The Crew 2 Scheduled To Launch On June 29th
Ubisoft has just announced the official launch date for their highly-awaited open-world driving MMO, The Crew 2 via a press release. The sequel to The Crew will simultaneously launch on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on June 29th, a few months later than its originally scheduled March 16 release date. What’s a few more months of waiting right?
“The Crew 2 will let players experience the thrill of American motorsports inside a fully redesigned USA. The game’s playground pushes physical boundaries to let driving and open world fans test their skills, solo or with friends, in nonstop competition and exploration. From coast to coast, drivers will explore America and compete to become the greatest motorsports champion, by collecting a wide variety of exotic cars, bikes, boats and planes, and dominating the motorsports scene on the land, on the water and in the air. Players will find challenges and inspiration among four different motorsports families: street racing, off-road, pro racing and freestyle, and will be given a broad set of options among a wide selection of vehicle types.”
Ubisoft first revealed The Crew 2 in March last year and had a release date set within a few months. Unfortunately, by December last year, Ubisoft announced that they will be pushing back the game’s launch, along with Far Cry 5 to give them more time to work on the game.
“In order to truly stand by our promise, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release date to between april/september 2018. While we’re excited to share the joys of Motornation with you as soon as possible, we don’t want to do so before the game is ready. This new window will allow us to deliver an experience that fulfils both our fans’ and our own quality expectations.”
Beta signups are still open on the official site if you want to try your luck. Fans can also pre-order the game for $59.99 for the Standard Edition, $69.99 for the Deluxe Edition, $99.99 for the Gold Edition, and $109.99 for the Motor Edition which includes a three-day head start and The Crew 2 swag items.
