"Mark your calendars 9.4.14"
Driveclub may be released on April 9 if a message reportedly tweeted by Evolution Studios is to be believed.
While tweet reads "Mark your calendars 9.4.14", the assumption is that this refers to April 9 rather than September 4, as Evolution Studios is a British-based developer. We've been unable to verify the tweet's legitimacy, but have reached out to Sony and will update as soon as we hear back.
Originally planned to be a launch title alongside the PS4 in North America and Europe,Driveclub was delayed to early 2014. When asked about why this had happened, Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida explained it was to do with complications surrounding implementation of the game's ambitious social features.
The game also missed launching alongside the PS4 in Japan on February 22. When we asked Sony about this, we received the following statement: "The team at Evolution Studios are working hard to bring Driveclub, a truly next gen driving experience to PS4 and we will announce the release date shortly. We're really excited about how Driveclub is progressing and thank you for your patience."
