'The Crew' (ALL) Gets Delayed

by Rainier on Oct. 15, 2013 @ 2:38 p.m. PDT

The Crew takes you and your friends on a reckless ride inside an open-world re-creation of the U.S. With a lot of content and tailored for the connected generation, The Crew redefines action-driving.

Participate in a ride to infiltrate and overtake the 510s, a gang involving Detroit's illegal street racers. Your plan is to race underground to build a reputation and then sabotage their activities across the U.S. Maneuver through New York City and Los Angeles, cruise down Miami Beach or trek through the plateaus of Monument Valley. Each location has a set of surprises and driving challenges. On your journey, encounter other players on the road, who can be worthy companions or future rivals.

The Crew, previously planned for release in fiscal year 2013-14 (Q1 2014), is now scheduled for 2014-15 (Q2 2014).

"Our long term goal is to win the next generation. The tough decisions we are taking today to fully realize the major potential of our new creations have an impact on our short-term performance. We are convinced that, longer term, they will prove to be the right decisions both in terms of satisfaction for our fans and in terms of value creation for our shareholders. We are building franchises that will become perennial pillars of Ubisoft’s financial performance. In a context of growing successes for mega-blockbusters, the additional time given to the development of our titles will allow them to fulfill their huge ambitions and thus offer players even more exceptional experiences” stated Ubisoft co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot.

He concluded “Fueled by strong momentum for PlayStation 4 and XboxOne, calendar 2014 will see the return of growth to the console market. Combined with the quality of our line-up and our strong financial situation, this growth will allow us to achieve record operating income in fiscal 2014-15 and 2015-16."

Key Features:

  • Never Drive Alone: Build your crew of four through bonding or intense rivalry.
  • Unprecendented Scope and Variety: The entire U.S. is your driving playground. Every type of terrain available is yours to master, from downtown streets and race tracks to cornfields, canyons and desert dunes.
  • The Experience Continues: Continue the experience on iOS, Android devices, and on the web to tinker with your ride or send your crew on jobs to gain more XP and parts.
  • Prepare for the Next Job: A tuning system allows you to collect parts and customize licensed cars.
