DriveClub is in no condition to be released and its developers are going "back to the drawing board", says Sony Worldwide Studios executive Scott Rohde.
Speaking with IGN, Rohde said the publisher didn't want to release a game half-cooked.
"Sometimes this happens in the normal course of business, where we think we’re on track to deliver what we think is going to be a great game, and when we get closer, we realise that we’d be doing everyone a disservice if we shipped it before it was ready.
“So, I think that at PlayStation, perhaps more than at other places, we’re willing to kinda eat that [cost], and go back to the drawing board and make sure the game is great before we ship it. And that’s what’s going on right now with that game.”
In October 2013, Sony pushed the release of the PlayStation 4 exclusive to this year.
The latest fad in gaming circles is to talk about discrepancies and resolutions across platforms prior to release, something The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer Michał Krzemiński has pooh-poohed as "pointless".
Speaking with gamesTM, Krzemiński refused to be drawn into The Witcher 3 resolution comparisons across platforms.
“If you’re asking me to throw a rock in the PS4 vs. Xbox One resolution war, I won’t. The game is not finished and talking about resolutions [and framerates] is, I think, pointless.”
Blizzard has announced the timing and pricing for its upcoming World of Warcraft expansion Warlords of Draenor.

EA has cancelled all Titanfall pre-orders in South Africa following network testing that found in-game latency to be unsatisfactory.

"After conducting recent online tests for Titanfall, we found that the performance rates in South Africa were not as high as we need to guarantee a great experience, so we have decided not to release Titanfall in South Africa at this time.
There will be no player-controlled flying mounts in World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.
In a wide-ranging interview with Gameplanet, World of Warcraft creative director Alex Afrasiabi told us, "At ship, we will not allow flying in the expansion - at all."
In previous expansions, characters have been forced to explore new zones on the ground, before being able to train for the ability to fly.
Xbox owners may soon begin to see targeted political ads appearing on their dashboard, reports the Washington Post.
According to the paper, Microsoft was seen handing out promotional pamphlets at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington DC.

Criterion is known for creating some of the most successful entries in the Need for Speed series, as well as the Burnout series.
