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.
