Following on from 2014’s open-world racing game The Crew, publisher Ubisoft has now announced a sequel – The Crew 2.
We don’t know much about the new game so far, apart from that fact it’s called The Crew 2 and will be released at some point in the next year. Oh, and also the logo.
It was revealed as part of Ubisoft’s 2017 fiscal year earnings report, so we can presume it will be released by the end of the current fiscal year – March 2018.
The game’s official Twitter account then shared the logo and said: “Beyond the road… stay with us for more high-octane thrills.”
With this, we can assume the new game may focus a bit more on off-road driving and racing, in a similar way to the hints we’ve had for the next Need for Speed game.
So, we’ll have to wait and see what else is revealed in the coming months, but it’s certainly good news for racing gamers that The Crew 2 will arrive fairly soon (for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC we imagine).
There’s also the question of where it’ll be set, with the original – reportedly played by over 12 million online players – having a vast (but scaled down, obviously) open-world recreation of the USA.
A few people have suggested Europe which would make some sense with Ubisoft being a French game publisher, and they’ve already covered the US.
Expect to hear more about The Crew 2 at Ubisoft’s E3 conference on the 12 June, where we will probably get our first details of the game.
