Driveclub has been dated at long last, following a new trailer and blog update from Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida.

Today, Sony confirmed that Driveclub will launch on PS4 from October 7 in North America, October 8 in Europe, and October 10 across the UK.

In an update on PS Blog EU, Yoshida explained, “We planned for the game to be ready for early 2014 and are committed to delivering on our ambitious promise of creating a truly innovative, socially connected racing game.

“The problem with being ambitious is you have to be prepared to accept there will be challenges along the way. What Driveclub offers has not been previously achieved in this category and because of this, the team needed more time to give you the game you’re waiting for.”

Yoshida also welcomed the arrival of new game director Paul Rustchynsky in February, who has since steered the game through its additional months in development.

Stay tuned for our new Driveclub interview with Rustchynsky tomorrow.
