Ubi Closes Acquisition Of Driver Franchise

Today Ubisoft announced that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of the intellectual property and technology rights to the Driver franchise. In the past few years the franchise has been going steadily downhill with Driv3r 3 been the series low point. The recent release of Parallel Lines tried to boost the franchise but was more or less unsuccessful. Here is hoping that the purchase can help can living things up. It is also thought that Driver’s technology will have a positive effect on the full range of Ubisoft games.
