    The online-centric PS4 racing game Drive Club has been delayed to 2014, Sony has confirmed.

    The project, underway at UK based MotorStorm developer Evolution Studios, was originally scheduled for release as one of fifteen PS4 launch games in November. But both the full game and the free PS Plus edition will not available this year.

    Drive Club's delay is the second major blow to Sony's launch plans, with the news emerging three days after Ubisoft revealed it has delayed its highly anticipated launch game Watch Dogs to 2014.

    Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed the rumoured set-back in a statement published on the official PlayStation Blog. He said the title "will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game, but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision - and I'm fully confident the game will surpass your expectations".

    He clarified that a free version PS Plus edition of the title will be available when the full game is released. At the PS4's launch, however, the replacement for the free DriveClub will be the platform game Contrast.

    "If you're not aware of Contrast, it will whisk you away to a surreal vaudevillian, film-noir inspired reality full of performance, intrigue, shadow-play and drama," Yoshida said.

    On Tuesday, Ubisoft delayed the global Watch Dogs release date from this November to spring 2014. Retail chains quickly moved to assure consumers who pre-ordered PS4 Watch Dogs bundles that they will still receive their console on time.

    None of Sony UK's official PS4 hardware bundles include a copy of DriveClub.

    Sony has confirmed a PS4 release date of November 15 in the US and November 29 in Europe and Latin America.
