Trial version postponed ‘until further notice’
Evolution Studios’ long-delayed Driveclub released on October 7 but its saga is far from over — the game still has online issues, and the slice of game for PlayStation Plus subscribers isn’t out yet.
Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida issued an update on the game’s Facebook page. “We have been listening to your feedback and realize that patience understandably is running out,” he said. “Evo is working around the clock to close the gap, and we have deployed additional engineering resources to help resolve the remaining issues as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the time frames required to roll out the fully connected experience will be longer than anticipated and we do not have an exact time frame for when they will be resolved.”
Until that mess is cleaned up, there will be no Driveclub PS Plus Edition. “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,” said Yoshida.
“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.”
