Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends|
July 3, 2012
Test Drive is a series of racing video games. Originally published by Accolade, which was later bought by Infogrames, the first game was released in 1987 and has since been followed by several sequels and spin-offs, the last of which was released in 2012.
It was reported in December 2016 that French publisher Bigben Interactive acquired the Test Drive intellectual property from Atari, Inc., with plans to re-boot the franchise. In 2018, Bigben announced the acquisition of French game developer Kylotonn Games, with Roman Vincent, president of Kylotonn suggesting they were working on the next installment of Test Drive.
In Test Drive, the player typically uses one of several exotic performance cars to race to a finish line against opponents or in a time limit, while avoiding traffic and police.
