New Driver To Hit The Gas In FY 2010-2011

Ubisoft's latest press release detailing their performance targets for Q3 has revealed that a new Driver title will be revving its engine some time in 2010-2011.
The franchise has been subjected to a lukewarm reception pretty much across the board, with Parallel Lines, the last game for PS2 and Xbox, failing to garner much critical praise.
Ubisoft acquired the rights to Driver from Atari in August 2006, but little solid info has emerged since. Only an unfounded rumour surrounding the apparent trademarking of a title, Driver: The Recruit last year.
The press release mentions Driver as a part of Ubisoft's 2010-2011 line-up alongside Ghost Recon 4 and PoP: The Forgotten Sands.
We hope to see a fresh start for the stagnant franchise in the form of a total reboot. That sound? It's the rumour mill grinding into action.
