Driveclub is being pulled from PSN at the end of August, servers shutting down in 2020

Sony has posted an announcement on the PlayStation website stating that Driveclub, Driveclub Bikes and Driveclub VR will be removed from PSN on 31 August, 2019, and revealed that servers for the games will be shut down for good March 31, 2020. 

While all the online features and modes will no longer be available, players will still be able to play the single player offline modes if they own the games. 

The post lists what will and will no longer be accessible to players after servers have shut down in 2020: 

You will not be able to:

- Use your season pass online.

- Represent your Club online in Multiplayer events or tours.

- Play online multiplayer and compete in challenges.

- Create your own events. 

- Compete in leader boards, or share stats and player progress. 

You will be able to:

- Use your season pass on all single player and offline modes.

- Continue to play all game (DC, DC VR and DC Bikes) and DLC single player functionality in offline mode.

- Earn Trophies in single player/ offline mode. 

Sales for the games will also come to end from the 31 August, 2019, so if you’ve been wanting to rev your engines and get in on some speedy racing action, you only have a handful of months left to pick it up. 

Driveclub first hit the roads back when it was released in 2014, and was one of the earlier PS4 exclusives to be released when the PS4 launched back in 2013.

Senior staff writer

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
