What’s our vector, Victor?
As news that layoffs across three major UK Playstation studios was released to the press today the director of Sony’s delayed PS4 racer DriveClub, Col Rogers, quit Evolution Studios to begin work with his new indie studio BigRedSwitchGames.
Rogers insists that his decision is not related to the layoffs at Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Cambridge and Sony London Studio.
Having recently announced that work on DriveClub had “gone back to the drawing board”, this sudden revelation doesn’t bode well for the game which has seen constant delays since it’s announcement last year.
There’s every possibility that DriveClub will see a release later this year, however being as Rogers was a huge driving force in the games direction and vision one has to wonder what kind of game DriveClub will turn out to be come the games planed September release.
My money is on a run-of-the-mill racer, one that is a far cry from Evolution Studios’ original vision.
Metal Gear Ground Zeroes, Infamous Second Son, Shenmue postmortem, and… erm…
YES. FUCK YES. FUCKING HELL YASSSSSSSS.
This follows on from Sega and M2′s previous wave 2 titles: After Burner, which was released just before Christmas and more recently Fantasy Zone.
So far no news on whether ANY of these three games are making it to the west.
Sega as usual spouting the same old bullshit: “We want to see how well the wave 1 games sell in the west before we blah blah rhubarb rhubarb”.
So if you haven’t picked up the 3DS versions of Sonic, Shinobi 3, Streets of Rage, Space Harrier, Super Hang on, and Galaxy Force II, DO IT. DO IT NOW.
OR I’LL KILL YOU.
