In the lead-up to the launch of the PlayStation 4, Sony touted the racing game DriveClub as one of the system's biggest offerings. However, it was subsequently delayed and still hasn't arrived. That meant that racing fans had to watch friends playing Forza 5 on the Xbox One, while Sony countered with the Gran Turismo 6 on the previous-generation PlayStation 3. Now, it looks like DriveClub might finally be close to making it to consoles.

Videogamer.com spoke with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe which said it would, "like to make it very clear that the development of DriveClub on PS4 is going from strength to strength." While a release date isn't set yet, the company says it's being announced soon along with new gameplay videos.

DriveClub was delayed allegedly because of problems within developers Evolution Studios. Videogamer.com claims that the game's director left the team in February. The studio previously developed World Rally Championship games for the PlayStation 2 and Motorstorm for the PS3.

When we previewed DriveClub last year, we found it a hybrid between arcade and simulation racing games. It also showed social and networked racing features with many gamers in the world at the same time. With such a long delay, the game could have changed significantly since then, though.

      The game looks awesome, but the physics and game play are way more important than graphics.

      While this game alone isn't enough to convince me to get a PS4, I'm keepin an eye on it.

      Sony is the leader in over-hyped racing game vaporware

          If you're talking about Gran Turismo being a "real simulator", it's absolutely ******* far from it. Only zealous Playstation fanboys would consider it one. It's a good driving sim, but that's it. It's not a very good racing simulator. Terrible AI, zero collision physics, no tire deformation, lack of mechanically specific damage simulation, etc. etc. The only thing it has going for it is it has an awesome selection of vehicles (albeit there's the presence of redundant Japanese models) and it supports Logitech's G27 wheel, which is the most widely available and moddable sim wheel. Oh yeah, it has photorealistic graphics due to great art direction. At least better than most PC racing sims.

      This was no hybrid sim/arcade. It was entirely arcade. It will will be entirely arcade.
