Developer Evolution has promised yet another update to PS4 racer Driveclub, although most players continue to report significant online issues with the game.
However, the problems stem far beyond simply the volume of traffic on the game’s servers, director Paul Rustchynsky has admitted.
We’ve got no limits to the amount of servers or the quality of hardware,” he said on Twitter. It’s purely down to the server code having some bugs.”
An update rolling out anytime now promises further improvements, although there’s still no release date for the free PlayStation Plus version of the game.
Over the next 24 hours we are rolling out a new game update alongside server upgrades that will help to improve server performance, clubs and multiplayer functionality,” Evolution said.
We are also running essential diagnostics periodically to help us continue to improve server performance, which may disrupt online play for you when you get connected. This will be kept to a minimum.
We’re glad that more of you are getting to play online but we are sorry that many players are still having a hard time getting connected. We are working around the clock to improve connectivity and will keep you informed as we continue to make progress.”
Rustchynsky has previously admitted that the game’s problems were unexpected” after what was a successful beta period.
