The Crew 2 Delayed to Later in 2018

Ubisoft has announced a delay for The Crew 2.

The Ivory Tower-developed racing game will now launch sometime between April and September of next year. The team said the delay is so they can “deliver an experience that fulfils both our fans’ and our own quality expectations.”

The timing between now and the delay will also allow the team to perform additional playtests, gather player feedback, and continue working on delivering an ambitious open-world racing experience that meets both their own and players’ expectations.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


The newest iteration in the revolutionary franchise, The Crew® 2 captures the thrill of the American motorsports spirit in one of the most exhilarating open worlds ever created. Welcome to Motornation, a huge, varied, action-packed, and beautiful playground built for motorsports throughout the entire US of A. Enjoy unrestrained exploration on ground, sea, and sky. From coast to coast, street and pro racers, off-road explorers, and freestylers gather and compete in all kinds of disciplines. Join them in high-octane contests and share every glorious moment with the world.
