Writing on the PlayStation blog, Sony Computer Entertainment President of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, said of DriveClub:

“We are really proud of the incredible work the team has produced – their tenacity and passionate pursuit of excellence is admirable and DRIVECLUB will be all the better for it.”

DriveClub is out on October 7th in North America, October 8th in Europe and October 10th in the UK, exclusive to PS4, and you can see all new visions captured straight from the game in an all-new gameplay trailer below:

Yoshida also revealed that the team originally planned for DriveClub to release in early 2014, but ambition seemed to have got the better of them as they strove to deliver “a truly innovative, socially connected racing game.” He continued:

“The problem with being ambitious is you have to be prepared to accept there will be challenges along the way. What DRIVECLUB offers has not been previously achieved in this category and because of this, the team needed more time to give you the game you’re waiting for.”

In addition, Yoshida was pleased to reveal that Paul Rustchynsky had come onto the DriveClub project as game director as of February 2014:

“His experience when it comes to delivering racing games is impeccable. Previously Game Director on critically acclaimed MotorStorm RC, he has been an integral contributor to all major titles coming out of Evolution Studios since 2004. With Rushy in the lead, we know DriveClub will deliver on its initial promise to be a truly next gen racing title for our PS4 portfolio.”

Will you be picking up DriveClub in October?
