Ubisoft are working on there next title which will be released in April, "Emergency Heroes".

It's another title produced by Ubisoft Reflections. Maybe this is why the announcement for the next driver title is taking so long.

Unfortunately the game doesn't seem to much like the driver series. But appears to contain a more freeform style of gameplay from what I have read.

See (below) for more information.

So I hope you enjoy this amazing announcement!
Feel free to discuss this as much as you can in here!

EDIT: removed April fools joke!

This is truly great news, finally Reflections long hard work is revealed for eager fans. And then you show me "Emergency Heroes" for the wii...

But really, can you get out of your vehicle and walk around, cause if you can't, I wouldn't buy it, even if I had a nintendo wii, which I don't.

Looks really really stupid if you ask me. It looks like a kid's game to me. Despite the content rating, I guess I'll buy it, only if the price on it is low.

Do you think this game might have a bonus video in the pause menu that will be a preview to the next Driver game? In Stuntman 1, there's a short video in the front-end menu of Driv3r being shown for the first time as a preview of Driv3r.

One thing I don't like about it (according to the announcement) is that it will take place in a fictional place. I want real places in any driving game. San Alto isn't a real city. It looks somewhat like a city in Southern California (like Los Angeles or San Diego). I hope this isn't a "Sign" that of where the next Driver game will take place (being in a fictional place).

Also, I really dont like the cars from the screen shots we see. They look a bit to far out there and just look way to futeristic. Also, E10+ hmm meens not as much violence or swearing ( all the makings of a good shooting/driving game). Perhaps they were trying to get away from the GTA type of game. But this is to far away. They are making a game that is not even T and that in my mind is just not right I also do not want to be driving around in a fake place. It sceems that they just left the total idea of the orginal driver behind and started from scratch. Lets hopw that is is ALOT better than it looks. I for one am very dissopointed by this one from what I have sceen so far.

Yeah the DPL NYPD car was in it too, good use of a fairly generic cop car XD

Anyways, I might try that game just to see how bad it is lol. I do have to say, in a few scenes that police car (futuristic looking one) riminted me on the Zenda from PL.

EDIT: If you pause at the part of the Ram Raider scene where it's close to the camera, you can barely make out "New York" on the plate. T.K.'s been on the move! lol

well it still looks very studid to much like a childs game. 7+? Soo that meen what no swearing? No violence? This looks like its going to suck. I really wish that atari kep the game. Because now the game is just going to be screwed up.

Bust also, could it be possible that maybe another one is in the works to the Xbox and PS's. They have only said that this one will be for WII. Maybe another one is in the works ( a better one) for the othey systems

Well Midnight Club 3 was rated E10+, and that was still a good game. But I agree, if was T or M rated, I think it would be better.

Looks like DPL set in the future, anime style. Not too bad, a bit cheesy at the end. Worth a look if it's also on PS2.

Reflections didn't develop it, did they? NOWHERE does it say "DRIVER" in the title.

because it still looks like they have ruined the name of driver

why couldn't they just make something as successful as stuntman 1

(by the way i am aware of THQ buying the stuntman game/name lol)

Actually, THQ is abandoning the Stuntman series due to lacking big sales.

Stuntman 1 did good in sales enough to make part 2. The only thing about stuntman, it didn't offer enough freedom to go anywhere you wanted.

This game, Emergency Heroes(EH) gives that freedom, but from the look of it, no option to go on foot.

More than likely, I'll pass on it for GTA4, and hopefully Driv4r in the next year or two...

Looking over the new game i noticed somthing. This looks like a rip off of the Rescue Heros show. Just looks very simmilar

It's definitely a departure from the Driver series, but I wouldn't take that to mean Reflections aren't working on other games too. Nothing to announce yet though.

Well IGN recently interviewed Ubisoft Reflections about Emergency Heros!

Well I did sneak in a little D76 and a bit of Parallel Lines and Driver, Driver 2 (But it wasn't for too long) Damn! Busyiness.
