Evolution Studios may be no more, but we're still going to be treated to one final hurrah for the team with DriveClub VR being confirmed as a PlayStation VR title.

The news comes via a blog post on the official PlayStation blog in Japan, with Evolution Studios' former employee Paul Rustchynsky confirming its launch on Twitter - as well as confirming the existence of new tracks in DriveClub VR. It'll also feature 3D audio, and will be a full-priced release.

As a launch title, DriveClub VR will be out on October 13 alongside Sony's new peripheral. We had a brief look at DriveClub VR last October, and were impressed with what we saw - thanks to a neat trick employed by many VR devs, the game runs at 60fps which is then 'upscaled' to 120fps on the headset, making for a smooth experience.

Sony shuttered Evolution Studios back in March, though the team was soon absorbed by Codemasters where it's now working on an all-new multiplatform racing IP. Given how good DriveClub ended up being once its launch dramas were over, we can't wait to see what the team's up to next.
