According to a statement released to VideoGamer, despite the layoffs at developer Evolution Studios as well as the departure of the game’s director, Driveclub’s development continues to go “from strength to strength”.
"The announced studio changes across WWS yesterday have not affected the development of DRIVECLUB or the DRIVECLUB team, which has always had great direction and continues to do so.We have full confidence that the game will deliver on its PS4 promise to be the first truly socially connected racing title and we are very pleased and excited by the calibre of work from Evolution Studios.The progress being made on the game is spectacular,” Sony continued, “so we’re looking forward to sharing an update on development, release date and videos of the game in action in the weeks to come. We thank you for your patience and assure you, it will be worth the wait."
Last rumors suggested a September release date for Driveclub. We’ll know soon if that is to be the case.
