What is going on with Driveclub?

Just as it says. Sure the layoffs with restrucuring I get from a business exec I get but now the game director has left http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2014/03/25/report-driveclub-director-has-left-evolution-s...

So is it safe to assume that were not getting t his game this year?

I assume they are now going to launch it alongside Project Morpheus before GDC 2015. With full VR support that is truly innovative.

The games development has NOTHING to do Project Morpheus.

The game will release THIS YEAR.

Morpheus is a LONG way off. I expect this game or the next Gran Turismo to utilize VR, but I doubt it being the reason for the setbacks. 

 

This seems to be a new trend. Indie games allow freedom and creativity and are more accessbile than ever with the consoles making it easier to get games put on their marketplaces. 

 

Obviously, DC has some sort of restructuring going on. Do we know what it is? No. I assume it is them adding more content and possibly having it take advantage of the PS4 more (60 FPS was stated as one of their goals prior to launch). Or perhaps they saw Forza and wanted to ensure their driving game outdid it. We will have to wait and see,

 

However, the indie trend is starting to bug me. I personally enjoy high production values. I like a good story and realism is important in characters. A fun gameplay mechanic wil only hold my attention for so long now without some other substance to go with it. I am not usually a fan of the popular indie games. I also feel there is a curve made for their reviews. Like they are given some extra praise or leeway just for being indie. Are they not fun? That is not really my point. I just feel their is a different scale for them.

That is likely a placeholder date.

I highly doubt a cancellation. The game was set for launch and was delayed. The game was nearly finished. It is obvious that they wanted it to be a quality title and did not want it to be a poorly received launch game.
