New details about a never-before-seen and ultimately canceled Driver racing game have emerged. Unseen 64, a well-sourced sleuthing site, has dug up details on "Driver 5," a racing game in the works for a short time at Sonic & All-Stars Racing studio Sumo Digital.
Driver 5 reportedly entered pre-production around that time. Sumo, a third-party studio, previously worked on Driver '76 for the PSP, so the studio had an understanding of the series.
Driver 5 reportedly never made it out of pre-production, as Ubisoft chose to drop Sumo Digital as a partner and instead give the game to Ubisoft Reflections. That studio ultimately went on to make Driver: San Francisco.
Based on the concept art, it appears that Sumo's vision for Driver 5 was going to include destructible environments of some kind. That's not altogether surprising, as Sonic & All-Stars Racing also featured environments that fell apart over time.
