Ubisoft announce The Crew sequel

A sequel to The Crew has been officially announced by Ubisoft and is slated for release worldwide in early 2018.

Ubisoft last night announced a sequel to the 2014 online racing title The Crew.

The Crew 2, developed by Ivory Tower, a Ubisoft studio in Lyon, France, will see players race across a fully redesigned open-world USA.

A variety vehicles will be available including cars, bikes, boasts and even airplanes giving each player the chance to become the Motorsport Champion.

“Today’s American motorsports scene has given us the perfect breeding ground for an all-new project,” said Ahmed Boukhelifa, Ivory Tower Studio Managing Director.

“Our team has emerged with an exciting new ambition and vision for The Crew franchise and we expect The Crew 2 to continue to push the boundaries of the genre and deliver on the dream of a truly boundless driving experience.”

Some of the locations included in the open world include the snowcapped Rocky Mountains, the backstreets of New York City, the Mississippi River and the Grand Canyon.

There will also be four different motorsport families; street racers, pro racers, off-road experts and freestylers, each of which have their own unqiue headquarters where players can meet, buy, collect and customize their vehicles.

The first screenshots were also released, as shown below, as well as the first trailer, shown above.

The Crew 2 will be released worldwide in early 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
