Server Issues Cause Driveclub PS Plus Edition Delay

The PlayStation Plus edition of Driveclub has been delayed. The reason? Server issues.

Game director Paul "Rushy" Rustchynsky explained in a post on Facebook that priority right now is being placed on consumers who purchased the full game. Sadly those waiting to grab the free version via PS Plus will have to sit tight a bit longer.

With Driveclub, we are dedicated to delivering a dynamic and socially connected racing game that everyone can enjoy, and along the way we're facing new challenges which we haven't encountered as a development team before. We are seeing a lot of activity and new social behaviors right now, but unfortunately this is pushing the servers to their absolute limits.

In order to help all Driveclub players who have the game already, we're temporarily holding back the PS Plus Edition and the My Driveclub app to ease the load and traffic to the servers. This should give players a better chance of connecting to the game servers and, once the servers are operating well, we'll be sure to let you know when the PS Plus Edition and My Driveclub app will be available to download.

To our PS Plus fans, we're sorry you're having to wait longer to play, but we want to ensure that when you come on board, you get the best experience possible. Rest assured, if you've pre-ordered the full game upgrade from the PS Plus Edition, you will still get the full version of Driveclub digitally, and if you can't get online you'll be able to get started offline like everybody else with single player mode as you start your Driveclub tour.
