Driver: San Francisco
Driver: San Francisco Wheelspins Into US Stores on August 30th

Ubisoft has announced a US release date for the next instalment in the Driver franchise, which sees Tanner hitting the gritty streets of present day San Francisco in an array of the most desirable muscle and sports cars known to man.

After a nasty accident, protagonist John Tanner finds himself unwittingly stuck in a coma, able to shift between cars at will, which means if you're not happy with the rusty mess you're driving you can simply soar through the air like a ghost and instantly leap into any car you like. If only real life were like that.

Driver: San Francisco will be arrested and thrown into the US retail slammer on August 30th, 2011. Hopefully this means that the European release date will follow suit, which would make the EU launch land on September 2nd, 2011. Look out for a fresh Driver: San Francisco preview next week.

Loved the driver series. After Driv3r, it just got boring. But I'm glad they're focusing on the aspect of the first one. I just want to know if the cars go flying when you hit the underside of them. XD

"After a nasty accident, protagonist John Tanner finds himself unwittingly stuck in a coma, able to shift between cars at will..."

How exactly does that work?

2nd of September? Day after my birthday. Score!
Let's just hope it's more like the original Driver and not like Driv3r...

nice! not too long to wait then, quite looking forward to this, as long as it's more like driver 1 than the rest of the series.

'Which means if you're not happy with the rusty mess you're driving you can simply soar through the air like a ghost and instantly leap into any car you like.'

Huh..What....This sounds like more of a mind fuck than an assassins creed ending, Whats wrong with Ubisoft and having a normal game lol.

Tbh i dunno what to make of this game now after reading that, hopefully some vids and interviews will change my mind cuz i was really looking forward to it, brings back the memories of playing the first mission on the original driver about 20 times before starting the actual game, as i utterly failed at it, those good ol' days.

To be honest, I would have rather they just said "Look, we're not gonna explain it, but we don't want you to be able to walk around. That would just make for another abhorrent gaming experience like Driv3r, so instead you're gonna be able to jump from one car to the other and just suspend your disbelief for a while".

You're in a coma? and you can shift between cars at your whimsy? Yikes.
