Ubisoft’s Driver: San Francisco has been delayed until 2011, according to the publisher’s financial statements just issued, citing “the competitive market at Christmas” as the principle reason for the unexpected retardation.
The game, which is being developed by Ubisoft’s Reflections studio, will be released during Ubisoft’s fourth financial quarter – between January 1st and March 31st next year. The game is due to be released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
In the same financial report, the publisher claimed sales of €160 million for their first quarter, with the 1.9 million sales of Splinter Cell: Conviction presumably to thank.
Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft’s Chief Executive Officer, said their sales performance this quarter “reflects the success of several titles and attests to the quality of our game catalog” and stated that it was “proof of Ubisoft’s ability to make its mark in an ever demanding video games sector.”
