DriveClub game director departs Evolution Studios for indie developer

New, 16 comments

Col Rodgers, game director on DriveClub at Evolution Studios, has departed the studio in order to form indie developer Big Red Switch Games, VideoGamer reports.

According to the publication, Rodgers officially left in February. His replacement has not been announced, and his departure is apparently unrelated to recent layoffs.

Big Red Switch Games is an indie studio working in Unity. The developer currently has "some great games in production."

Earlier today, Evolution Studios was hit with layoffs, along with Guerrilla Cambridge and SCE London Studio. According to Sony, the layoffs will not affect the development of Drive Club.

Last month, PlayStation software product development head Scott Rhode said that DriveClub had gone "back to the drawing board" in an effort to ensure a high quality release. The game was previously expected as a launch title for PlayStation 4, but was later delayed to 2014. Its current state remains unclear.

Upon release, DriveClub is expected to hit the Instant Game Collection. Playstation Plus users will have the option to upgrade to the full version for a price.
