John Tanner hasn’t been a character in the Driver series of video games since 2004. Parallel Lines and 76 followed two other characters in their own storyline. At the end of Driv3r Tanner was in a hospital bed after being shot in the back by mobster Chris Jericho and its intuited that he might have died or not.
The latest ad for Driver: San Francisco briefly reminds you of that as Tanner tries his hand at various driving skills in an empty parking garage.
Driver: San Francisco will be available on multiple platforms from Nintendo Wii, and PC to Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Consoles will see the game on September 6th, 2011 and PC won’t see it until September 27th.
