Today brings some bad news for fans of the Driver games. Word got out the the fifth installment in the series, Driver: San Francisco, has been pushed back to Ubisoft’s fourth quarter (January to March 2011).

This news was discovered when some super sleuths combed though Ubisoft’s estimated sales report. According to the report, Driver: SF has been pushed back in order to avoid the “competitive market at Christmas.”

Originally slated to arrive this November, Driver: SF marks a return to the classic style of gameplay. Martine Edmondson, founder of Ubisoft Reflections, stated, “What we’ve done… is very much go back to the roots of what made the original Driver game such a unique experience.”

How are you guys taking this delay? Are there any die-hard fans of the Driver series out there? Personally, I’ve never touched a Driver game; however, after researching it for this little news story, I must say I’m pretty excited. There is just something about the idea of having over 120 fully damageable licensed vehicles that gets me amped. Who knows, when Driver: SF finally comes out you may see me cruising around San Fran in a DeLorean DMC-12 like Marty McFly.

  1. As a die hard fan of the Driver series, I am sorely disappointed as this was my most anticipated game of the year.

    The Driver series is renowned as the pioneer for cinematic video game car chase – I plan on writing a retrospective set of features for the series next month.

    • I’m surprised Driver (PS1) is the only game to feature hubcaps that pop off and keep rolling from sharp turns. Minor details like this are what made Driver stand out. Ubisoft just might have a GTAIV killer in the making.

    I am a HUGE Driver and Delorean fan, 2 of my favorite things, so you can imagine how excited I was while watching the live E3 presetation and saw the Delorean in game! I am really sad it is getting pushed back, but that gives me time to play TDU2, and bug the Devs on their forums to include a Delorean in that game too!

    Anyway, I’ll bet they saw peoples dissapointment with not being able to get out on foot and walk around, so they might be including the feature for all we know?

    Anybody know where I can find a higher quality picture of this Driver wall paper showing a Delorean with its signature gullwing doors open and the words “Driver: San Fransisco”? I have fallen in love with it, but it is way too low quality for my 20 inch widescreen.
