Evolution has announced that the PlayStation Plus edition of DRIVECLUB has been delayed due to issues with the server. However, the full version of the game will be playable, but on the single-player portion. The servers have been suffering following the launch of the North American version yesterday, which obviously means the Evolution didn’t properly test the servers prior to launch.
A post on the DRIVECLUB Facebook Page says:
In order to help all DRIVECLUB players who have the game already, we’re temporarily holding back the PS Plus Edition and the My DRIVECLUB app to ease the load and traffic to the servers. This should give players a better chance of connecting to the game servers and, once the servers are operating well, we’ll be sure to let you know when the PS Plus Edition and My DRIVECLUB app will be available to download.
This is another blow for DRIVECLUB and Evolution, since the game has suffered problem after problem, including a delay of almost a year. You would have thought that Evolution would have conducted a few beta tests to test server load, and scale accordingly for launch.
