Despite being released in North America on Tuesday, PS Plus players will be left waiting for their free copy of DriveClub PS Plus Edition. Earlier today developer Paul “Rushy” Rustchynsky took to Facebook, and explained that DriveClub PS Plus Edition and the My DriveClub app are being delayed due to server issues.

In a very lengthy explanation Rustchynsky apologised to everyone trying to get online saying that “We are sorry if you are having a hard time getting online as we know many of you are. Please be aware that the game will automatically keep trying to connect you. Once you’re online, you should have no further problems during your session.”

The problems are being caused partly due to the amount of traffic coming to the games servers, so to ease this they’ll be delaying DriveClub PS Plus Edition and the My DriveClub app.

By doing so “This should give players a better chance of connecting to the game servers and, once the servers are operating well, we’ll be sure to let you know when the PS Plus Edition and My DriveClub app will be available to download.

On the plus side Rustchynsky has confirmed that if you pre-ordered the PS Plus version, you’ll still get the full version digitally and if you can’t get online, you’ll still be able to play the single-player DriveClub tour and unlock fame, cars and create events and challenges “and everything you do will be synchronised with the servers when you do get connected, so you can set-up a bunch of challenges to send out to your friends as soon as you are able to join each other online.

Until the server issues are fixed, the DriveClub PS Plus Edition and the My DriveClub app are being held back. DriveClubs developer Paul “Rushy” Rustchynsky took to Facebook to explain the problem and apologise to fans and you can read his explanation here.
