PS Plus subscribers hoping for a free shot at DriveClub will need to wait a bit longer.
Evolution Studios’ DriveClub is no stranger to delays, having been held back by almost a full year from its originally intended release date. Now that the game is out at retail, it seems the free PS Plus Edition has been delayed. This is due to high traffic that are currently taxing the PlayStation servers.
On Facebook, the developer stated that, “We are sorry if you are having a hard time getting online as we know many of you are. Please be aware that the game will automatically keep trying to connect you. Once you’re online, you should have no further problems during your session. Everyone at the studio is now working hard to get new updates ready for the game servers to improve connectivity. We will be rolling out these updates day by day and will keep you informed.
“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.”
