Driveclub Releasing Significant Server Update, But There’s Still More Work To Do Preview

Driveclub developer Evolution Studios is releasing a “significant server update” in the next 24 hours that should improve the game’s performance, the developer has announced on its Facebook page.

“More improvements will follow as we make progress on Sunday and Monday, but we still have more work to do to get everything back on track before we can give you any bigger or better news,” Evolution said. “We will keep you up to speed.”

Evolution will also run performance diagnostics around this update, but it shouldn’t result in “much” disruption or downtime, it said.

Evolution has been updating Driveclub and bringing more servers online, but it still hasn’t resolved all the issues that have plagued since launch, some of which have prevented players from connecting to the game’s servers, locking them out of a lot of the game’s content.

“As always we appreciate your feedback about online play as it improves and about your time with the game in general, so please keep sharing with us,” it said.

Evolution had no update on when we’ll see the free version of the game for PlayStation Plus members. The Plus Edition was to offer a limited slice of the game, giving Plus Members access all features, but only certain cars and tracks. Earlier this week, Evolution said it had no “concrete info” on when it would be released. It was originally expected out alongside the full game on October 7, only to be delayed due to server issues.
