DriveClub Delayed, Won't Make The PS4 Launch In Japan

DriveClub Delayed, Won't Make the PS4 Launch in Japan

Slated to be a PS4 launch title in Japan, DriveClub has been delayed and won't make its planned February 22 release in Japan. The reason for the delay? Website Inside Games quotes the press release as saying "Various circumstances".

The game's release date is now TBA for Japan and will be announced at a later date. Note that the game's release date was "early 2014" for the West, so this could just be Japan being slow about the first delay?

DriveClub was originally supposed to be a launch game for the PS4 when it went on sale in the West. The game, however, was delayed at that time until this year.

"DriveClub will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game," Sony's Shuhei Yoshida wrote last fall, "but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision -- and I'm fully confident the game will surpass your expectations."

No word about how the game's PS4 launch delay for Japan impacts its global release.

    Delaying it's well and good but seriously they need to give the community some info as they go, because it's been so long since I've really heard anything I can't even remember anymore why I was even interested in the first place especially since I've never been much of a racing fan anyway.

      They are quite good at responding to fans on their facebook page. They often put up little video snippets with a detail of what they have improved since the last one, and they are making it look pretty great. I haven't had a look for quite a while though.

        Well, 'various circumstances' isn't exactly a stellar example of good communication. That doesn't tell me anything about why it's delayed.

      I was interested, when it was a launch title. Now, I really couldn't care less. Until seeing this article, I had actually forgotten about it.

    I just want a flood of games so prices settle back down.
