Driver: San Francisco’s PC Version Delayed
When we learned yesterday that the Driver: San Francisco demo was out on consoles, we began making plans (in spite of the always-on DRM) to try it out on PC once the demo launched. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. Even worse, we also learned that the PC version won’t launch until a few weeks after the console version does.
According to a report on Blue’s News, Ubisoft has informed them that not only will there not be a PC demo, the PC version won’t be released until Sept. 27. Console versions are still slated to hit stores on August 30. Mac gamers are even worse off, as no release date has been set for that platform.
It’s getting a bit tedious to see games release on consoles weeks and even months ahead of PC. In many cases, it’s supposedly to ‘combat piracy,’ but that doesn’t wash. It’s time companies realized what pretty much everyone else already knows: PC gaming isn’t going anywhere, and there’s a huge market here. Unreasonable restrictions or silly delays won’t endear you to PC communities at all.
