Many have been wondering if Driveclub will really make a 2014 release, and that’s not too surprising considering the mystery surrounding basically every detail on the game’s development.

Today Design Director Paul Rustchynsky confirmed that the game is saferly headed for the shelves this year, but he declined to give a more precise timeline:

Still coming 2014, unfortunately I can’t share any more.

I wish I could provide a timeframe, but I can’t say anything right now.

He also clarified what he meant with a previous vague statement on microtransactions, promising that there won’t be any “consumable” boost available for purchase in Driveclub.

To be clear on microtransactions, DRIVECLUB will of course offer content to purchase/download. But there will not be any ‘consumables’.

Finally, Rustchynsky mentioned that the Thrustmaster T80 & T500RS racing wheels will be compatible with the game, but “at this stage” he could not comment on other models and brands.
