Driveclub Plus Version Not Canceled, But No Update Yet

When Driveclub was first announced, Sony made it clear that PlayStation Plus subscribers would get a free version of the game.

Well, that hasn't happened yet, due partly to the serious launch issues developer Evolution faced.

And in a recent Metro UK interview, SCEE boss Jim Ryan made some comments that made gamers wonder if we'd ever see that free Driveclub iteration. Well, the good news is that it's still coming.

Sony confirmed to GameSpot that they're currently trying to create a network that can handle the additional stress when a free product hits the PSN:

Although currently we do not have an update regarding the timing for the launch of the PS Plus Edition, we are continually working on improving the server capacity to enable us to launch the PS Plus Edition as quickly as possible."

Driveclub has gotten past its growing pains and a lot of people are enjoying the beautiful-looking racer. Here's hoping that Plus edition comes sooner rather than later, so more can appreciate the game!

If anything, I think it would be in the games best interest. I don't know the figures but I can't imagine the game sold well after the fair press abuse it got. Putting it on PS+ Will at least get the game out there more. I heard after some updates it wasn't all that bad.

It is surprising that the physical version of the game sold 1.55 million according to VGchartz. I imagine the digital version did quite well for being $10 less than retail. I for one went digital on this one.

I remember reading somewhere that the digital version sold 1 million in its first week... Really can't remember where I read it though... It might have been at PSU.com... Anyways the game was a disaster at launch but now it runs like a champion... Def worth checking out for ppl who like racing games

I'm really enjoying Driveclub and I only play single player. It is a lovely looking game but I'd like a replay mode.

If there is one and I some how Stevie Wonder'd it, let me know!

Yip, waiting for a replay mode. Excellent game. The weather is worth the price of admission alone.

So I'm guessing that means they never expected the game to sell very well if they after so much time still haven't been able to get their network to be able to handle the Free Plus edition, and somehow they still have the stomach to charge for said network now...
