Things continue to look bleak for DriveClub as Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida steps in to announce that the release of PS Plus Edition has been postponed until further notice.
Posting on the game’s Facebook page, the worldwide studios president admitted that the game’s launch has been “a little rocky” and that the company apologizes for putting its players through such an ordeal.
We are also very conscious that we have disappointed so many of you who were looking forward to playing the promised PS Plus Edition,” he wrote. “Our first priority is to provide you with the best possible experience while playing DRIVECLUB.
With the high volume of new players and additional server load the PS Plus Edition is anticipated to bring, we are currently not confident that we can guarantee the best online experience.
Until we can ensure that everyone can enjoy the full social connected online experience, we will be postponing the release of the PS Plus Edition until further notice.
It’s always appreciated that a company is straight forward with its consumers. Shuhei Yoshida specifically mentioning that they cannot guarantee a stable multiplayer experience right now will not bode well with DriveClub owners. That probably means that an immediate fix is not on the horizon.
“We are committed to giving you the best racing experience on PS4 – it’s taking a little longer than we hoped,” he then added.
DriveClub: PS Plus Edition was supposed to go live on October 7 but was then delayed following immense online issues that prevented the players from playing altogether. Sony would be hoping that DriveClub does not turn out to their version of Battlefield 4.
