Though Driver 76 is being developed by its original developers, Reflections, now they have company from Sumo Digital, renowned developers of racing games.
Ubisoft has revealed some features of Driver 76. The game is a two year prequel to Driver Parallel Lines. Set in 1976 Driver 76 has Hollywood-style car chases. However it also lets the player experience the scenario on open foot. The game has 27 new missions, which are divided into 6 plots. The player can also earn cash to modify their vehicles by completing side jobs. The game will have a realistic 70’s New York city setting complete with an authentic 70’s soundtrack.
