The last we heard about Ubisoft's upcoming racing game The Crew was that it was being delayed from its expected next-gen launch release alongside Xbox One and PS4 until sometime later next year. According to new retail documents revealed by NeoGAF user dzelly, it appears that the game may now be surfacing in late August 2014. However, a quick look at the calendar reveals that 8/31/14 is actually a Sunday, which is typically not a day new games release on (with the exception of Nintendo titles), so it's possible it may just be a placeholder date for now. Still, Ubisoft has not confirmed any release date for The Crew officially, so take the news with a grain of salt in the meantime. Would you be disappointed if this ends up being true?
It wouldn't be Fall without a proper delay of one of Ubisoft's titles, would it? Of course not, and Ubisoft seems to agree as they announced that the highly anticipated Watch_Dogs and next generation racing exclusive, The Crew, will now be releasing in 2014. The delay is unfortunately a by-product of the fact that Ubisoft is projecting an 88 million dollar loss by the end of the fiscal year. Instead of the 1.94 billion they had expected to make, it is now projected that they will make around 1.38 billion instead. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guilletmot mentioned that the delay wasn't taken lightly, and that he wanted to secure the long-term viability of both franchises by ensuring that they receive as much polish as possible and debut at a high quality. In any case, Watch_Dogs' release has now been pushed forward at least four months into Spring 2014, whereas The Crew is being delayed until sometime between April and September. Are you disappointed by the delays for Watch_Dogs and The Crew?
Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsEarlier at Ubisoft's E3 press conference, they announced a new racing title called The Crew. It seems to be inspired by Need for Speed, but Ubisoft is touting that it has more variety of cars and vehicles in a persistent online open-world that is bigger than ever, referring to it as an "open-world playground" of sorts. In The Crew, you'll be able to take over a criminal organization one city at a time. A live demo was shown on stage which showed off the game's impressive graphics and draw distance. Also shown was the ability to strip away a car's parts and customize and rebuild it exactly as you want. The Crew is coming to Xbox One and PS4 early next year.
