The insanity of the Christmas season has finally subsided, which means that it's the perfect time to start up the old rumour mill again. On the agenda today is gorgeous PlayStation 4 exclusive DriveClub. The racer's release was originally scheduled to coincide with the next-gen system's launch, but was delayed until early 2014 to allow for a more polished experience. Apart from that one solitary morsel of information, though, the game's actual release date has remained decidedly nebulous.

However, British retailer ShopTo has recently listed the game for 28th February. What's more, the outlet's so confident in that date that it's willing to offer you £5 ($8) if you don't receive the title on the specified day. Obviously this news is best taken with a heaped teaspoonful of salt, but it does seem like a particularly savvy time to launch the racing sim. With inFAMOUS: Second Son set to explode in March, a February release would mean that the PS4 has a strong and consistent lineup throughout the first quarter of 2014. What do you make of this tasty rumour? Drive recklessly in the comments section below.
