Ubisoft has proclaimed a postponement in the launch of its car-teleporting reboot Driver: San Francisco, this fall, explaining that it will not be unveiled before 2011.
The proclamations were made according to the company’s sales estimates in the quarter of the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010.
The publisher explained that the biggest cause for the delay is the excessive competition observed in the market. It explained that the driver was well checked by the developers, following its first introduction at E3.
Ubisoft also shared that its first-quarter sales increased by 93%, crediting a firm entrance for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction as well as the performance of preceding titles like Just Dance and Assassin's Creed II.
Ubisoft released a statement today as part of its sales report for their first quarter of the current fiscal year, suggesting that Driver: San Francisco will not be unveiled in the latter half of 2010, but in the earlier half of 2011.
The average sales for the first-quarter of 2010-11 went beyond the expected approximations.
Yves Guillemot, Chief Executive Officer said, “Our sales performance this quarter reflects the success of several titles and attests to the quality of our game catalog”.
