As a longtime fan of the series, the announcement of Driver: San Francisco (the next generation debut and the first Driver game since 2006) had me beaming with uncontrollable excitement and anticipation. It was all set to come hammering around the next 90 degree corner just in time for the Christmas period too, but was sadly stopped and impounded for dangerous driving. Apparently it will take until the early part of 2011 for it to be released, much to my dismay.
Fear not however, as Gamer Limit will soon be embarking on an extended road trip alongside the Wheelman, starting from the series roots in Newcastle before stopping by at Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Havana, Las Vegas, Rio de Janeiro, Nice and Istanbul. Yes, that’s right - Driver will be getting the full retrospective treatment over the next month or so, reliving all the highs and lows from its glorious inception in 1999 through to its critically panned modern-day instalments.
At any rate, Driver: San Francisco‘s intentions are clear: you can tell they are wanting to get the series back on track and back to its roots just by looking at its artwork shown above, courtesy of my lovingly crafted timeline.
