Driveclub’s launch has been anything but smooth, with the game facing significant server issues since its October 7 release. The problems resulted in server downtime, the removal of features, and the indefinite delay of the PlayStation Plus edition.

In response to a question from a fan on Twitter, game director Paul Rustchynsky says the studio is considering “all options.” This includes compensation for purchasers of the game.

We’ve reached out to Sony for more information on the status of Driveclub’s servers and restoration of missing features. We’ll update should we receive a response. For more on Driveclub, check out our review.

Our Take
This shouldn’t be taken to mean that compensation is guaranteed, but Sony would be foolish not to find some way to make this up to paying customers. This launch has been a black eye, especially just one month after Bungie and Activision executed a relatively smooth release for Destiny. Of course, don’t expect any word on compensation until Driveclub is working as it should have on October 7.
