Ubisoft announced that its film and television department is producing a movie based on driver intellectual property.
Like some other games in the series, it will focus on the former racer turned undercover detective John Tanner (John Tanner), who is working on the fight against criminal syndicates.
Since the franchise was established in 1999, eight driver games have been released, as well as five major installments. The last mainline game to land on the console was 2011’s “Driver: San Francisco”.
Binge is a free streaming platform that will be launched next year, and you will be able to watch Drive. It can be accessed on any device connected to the Internet.
Jason Altman, Danielle Kreinik and Genevieve Jones of Ubisoft Film & Television will serve as executive producers of the live-action series, alongside Binge producers Allan Ungar and Vincent Talenti as executive producers.
“Our mission at Ubisoft is to bring our games to life in new and exciting ways, and to create content that is set in the world, culture, and gaming community,”Help Danielle Kleinick, Ubisoft Television Development Director.
“Partnering with Binge will allow us to directly bring a series of drivers to viewers who are most enthusiastic about seeing this franchise.”
This is not the only show Ubisoft is producing. Netflix will launch The Division, Beyond Good & Evi and Assassin’s Creed shows based on the company’s IP.
Then, animation projects based on Splinter Cell, Far Cry and Captain Laser Eagle: Blood Dragon remix entered the streaming platform.
