GRID 2, Gran Turismo Racing Developers Helped With DriveClub on PS4
Some interesting information about DriveClub has been revealed by Paul Rustchynsky, Evolution Studios’ Design Director, in an interview with the PS Blogcast. It looks like Evolution has received a ton of help with the game, with devs behind games including Gran Turismo, GRID 2, and Project Gotham Racing lending a helping hand.
When asked about how they have developers from all over the place working on DriveClub, Paul said:
“With DriveClub – because it’s a new racing experience – we wanted to make sure that we picked some of the best talent within the games industry to work on DriveClub. So – with the handling for example – we’ve had guys who worked on GRID 2, Polyphony (Gran Turismo), [Project Gotham Racing], MotorStorm; some of the biggest racing franchises today. We wanted to make sure we used all that experience to deliver – in the case of the handling – the best model possible.”
As a PS4 launch title, Evolution Studios has clearly been working with the hardware for quite some time. Speaking about their experiences, he continued. “Delivering a launch title is always a very tricky thing because you can actually feel the dates, but developing for the hardware – the PlayStation 4 itself – it’s just been a joy to work with. You’ve got a lot of the features and functionality, which typically as a developer you’d be expected to integrate into your game, where most of it is just done via the OS nowadays.”
