Yesterday on August, 22nd 2019, a YouTuber by the name of Nick Robinson made a fan petition to get a game called ‘Driver: San Francisco’ back on digital stores. The game was delisted on all digital platforms merely 5 years after release despite its positive reception.
If you’re not familiar with the game, it’s the fifth installment of the famous Driver series. It follows a unique mechanic where you’re able to take control of nearly any car on the map at any given point, and as often as you want.
Nick Robinson announced the petition when he uploaded a video titled ‘The best game Ubisoft won’t let you play’. In said video, he goes in-depth discussing why the game is so innovative and special to him personally. He also discusses the great lengths he went to in order to get his hands on a digital copy (Spoiler: he buys a Subway gift card), as well as his disappointment in Ubisoft for its delisting.
An Ubisoft representative even made an official statement on the matter:
“[Driver: San Francisco] has been delisted for a few years. A number of factors go evaluating to keep a game live including community support”
Robinson argues that this statement may imply enough support from fans can get this game back on digital stores. And to show your support, you can sign his petition here: https://www.change.org/p/ubisoft-put-driver-san-francisco-back-on-sale
