Driver: San Francisco PC delayed

Driver: San Francisco PC delayed

The PC version of Driver: San Francisco has been delayed by nearly an entire month.

Ubisoft has announced that it has delayed the release of upcoming racing game, Driver: San Francisco, by nearly an entire month.

The PC version of Driver: San Francisco will now launch on 30 September, after being pushed back from 2 September. The Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game will adhere to this original release date.

Ubisoft hasn't given a specific reason for the delay, but we have contacted the publisher for comment.

Unveiled at E3 2010, Driver: San Francisco continues the plot of the critically slammed Driv3r, but updates the gameplay with a new 'Shift' ability that lets players instantly jump from one car to another.

We went hands on with Driver: San Francisco's multiplayer portion late last month, greatly approving of Driver's furious Tag mode.

Check out our Driver: San Francisco preview for more information on the game, or check out the trailer below for a quick glimpse of the action.

A whole month just to take out the DRM out of the game? That's alot of time :P

So they said "bare in mind the PC version is being released at the same time as the console versions" as some kind of response to negative feedback to this game having their wonderful DRM. Then they delay it.

Also.. no wheel support? no PC demo? no thanks.

I do. I can wait a month for the graphically superior version and the one that allows me to use my Sidewinder Force Feedback wheel.

If they allow the use of a wheel, rather than just a 360 pad, and if it's graphically superior and well tuned, rather than a poor-effort console port and if Ubisoft were actually serious about the PC (or any dev, for that matter) they wouldn't keep pulling this "Oh, yeah, it'll come out at the same time on all platforms!" The a few weeks later... "Uh... did we say that? We lied. We do that, you know. We lie. A lot. Like we lie when we say we actually care about the PC as a platform. Take home message: don't believe us, we lie, we like screwing you over. Give us your money."
