Driveclub suffered a massive delay late last year, with developer Evolution stating that there were massive technical issues with the racer. After playing it last year, I think there was a lot more wrong than just technical issues, but that’s hopefully why the delay was so long. We’re close to the release date, and some players have already dived into Driveclub.
Well, at least it seems that way. Several PlayStation players have received invitations to a Driveclub beta, something which Sony has been completely quiet about. A few screenshots show the game in action, as well as previously unseen tracks.
The beta is apparently called “Cupcake” (yummy) and right now there’s no way of knowing how people can get in. Some users on NeoGAF have suggested that the beta is exclusive to those in Sony’s Beta Test Program, which would explain why there is no sign-up sheet anywhere.
It isn’t clear whether Sony will be having an open public beta ahead of the game’s October release, but it does definitely look like Driveclub won’t be suffering another delay. Although I’m already uninterested enough to know that it’s one of the games I’ll be skipping that month.
That, and I still don’t have a PS4. That factors in somewhere along the line I think.
