It's been 18 months since we first heard that Ubisoft's studio in Newcastle, England was working on a new game in the Driver series. Today, Ubisoft reminded us that, despite this silence, the game is still in development.
It's a while off, though, with the publisher pegging the game for a fiscal year 2011 release, meaning it'll be out in April 2011 at the earliest.
The Driver series used to be a great piece of intellectual property, before Grand Theft Auto III came along and stole its thunder. The fact every game in the series after Driver 2 was awful didn't help, either.
Here's hoping this game can signal a return to form for the franchise, because sometimes, we don't want to get involved with internet dating and chicken-eating. We just want to drive.
