Some good news for fans of the PlayStation 4’s first exclusive driving game. According to player trophy information, 2014’s Driveclub has the largest number of players in the genre, at a staggering 10.5 million.
The European PlayStation Store is currently offering impressive price reductions for a variety of driving titles on the PS4. With price slashed by up to 77%, these offers will certainly appeal to players seeking bargains before the summer holiday period kicks in.
Sony’s Virtual Reality showcase for the driving genre has been given a release date with just under a month until the launch of PlayStation VR. Evolution Studios’ final title ‘DriveClub VR’ will reach PlayStation 4 owners worldwide on October 13 2016, following an announcement from the Playstation Twitter account.
The merger signals the vision of a “UK racing-genre powerhouse” that will house two of the most successful development teams within the UK. Co-founder of Evolution Studios Mick Hocking will become the VP of Product, highlighting that Codies isn’t simply absorbing the staff, but keeping the team as a creative unit that will bring a new IP to the table in the near future. The combined 45 years of industry experience proposes an exciting time for fans of the racing genre: between the two stalwarts, many iconic intellectual properties across both arcade and simulation disciplines have been released.
Completely unexpected and from out of nowhere, Sony has announced the closure of Evolution Studios – the first-party development studio behind the WRC, Motorstorm and Driveclub series of racing games that was acquired by Sony Europe in 2008.
