DriveClub's free PlayStation Plus Edition is still on the way, Sony says

New, 33 comments

"We are continually working on improving the server capacity to enable us to launch the PS Plus Edition as quickly as possible."

That's the latest word on the long-awaited free version of DriveClub from an unnamed Sony spokesperson according to Eurogamer.

DriveClub was released in North America on Oct. 7 last year. A free limited version of the game for PlayStation Plus subscribers was initially supposed to be available when the game launched, but was delayed due to major server problems for the online-centered game. Weeks later, the free version was postponed "until further notice."

Confusingly, this latest statement comes just one day after Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president Jim Ryan reportedly said, "I can't say anything at this stage" in response to a question about whether DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition is still happening.

According to Eurogamer's source, the free version is definitely still in the works, although Sony still has nothing official to say regarding the launch timing for it. Polygon has reached out to its own Sony contacts for clarification and will update this story if we hear anything back.

If you'd like more information on DriveClub, you can check out the latest version of our review, which was updated post-launch to account for continued server problems with the game. A new update taking into account more recent patches and improvements is in the works, so stay tuned for that.
