Driveclub Servers Shutting Down In 2020, Game Delisted From PSN Later This Year

Sony has announced that servers for Driveclub, Driveclub VR and Driveclub Bikes are all being shut down on March 31, 2020. The games and all their DLC are being pulled from the PSN Store later this year, on August 31, 2019.

Players who own these games will still be able to play the single player modes found in these games after the servers are shut down. But all social and online features will no longer work once the servers are turned off.

After August 31, the game will no longer be purchasable. So if you want to play Driveclub, you need to buy it soon.

Driveclub developers Evolution Studios were shuttered by Sony in 2016 and then Codemasters acquired the staff from the studio shortly after the closure.

    This shit has gotta fucking stop, especially from first parties. Elastic compute in the cloud isn't that hard to maintain.

    Will the game's updates still be available after it gets pulled from the store? It was a mess at launch but eventually got patched into a genuinely good racing game. It would be a shame if someone who picks up a used physical copy later on gets stuck with just the day one, 1.0 version of the game.

      Can't you download patches to a USB or am I being too optimistic here?

        Well for the less tech savvy, they won't be trying to download a patch off a third party website to the run on their console.

    The game had great potential but was grossly mishandled by both the studio and Sony themselves.
