Driver 3 Delayed
Infogrames has announced that Driver 3 is no longer scheduled for a holiday 2003 release and that it will instead ship in spring 2004. Apparently, the development team asked for more time to ensure the quality of the game, as it would haved lacked polish with the previous release date.
"Driver 3 is a complex game that comes with amazingly high expectations," said Martin Edmondson, managing and development director of Reflections Interactive. "It is important to both Reflections Interactive and Atari to dedicate the time and resources necessary to ensure that Driver 3 meets our own goals for exciting gameplay and next-gen performance laid out by our ambitious design document. Reflections has asked Atari for more time to make sure Driver 3 has only the highest production values from start to finish in all facets of the game. Atari is happy to help us do whatever it takes to redefine the genre that the Driver series created."
