Publisher Ubisoft has surprised us all with a quick mention of the next Driver game getting some spotlight treatment at this year's E3 in a release.

Rumoured for years they've just come out and said it'll be there, after total silence. They talk it up as a "blockbuster franchise", despite waning fandom.

"Video games exhibited at the Ubisoft booth will include the highly anticipated Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Shaun White Skateboarding, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier, the next iteration of the blockbuster franchise Driver, and many other titles that are yet to be announced," read Ubi's E3 press release, reports OXM.

So what can we expect from a new Driver that will inject much needed new life into the ailing series, which has suffered at the hands of others in the genre - including GTA?

I loved the first "Driver"...quirky, outrageous fun without the sometimes pace-destroying stories with GTA. The final titles in the franchise were bland however, so they'd have to pull the stops out on this one to attract one-time players.

Well, Driver's ressurection was always going to happen at some point, now is as good a time as any I guess! Looking forward to seeing the progress at E3.
