Ubisoft is teaming up with DC Comics to release a new comic book based on the Driver universe. It’ll be set between the cliffhanger ending of Driv3r and prior to the events that will unfold in the upcoming Driver: San Francisco, a going-back-to-roots effort by Ubisoft, scheduled to be released in Q1 next year.
“The Driver universe has always drawn heavy inspiration from Hollywood action movies,” said Martin Edmondson, creative director at Ubisoft Reflections. “When looking at how to present Tanner’s story leading into DRIVER San Francisco, doing a comic book was a perfect fit; we could tell the story in a gritty, hard-edged fashion using cinematic visuals and emotional set pieces, yet in a palatable and mainstream medium.”
The comic will be illustrated by Greg Scott (Gotham Central, Case Files: Sam and Twitch) and written by David Lapham (Stray Bullets, Sparta USA, Young Liars).
