Ubisoft nabs Atari's Driver license, drops $24M in deal

Driver (Ubisoft)Atari has sold the rights to the Driver franchise to Ubisoft for roughly $24 million. The deal will be completed during Ubisoft's second fiscal quarter, which ends September 30, 2006, and includes the acquisition of developer Reflections Interactive Limited, along with most of the studio's assets.

Now the onus is on Ubisoft to steer this franchise out of the junkyard. Good luck.
