A senior games industry source has confirmed to MCV the name of the new entry in the Driver series that Ubisoft will be unveiling at E3 next week – Driver: San Francisco.
The moniker is not a huge surprise. A teaser video released earlier this week hinted that San Francisco – a big feature of the very first Driver game – would indeed be the location of the new outing.
It was also reported earlier this year that Ubisoft had registered the domain driversanfranciscogame.com.
The west coast US setting is an understandable choice for the game, with its assortment of steep slopes, iconic cable car system and the likes of recognisable prison Alcatraz offering up a great range of options for developer Ubisoft Reflections to work with.
Expect more details next week.
