The lights are on
DriveClub's development has been troubled lately, with delays, layoffs at developer Evolution Studios, and reworked design. Apparently, the list of the game's difficulties doesn't stop there.
According to a report from VideoGamer, the game director of DriveClub, Col Rodgers, has left the studio. The report states that Rodgers has formed an indie studio called Big Red Switch Games. Rodgers says his departure is not related to the recently announced layoffs at Evolution Studios.
We've reached out to Sony for an official word on the situation.
Our TakeThis can't be how Sony wanted or expected things to play out for DriveClub. At last year's E3, the company chose to highlight DriveClub at its E3 Press Conference – even over the venerable Gran Turismo series' latest installment. The current state of affairs is a far cry for a game that was once presented as the future of racing games on the PS4.
