Yep.. that's the latest I've heard.  That's kind of funny since it's been a year delay.

Ya not sure.  Maybe to make it look prettier.  I didn't know the game was made by the motorstorm guys.  So the visuals should be top notch.  I still think FH2 will have more content though and be better ovrerall.

It very well could be. Thing with me is I'm expecting FH2 to be a good next gen FH title where DC is entirely new. The DC devs are pretty good since MS during PS3 era was good and WRC for PS2 era was also good so EVO aren't some shitty devs

Weird to see this much controversy and delays happening with this title considering the pedigree on the studio working on it, I wouldn't hold my breath on this one, they're obviously dealing with some kind of serious shit.

OUch... It's getting reviewed bad.

The problem with DriveClub is that it's just competent. You'll drive some fast cars in some arresting environments. You might even have fun, in between getting clobbered with penalties. But there's no romance to it. No passion. What there is, however, is the lingering sense that the gaps were supposed to be filled by the much-touted social features - the fires were to be stoked by human rivalry. Sadly, beyond those bite-sized Face Off challenges, which are essentially side missions, there's nothing particularly engaging or new here.

What we're left with is a flimsy framework - a sort of clothes horse for content - rather than a truly great racing game. DriveClub is patently intended to attract a global, interconnected audience of fiercely competitive racers but, to quote the increasingly obscure 1989 Kevin Costner film Field of Dreams: if you build it, they will come. And, unfortunately, Evolution hasn't quite built it.

You notice that once Destiny came out.... reviews don't matter as much now?  :)  I knew Ryse was a fun game.

So... ya... this game. Not really impressed. The driving model is too forgiving- very arcade like. The tracks look like they are incased in snow globes no where near the vast expanse that is Forza Horizon 2. There's no atmosphere to this game. It's just menus that go to tasks to do. I can customize my character, but I don't see why. Granted the severs have been down for me, so I haven't seen that side of things, but man that stuff has a lot to make up for.
