The free to sample PlayStation Plus version of Sony’s troubled racing game, Driveclub, is being put on the backburner indefinitely. In a message from Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios, Sony explained that although additional engineers are being tasked to assist developer Evo with sorting things out, they have no estimate on the timeframe needed. Because their first priority is getting the game to work for customers that actually shelled out money for the game, the free version will not be released until the network troubles are resolved.
“We have been listening to your feedback and realize that patience understandably is running out.”
The original plan for the PS Plus edition of Driveclub was that it was supposed to be a free limited selection of cars and tracks that could be upgraded later to the full game for $50.
