The driver returns to the screens, but not as a game. Ubisoft is preparing a series for a new platform

In addition to Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia, Ubisoft has at least one other brand in its pocket, which players repeatedly ask for to return, albeit a little less loudly. It’s Driver, an automotive action series that started its life in the era of the first PlayStation and last applied for a word in 2011 with Driver: San Francisco, not counting the handheld spin-off for the Nintendo 3DS, which is three years younger. .

Fan requests were heard at least half this time. The new game is not going to be planned, but a serial adaptation is being prepared. The brand has not lived properly for almost ten years, on the other hand, its story background for the series is perfect. The main character John Tanner is a former racer who became a detective with the New York Police. Bad linguists may say it’s like a plot from the 80’s, but Ubisoft’s goal is obviously popcorn fun, not some art.

The company targets the series directly to the gaming community. It is not created for massively expanded platforms such as Netflix or HBO, but for the as yet non-existent Binge service, which is to be launched next year and bring original series and shows for players.

Ubisoft’s head of film and television, Danielle Kreinik, said in a press release that it was important for the company to present established brands in new and exciting ways. According to her, working with Binge is a great way to bring Driver to the audience that is most interested in him. So we’ll see if the interest is big enough.
