DriveClub was supposed to be delisted here in the UK at a minute before midnight on Saturday 31st August, but if you head on over to the PlayStation Store right now, you'll find that it is no longer available for purchase. Sony has pulled the listing for DriveClub early in European territories, leaving fans and potential buyers unhappy.
The official wording on the delisting of DriveClub was as follows:
PlayStation will cease selling DRIVECLUB, DRIVECLUB VR, DRIVECLUB Bikes and all DLC and season passes related to those games from 31st August 2019, at 23:59 BST.
That exact time has, of course, not passed yet. Thanks to a tip-off from a reader who wrote in to us, it appears that the listing has actually been down for nearly two days now. "Sony delisted all DriveClub games and all DLC around 17:00 GMT August 29th." Scanning through forum chatter reveals that people started to notice that the game and its DLC was no longer available for purchase at around midday yesterday.
It's another kick in the teeth for the title, as it has become clear that many potential buyers were waiting on one last fire sale before it was gone forever tonight. This is a fairly common practice too, with Microsoft giving away Forza Motorsport 6 as part of Games with Gold and bundling up all its DLC for around £4. At the time of writing, DriveClub is still available on the US PlayStation Store.
