Driveclub Ps4 Shutdown

DriveClub is nearing the end of the road, it seems. A new notice on PlayStation's official website states that the racing game will be delisted from the 31st August 2019, meaning that it'll no longer be sold on the PlayStation Store. That goes for DriveClub, DriveClub Bikes, DriveClub VR, and all DLC associated with DriveClub.

On top of that, the game's servers will be shut down on the 31st March, 2020. You'll still be able to play the offline portions of the release, but all the online functionality -- the multiplayer, challenges, events, and leaderboards -- will be lost.

It's an announcement that leaves a bitter taste, because DriveClub did eventually blossom into a top quality racing title. It received stellar support from developer Evolution Studios before the company was closed back in 2016. It's incredibly unfortunate that the game was never quite able to shake the negativity that had surrounded its shoddy launch in 2014 -- first impressions always count for a lot in this rather unforgiving industry.
