The Crew is Also Coming to Xbox 360, No Mention of PS3 or Wii U Yet

Ubisoft’s aspiring title The Crew is now headed to Xbox 360 and no longer remains exclusive to PC,PS4 and Xbox One.

Why this sudden change of mind? Well, according to Ubisoft’s press release they want to meet customer needs who haven’t shifted to current-gen platforms yet:

“SAN FRANCISCO – August 13, 2014 – Today, Ubisoft® announced that The Crew™ is coming November 11 to the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft in addition to Xbox One, video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. The 2014 Game Critics Awards Best Racing Game of E3, The Crew is a revolutionary action-driving MMO that takes gamers on a wild ride throughout a massive open world recreation of the United States, filled with exciting challenges and populated by other real players.”

“It’s Ubisoft’s objective to continue to meet the needs of consumers who have not yet made the move to the new console generation,” Ubisoft marketing executive Tony Key said. “The Crew was originally built for the new generation of consoles, but we have always had a desire to make it accessible to as many people as possible. We’re excited to bring The Crew’s same core features, massive scope, mission variety, and overall driving experience to Xbox 360 players.”

Strangely there was no mention of a PS3 or Wii U version of the game. The Xbox 360 version of The Crew is in development at Asobo Studio, with help from Ubisoft’s offices at Ivory Tower, Ubisoft Reflections, and Ubisoft Shanghai.

In addition, Ubisoft also announced a Closed beta for the game starting late September on PS4 and Xbox One and details regarding the beta will be revealed later.

How a game as massive as The Crew will turn out on Xbox 360 hardware will be interesting to see. Fortunately we won’t have to wait too long as the game is set for a Nov. 11 release.
