According to PlayStation Worldwide Studios executive Scott Rhode, Sony has gone “back to the drawing board” to make Evolution Studio’s PlayStation 4 racing game Driveclub the best it can be.
Speaking to IGN, Rhode explained that Sony would be “doing everyone a disservice” if they shipped the game in its current form.
“What I will say is that it all comes back to that fundamental principle, and that’s that we want to build great games,” Rhode said, in part. “And we really don’t want to release a game before it’s ready. And sometimes, this happens in the normal course of business, where we think we’re on track to deliver what we think is going to be a great game, and when we get closer, we realize that we’d be doing everyone a disservice if we shipped it before it was ready.”
“So, I think that at PlayStation, perhaps more than at other places, we’re willing to kinda eat that [cost] and go back to the drawing board and make sure the game is great before we ship it,” Rhode added. “And that’s what’s going on right now with that game.”
When asked if the game would launch in 2014, Rhode refused to say however a Sony PR said that more details about Driveclub will be released soon.
