Then, there’s another video posted below, courtesy of GameFront, which shows how shift can be used in multiplayer. Driver is out September 1 in Europe, September 2 in the UK, and September 6 in the US.

Ubisoft has taken to Twitter to announce Driver: San Francsico will be released in the US on September 6 instead of August 30. The date was changed due to “shipping considerations and getting the best exposure in North America,” and had nothing to do with its production. Apparently, this was revealed a few days ago, and we’re just now noticing it. Sorry for that. The game will still release on September 1 in Europe and September 2 in the UK as scheduled. Thanks, EvAv.

As you can see on Ubi’s site, Reflections’ first Driver game is making its way to PSN on August 14. That’s next week.
The PSone game’s going to priced at €4.99 and has to be worth that. We binned many a merry hour being chased by police cars back in the day, so hopefully time hasn’t been too cruel.

It would be fair to say we’ve never seen anything like this. Following what appears to be the release of a BBC video confirming the development of a new Driver game at Reflections in Newcastle, Ubisoft has issued a statement Yves Guillemot made in 2006 along with a note saying, “Nothing more specific than this has been said.”
“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 Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft.
The Frenchman made the statement when it was announced that Ubisoft would acquire Reflections.
Putting two and two together to make 15, it appears the BBC has announced a new Driver game completely out of the loop of Ubisoft “officialdom”.
More soon, no doubt.

Update: Ubisoft’s properly saying nothing.
The BBC’s posted video from a tour of Ubisoft Reflections in Newcastle, claiming the company is “working on a whole new version” of Driver.
The footage then shows cars being modelled and characters being built for cut-scenes.
The quote comes from the start of this video. We’ve just spoken to Ubisoft about this and PR claims it knows nothing about it at all. The company declined to make a comment.
This second video shows more footage from the studio in a story on the British industry struggling in the face of foreign tax cuts and, again, says that the studio is working on “the latest version of a popular driving game”, but shows footage of Emergency Heroes.
“Phone calls” are being made, apparently.
