DRIVECLUB Servers Close Next Year for All Games

By Rebecca Smith,
In the absence of Gran Turismo in the early years of the PlayStation 4, DRIVECLUB filled the void for many players. Unfortunately, the game's lifespan is drawing to a close. DRIVECLUB, Driveclub VR, and DRIVECLUB BIKES are all due to be delisted in August, before their servers will close in March 2020.

Once the games' servers go offline, players will be able to play all single player and offline modes for the games and their DLC. Trophies for these modes will also still be available. However, none of the online multiplayer modes or online challenges will be available. These are the features players will not be able to use:

  • 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.
This means that some of the games' trophies will become discontinued at 23:59 BST on March 31st, 2020, when the servers are closed. The full list of trophies that will be affected is below:
