Driveclub Delayed Due to “Polish Polish Polish” According to Sony Dev; Teases Gran Turismo 7 Prologue

Driveclub was supposed to be a PS4 launch game, but four months later we still don’t have a release date. Today NeoGAF user DemonNite, that is known to work at Sony Computer Entertainment even if his actual position is undisclosed, shared a bit more on why the game was delayed.

As I kept saying, polish polish polish.

When another user mentioned that the game must have been in a very bad condition (in quite harsher wording) back in October to warrant such a long delay, he responded:

Thats a bit harsh. It needed extra work.

Interestingly enough, when someone expressed his hope that Gran Turismo 7 won’t take half a decade to reach our consoles, DemonNite teased:

Are we talking about GT7 or the prologue here ; )

While the possibility that he was joking exists, he’s not the first one to name Gran Turismo 7 Prologue, and hearing it named by someone that actually works at Sony is definitely interesting.

    “Polish”, yes. That’s also what Ubisoft said about Watch_Dogs, and pretty much that’s what any developer would say when their game is delayed. We didn’t see any new video of DriveClub for the past couple of months, but I trust Evolution Studios.

      I’d still rather have had a PS4 Motorstorm from Evolution over a social based arcade racer.

      I loved me some Motorstorm

      • oGMo

        I’d even be happy with a PS4 Motorstorm RC. I still play that game on my Vita!

        That said I’m vaguely interested in Driveclub because it could be fun, but not holding my breath. Waiting to see if Ubisoft screws up The Crew or not.

          ugh for motorstorm rc.

      • Wargreymon559 .

        How about stop being fkn greedy and we can have both??You enjoy Motorstorm and I’ll enjoy DC deal??Deal

      I’d rather delays than crap. I’m not hurting for games to play … even driving games. I can always replay Burnout Paradise.

  • Temjin001

    It wouldn’t surprise me if there was a GT7 Prologue of sorts. I’d rather have Polyphony just invest all of their time in finishing a full-sized game rather than being sidetracked by producing a Prologue edition.

    I’ve been loving GT6 so I am quite excited for a GT PS4 outing.
    It’s too bad GT doesn’t get the respect it deserves. I’ve read too many unqualified reviews for this series. I suppose a simulator among gamers is bound to attract flack and heavy knocks for nitpicks (not to mention straight up false statements) in lieu of all the many great things this series achieves with each and every outing.
    I just hope PD sticks to their “gear head” guns and keeps the series’ core objectives at the fore without yielding to sensationalized representations of how real auto racing ought to be through the eyes of gamers.

    Prologue better be free this time. Come on, PlayStation, we know you like us loving you.

            Iowa slow clap to you for trying.

          • PCS4-Box U

            Its better off being Polish than its current state of Missouri

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Its better off being in Missouri than Hungary.

  • Philip Bradley

    Bloody Polish nicking our jobs now nicking our games! ; p

  • lester perdomo

    god not another gt prologue … the last one was the biggest waste of time.

  • CervantesPR

    Better to delay games then having crap at launch,And that sucker better be 1080p 60FPS and you better not make this into a franchise, we already have gran turismo for that, you should go make a car combat game next time.

  • Bankai

    I’m confident that DriveClub is going to be great, Evolution is a very talented studio and their track record is proof of that. Sure there games are usually overlooked in favor of NFS, GT and Forza, but theyve don some great work ove the years.

    Buy GT7 Prologue for £59.99

    No actual GT7 released. Instead DLC updates to build on the “prologue”

    DLC pieces of the game, each selling for around £29.99 – £39.99

    End up paying more than £300 for ” Gran Turismo 7: Final ”

    $ony gave MS a lot of shit at E3, for their XB1 practices…yet it’s turning out to be pretty obvious to everyone but playstation fanboys, that $ony are slowly building up many, many insidious practices that are going to fleece you all for as much money as possible…

      What’s obvious is that you’re making things up in some failed attempt to paint Sony as a villain.

      Oh, you mean kinda like Killer instinct right?
