it Morpheus compatible,” he told Gamespot at GDC 2014. “That’s totally untrue.”

He continued to explain that the studio worked with a cockpit view using Project Morpheus, but VR only worked at low driving speeds. When players drove faster, it became “kind of difficult and sickening.”

DriveClub was originally announced as a launch title for the PlayStation 4 but was delayed to early 2014. The game was then thought to be released during the Japanese PlayStation 4 launch but that didn’t happen either. There is still no word on its release except that it’ll come this year. Evolution Studios delayed the game to “go back to the drawing board” with it.
