PS4 launch title DriveClub delayed into spring 2014 – rumor

Rumors swirling around the net state that DriveClub, one of PlayStation 4’s launch titles has been delayed into 2014.

We’ve sent a mail to Sony on this, but meanwhile, Kotaku has been told by a person familiar with the “goings on at Sony” state it is indeed true.

The rumor first started this today when The Same Coin stated it had heard from an anonymous source that the game had been delayed into spring 2014.

Sony is hosting an event in San Francisco today which includes some of its PS4 launch titles. Originally, DriveClub was part of the lineup, but it was removed due to a scheduling conflict, a Sony representative told Kotaku.

Furthermore, a NeoGAF member has also heard DriveClub was delayed, noting that they trust the source, but since this person is “not working on the game,” they “could be wrong [but] I trust that it isn’t wrong.”

Again, we have contacted Sony ourselves on the matter, and if they get back with us we will let you know; however, when asked by Kotaku, the site was told Sony doesn’t comment on rumor or speculation.

The rumor comes on the heels of Ubisoft moving its racer, The Crew into spring 2014, meaning the only racing title to launch with the new systems between now and speing – that we can think of off the tops of our heads – would be Forza 5 on Xbox One.
