“Good enough isn’t good enough for Evolution.” Behind the scenes with the delays and determination of PlayStation 4’s great racing hope.
There’s a lot riding on Driveclub. Sony has to deliver on the promise of a true next-generation racing game after that painful delay. The game has to square up to competitors already successfully carving their own space in the crowded racing genre. And Evolution has to prove it can still deliver as a development studio in a UK scene that has seen utter devastation over the past five years.
We recently visited the team in the north of England to get hands-on with the game, speak candidly about the difficult development process, and see Sony’s vision of the future of the racing genre.
