Sony has had plenty of success with its games so far and the ones which technically flopped are rare. Unfortunately there is one that failed to live up to its hype, Sony’s Driveclub.

After disappointing the first time out, Driveclub could be getting a second chance under a new name – Sony Driveclub VR. A recent post at the Japanese PlayStation Blog hinted at a possible release of the game alongside the PSVR headset though it was conspicuously removed not long after.

New features but how many cars and tracks?

Regardless, a former employee for Evolution Studios named Paul Rustchynsky provided new details via Twitter on Sony Driveclub VR, Slash Gear reported.

According to Rustchynsky, Sony Driveclub VR will have new tracks with the VR release and include an impressive cockpit view as well as realistic 3D audio.

It was not mentioned how many cars or tracks would actually be included or how it would improve on the original game. Being a VR-capable game, the successor is expected to be a whole lot better with the PSVR in tow.

Worth noting as well would be the group behind the game. Evolution Studios was shut down by Sony earlier this year meaning a new group will be tasked to improve on the shortcoming of the racing game.

Curiously, Rustchynsky addressed those concerns as well by claiming that the developing team will be the same ones behind the original via NeoGAF. He could be referring to Codemasters who took in the developers from Evolution Studios.

Driveclub debuted back in 2014 for the PS4 but was hounded with several issues which was one of the reasons behind Evolution Studios’ demise.

Either way, Sony Driveclub VR should be an interesting game to watch out for as it tries to revive lost confidence following a bust debut in 2014.
