We still don’t know when any of this is coming, but here’s what Evolution has planned for the future of DriveClub:
- Server Upgrades – To improve stability and performance for all current players and to enable the release of the PS+ Edition and DriveClub companion app.
- Private Lobbies – Development of Private Lobbies for Multiplayer is ongoing alongside development of server upgrades.
- Replays – Are in the final stages of development and testing. It’s likely that offline replays will come ahead of Multiplayer replays.
- Changes to Drift Scoring – To ensure that you are rewarded for momentum, control and staying on the track in drift zones.
- Lots More Cars – We can’t say what’s coming just yet, but many of your most commonly requested cars and manufacturers are coming to DriveClub, along with a few surprises.
- New Ranks – Because many of you are at Level 50 already.
- Lots More – Please keep sharing your feedback about DriveClub with us to help the game continue to evolve around you.
