Sony has confirmed Driveclub will hit its end-of-life status on 31st March, 2020. The closure affects Driveclub VR and Driveclub Bikes as well as the base Driveclub game.
“Online servers for Driveclub, Driveclub VR and Driveclub Bikes will shut down on 31st March 2020, 23:59 BST,” PlayStation confirmed via an update (thanks, Engadget). “All online features (including online multiplayer modes) will cease on that date. You will still be able to play and enjoy these games in single player offline modes.”
The post goes on to confirm that players will not be able to use season passes online, represent their Club online in multiplayer events or tours, play online multiplayer and compete in challenges, create their own events, compete in leader boards, or share stats and player progress once the servers are shutdown. You will, however, still 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, and earn trophies in single player / offline mode.
