As for what’s coming after update 1.14, Evolution says they are doing “more server upgrades” to improve online performance, which will enable them to release the DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition and companion app. As they add, “We will have more news on this soon.”

When someone said Evolution constantly says “soon” regarding the PS+ Edition, the DriveClub Twitter account replied, “We haven’t said “soon” for a while. We don’t have info to share just yet but we’re getting a lot closer.”

Additionally, Evolution is planning more game updates, along with extra ranks and rewards beyond Level 50, which they are hopefully going to be releasing on a monthly basis.

Finally, those of you in Europe can download a DriveClub SHAREFactory theme today (North America gets it April 27):

Do you think there’s a chance we might get the PS+ Edition by the end of May?
