PS4 games news today includes a warning about a popular PlayStation title which fans soon won’t be able to get.
The PS4 has been the console of this generation, selling just shy of 100million units ever since it launched back in 2013.
The exclusive games line-up Sony has offered PlayStation fans with the PS4 is arguably the reason why it’s sold so well.
The ‘For The Players’ tagline has lived up to its billing with so many must-have games on the PS4 right now.
From God of War, to Marvel’s Spider-Man, to Horizon Zero Dawn, to Bloodborne, to Persona 5 – the essential PS4 games list goes on and on and on.
But there is one PS4 exclusive that fans on the PlayStation soon won’t be able to purchase anymore.
In a post online Sony has revealed that DRIVECLUB will be delisted from the PS Store in a few months time.
PS4 fans will see DRIVECLUB, DRIVECLUB VR, DRIVECLUB Bikes as well as all DLC and season passes for those games taken off the PS Store.

After a number of updates from developer Evolution Studios, which was closed in 2016, DRIVECLUB turned into a quality, fun racing title.
