DriveClub PS4 server problems

DriveClub has been in development for years and the PlayStation 4 allowed for the dream to finally be realized. This is the statement made by PlayStation during the DriveClub PS4 launch, but the server problems starting since release have told a different story.

DriveClub-servers-ps4

Sony started by postponing the PS Plus edition after multiplayer server connection problems, and then we saw limitations put on the about of people allowed to play online at once. While things will improve with DriveClub’s multiplayer servers in time, every now and then the PS4 servers will go down again.

The same can be said for the MyDRIVECLUB app on iPhone and Android devices. This might have been pulled from Android and delayed on iOS to start with, but when the servers go down following its launch you can share these status reports below. If there’s currently problems with the DriveClub servers, you’ll find them reported on this page.

  • Jim Imler

    plus… the servers are down this evening, so even though i can play the offline game, i can’t play online. this is happening repeatedly now, since the “embargo” on ps plus users has been lifted. i love the game, but this will have me going to something else, soon, if this persists.

  • Jim Imler

    if you downloaded the driveclub theme for that sharefactory thing, delete it. that worked for me.

  • William Metcalfe

    I am sadly, rather annoyed tbh..

  • Joanne

    Is anyone having problems downloading DriveClub? I have tried on a number of occasions for my PS4 and its not loading.

  • brusselsproty

    Will it ever be fixed properly ?

  • Dan

    The Driveclub 1.16 update should be live today at around 10AM in the UK, also servers will go down with some problems involved with online play.

  • Raymond

    Even though we can still play DriveClub today because of the server updates, i know we can still create challenges, but what will happen to existing challenges when the new servers kick in?

  • Suzi

    DriveClub servers are being updated today from 1st June to the 2nd which means some things will not work. Now this is going to be a little bit of a nightmare.

  • Scott Campbell

    Cant even turn game on today! U think its fixed n another bug shows up! Time 4 ProjectCARS!!

  • PonceTek

    i cant sign into multiplayer, for 2nd day in a row now, what the hell, you know its memorial day weekend & a bunch of people were going to play, poor poor maintenance

  • Mornin Glow

    i purchased addon vehicles but it doesnt appear .. is it related to this issue?

  • joelacrasse

    c dla criss de marde votre affaire serieux

  • Damnserverpeople

    So i just came on driveclub today to see if thers any april fools events etc like in other games. At first i thaught the server downs were a prank obviously they’re not i just want to know whats going on is it maintinance issuies or too many people clogging the servers or what?

  • DriveClubKangaroo

    Down 2 days ago, down earlier today, on for 5 minutes, down again for an hour, now back up, for how long, I wonder?

  • james

    Same old skimping on servers and they expect me to pay more money for extra content. They should give me some money back for selling me half a game. Game should be called drive solo. Great game . . . . . When you can get on.

  • rick

    hey man, i bought the game 3 days ago. and i cant connect to the servers for 3 days now WTF! i think mine is broken or something>??

  • Walter

    I have the download version of this and had to do a restore of my PS4 recently resulting in not even being able to download the game for the last 2 weeks.

  • Fweds

    Keep getting kicked out of games. Now getting total disconnections.

  • Annoni

  • Matthew Hobin

    working for the most part today except for some reason this evening it refuses to send challenges to your friends as it cant seem to find them. plus its search feature is not working. online races working for the most part . and still disconnects periodically. which seemed to spiked in the last 2 weeks.

  • evilfangs .

    Please don’t! I swapped the crew for Driveclub because it is that bad! Be happy Driveclub is getting updates and will improve. 5weeks after release the crew is getting a minor update while it has major online bugs, cant connect to friends or join crew with them and the devs blame its user base!

  • Carpy

    Still having problems getting online ,thinking i might trade in for the crew ,waste of time and money .

  • Dan

    Can anybody help me please..

  • John Bobbit

    I’m in the US on the east coast and it’s 2:45am and in the middle of an online multiplayer match it kicks me. I haven’t had too many problems connecting to the server for quite some time and have NEVER had it kick me off in the middle of a race…now I can’t even create challenges or anything. This is ridiculous. I really hope Evolution gets their sh*t together soon. This is f***ing incredible!! I don’t understand what is so difficult for them. How can other videogame companies have this figured out?!

  • AJ

    Connection error.. this is annoying. They should at least fill some money in or wallet

  • Dave

    Can’t connect to multiplayer. This sucks!

  • Carpy

    This really sucks why release a game that you can’t cope with idiots

  • PAG
