Col Rodgers forms new studio Big Red Switch Games

DriveClub game director exits studio

The game director behind Evolution Studios’ upcoming racing game DriveClub has left the developer.

As reported by Videogamer, Col Rodgers said he has quit the studio to form his own indie company, Big Red Switch Games.

The developer claimed he had left for "purely personal reasons", and his departure was unrelated to recent layoffs at the studio.

It is not currently clear who will take Rodgers’ place as the game director for DriveClub.

The racing title was slated as a launch title for the PS4 back in November, but has since suffered a number of delays. A release date remains unclear, and earlier this month Sony’s Scott Rohde admitted the developers had "gone back to the drawing board" on the title.
