It seems that way.
Even NEOGAF Sony insider FamousMortimer is convinced.

With this and Watch Dogs delayed until 2014, it looks like the PS4 will have an even more tepid launch line up than originally thought.

I really hope it's just a vicious rumour started by an Xbox fanboy. The main reason I have pre-ordered my PS4 was WatchDogs and free DriveClub, with a plan to get FIFA 14 at Xmas. now I'm getting a PS4 and nothing to do with it potentially!

More places are reporting it now than just NEOGaf. Still not confirmed but the silence from Sony says everything if you ask me.

PS4 exclusive titles are looking very sparse.

Same here. I'll have BF4 and was thinking about getting FIFA but after hearing how bad it is on current consoles, I'll maybe do without.

Well, more places are making a story out of it based on the NeoGaf info, and the silence from Sony means nothing really, but clearly the fact it wasn't playable at EGX lends some credence to the rumours.

-1 Ps4 exclusive isn't really that big a deal though, and as a new-IP and a driving game it's not going to be a huge system-shifter.

It was playable at EGX.

It will be a little disappointing if it is delayed, but bearing in mind many of us were essentially getting it for "free" anyway, and it will most likely be replaced with a different "free" game I can handle a little wait.

Sorry but if its not true Sony just have to put out a simple statement or tweet. I can imagine what is being discussed right now is whether can release anything of Driveclub.

When you go on stage and you put Driveclub as one of the main launch day releases it is a big deal when its delayed. Many people love their driving games and i'm sure some have pre-ordered on the fact they will have Driveclub. If you had a list as long as your arm of exclusive launch games then yes -1 isn't to bad. But when you had 3 to start with then -1 is a big deal

It wasn't really a full free game, so i can't see them giving out Knack or Killzone for free, I'm not sure what they're going to do if this is true, maybe a couple months of ps+ for free for every Subscriber?

It's always bad news when games get delayed,but hopefully they get a better game out because of this.

There are more than 3 exclusive launch game for PS3.

Of course, if you only count disk-based full-retail titles then you're right, but that's SO last-gen!

Bit of a bummer as it was one of the games I was looking forward to. It is difficult for a racer to not be enjoyable, so.

Added to that it was free! Resogun, free! All the F2P games! I was almost considering not buying a single game at launch.

Cassettes? Bah. Luxury. When I were a lad it took 12 hours to load pong from a 12-inch reel-to-reel tape. You don't know you're born.

Theres still Ubisofts game that was practically identical to Driveclub anyway, that Reflections are working on

Unless they are delaying that as well as Watchdogs.

I think Sony are trying to negotiate a replacement PS+ game.

Most likely. They aren't going to announce anything bad without something good to take the sting out of it.

If it is delayed, fully expect Sony to get hold of something decent to put on PS+ at least... whether thats enough to satisfy some I dont know

If anything, I think it'll be Knack as that's what's free with the PS4 in Japan when it's released

You seem to have insider knowledge, how feasible is a DC demo to cushion the blow?

I am very curious to know why games are being delayed so late. Though, did we even have a date for The Crew?

Surely they'd have known a long time ago that they just wouldn't be able to make the launch date - which begs the question of if it is the devs or the publishers wanting to maximise sales, perhaps they looked at pre-orders and thought we can do better than this outside of the crowded launch line-ups.
