Driver: San Francisco
New Driver To Hit The Gas In FY 2010-2011

Ubisoft's latest press release detailing their performance targets for Q3 has revealed that a new Driver title will be revving its engine some time in 2010-2011.

The franchise has been subjected to a lukewarm reception pretty much across the board, with Parallel Lines, the last game for PS2 and Xbox, failing to garner much critical praise.

Ubisoft acquired the rights to Driver from Atari in August 2006, but little solid info has emerged since. Only an unfounded rumour surrounding the apparent trademarking of a title, Driver: The Recruit last year.

The press release mentions Driver as a part of Ubisoft's 2010-2011 line-up alongside Ghost Recon 4 and PoP: The Forgotten Sands.

We hope to see a fresh start for the stagnant franchise in the form of a total reboot. That sound? It's the rumour mill grinding into action.

Game 1: you drive
Game 2: you can walk around and in your shadow there's a gun
Game 3: you get a gun!

I loved the first Driver. Drive 2 sucked. Driver 3, it was a joke.

I'm with you guys all the way. The first Driver was actually a driving game. It never gets old. To this day I will pull it out when I just want to drive! Driver 2 and 3 were just GTA ripoffs.

I still remember ramming the car to the bridges that open up. Sometimes it would glitch causing the car to game....interested to see what they will do.

I'm really looking forward to this. Driver 3 was one of my favourite PS2 games, and I also liked every other driver (Except number 4, which I haven't tried.

I remember spending quite some hours on the first one of the serie but not paying any attention to the other ones... If they make a new one I just one they are not gonna rip off GTA... We'll see what it's worth once more info are available...
