The ambitious Sony driving game that was supposed to launch along with the PS4 has been delayed more than once, but recent statements from Scott Rohde, PlayStation Software Product Development Head for Sony Worldwide Studios America, seem like they might push the date back from the promised “early 2014” to “when it’s ready.”
Rohde explained where the game is at to IGN.
“What I will say is that it all comes back to that fundamental principle, and that’s that we want to build great games,” Rohde said. “And we really don’t want to release a game before it’s ready. And sometimes, this happens in the normal course of business, where we think we’re on track to deliver what we think is going to be a great game, and when we get closer, we realize that we’d be doing everyone a disservice if we shipped it before it was ready.”
“So, I think that at PlayStation, perhaps more than at other places, we’re willing to kinda eat that [cost],” Rohde continued, “and go back to the drawing board and make sure the game is great before we ship it. And that’s what’s going on right now with that game.”
IGN asked directly if the game would come out in 2014 at all, and Rohde wouldn’t comment, although Sony PR said more details would be coming soon.
