Sony has formally responded to concerns over DriveClub's development following the layoffs at Evolution Studios, stating that DriveClub has been making 'spectacular progress' and that a release date update will be issued 'in weeks to come.'
"We would like to make it very clear that the development of DRIVECLUB on PS4 is going from strength to strength," Sony told Videogamer. "The announced studio changes across WWS yesterday have not affected the development of DRIVECLUB or the DRIVECLUB team, which has always had great direction and continues to do so."
"We have full confidence that the game will deliver on its PS4 promise to be the first truly socially connected racing title and we are very pleased and excited by the calibre of work from Evolution Studios."
"The progress being made on the game is spectacular," Sony continued, "so we're looking forward to sharing an update on development, release date and videos of the game in action in the weeks to come. We thank you for your patience and assure you, it will be worth the wait."
Following the news that DriveClub's Game Director had left Evolution, Sony commented that "DRIVECLUB does have a Game Director at the helm who we will be revealing very soon."
