Driver: San Fran gets mysterious hold

Written by David Stellmack

Only the PC version, however
In what seems like a standard trend these days, Driver: San Francisco is now confirmed as delayed on the PC, while the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions will ship on their new scheduled date. Despite that we have been hearing over the last two weeks that the PC version would ship the same time as the console version, it apparently isn’t meant to be. There also will apparently not be a demo version for the PC release as previously provided for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.

The latest dates seem to now put the PC version for release in North America on September 27th and the European release for the PC version on September 30th.  It seems that while no one is really confronting this head on, the truth seems to lay some place between PC piracy and draconian DRM. If whispers are any indication, the best guess is that at least some of the delay is due to piracy problems on the PC and the reality that this hurts console sales.

Expect Ubisoft to give us all some additional information on the hold for the PC version, but it might not come till after the console versions ship.
