Ubisoft has bought Atari’s Driver series for $24 million dollars, they got not only the intellectual properties, and technological rights to the Driver series, but also all of the Reflections Interactive Limited staff, and most of their assets. I reckon it’ll take at least until 2007, until we see the next game in the series.
“We are thrilled with this acquisition which will allow us to add a prestigious title to our catalog and to enter into the driving games segment, one of the most important segments in the gaming industry. With more than 14 million units sold throughout the world, Driver is one of the most successful brands in the history of video games. We look forward to leveraging the unique knowledge of the Ubisoft studios to ensure that Driver will be one of the leading brands of the next generation of consoles,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer of Ubisoft.
