Evolution Studios has finally provided an update regarding the PlayStation Plus edition of DriveClub which seemingly failed to release yesterday after months of promises made by Sony that it would be available at launch. As you’ve probably heard by now, DriveClub has had a pretty rough start both critically and technically with the online service for the game being a total mess.

Thankfully, Evolution Studios is working on it and has heard your complaints and provided an update. You can read the full update right here, but for those of you just wondering about when you’ll get to play the PlayStation Plus edition of DriveClub, you’ll want to read the statement below. Be prepared for some relatively bad news though if you were hoping to jump in today.

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.

To our PS Plus fans, we’re sorry you’re having to wait longer to play, but we want to ensure that when you come on board, you get the best experience possible. Rest assured, if you’ve pre-ordered the full game upgrade from the PS Plus Edition, you will still get the full version of DRIVECLUB digitally, and if you can’t get online you’ll be able to get started offline like everybody else with single player mode as you start your DRIVECLUB tour. You’ll still be able to earn fame, unlock cars and get to grips with all of the options for playing and creating your own events and challenges – and everything you do will be synchronised with the servers when you do get connected, so you can set-up a bunch of challenges to send out to your friends as soon as you are able to join each other online.

We fully appreciate how frustrating this is for everyone. We want you to get online with your club because racing, challenging and having fun together is what the game is all about. We know that racing with your friends online is what you’ve been waiting for and we are doing everything we can to deliver that experience to you as soon as possible.

Sorry again for the difficult start. We’ll keep you regularly updated on our progress as we work round the clock to improve connectivity. We want everyone to know what’s happening so please tag your DRIVECLUB friends or SHARE this message to let them know.

We’ll be sure to continue keeping you updated on the status of the DriveClub PS Plus edition so don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get instant updates.

    Wat. Shouldn’t this read “We fully UNDERSTAND how frustrating this is for everyone”? If Evolution appreciates the frustration that would make them straight up dicks.
