The Crew is an online multiplayer-racing game which has a persistent open world environment. A persistent open world is a virtual world which exists and internally evolves & is available when players want to access it. The Crew has MMORPG elements with a free-roaming across a scaled-down version of a contagious United States. The game was developed by Ivory Tower & Ubisoft Reflects for Xbox, PlayStation 4 and PC & published by Ubisoft.
Though there is no official news or even highlighted rumours we can analyse the old releases and come to a conclusion about the development of Crew 3. The initial game was released back in 2015 with its development starting in 2012.
The game’s first beta version was released for PC by 2014 and then in the following months saw 3-4 beta testing of the game. The best part about Crew 2’s development and its eventual release was that Ivory Tower listened to the community and made appropriate changes in accordance with the criticism that they got from the players. The game’s development started just after the release of Crew and it makes sense if the Crew 3’s development is already underway.
Crew 2 was released in June 2018, with an announcement of a release in 2017. But the Crew 2 is to be released for Google’s new gaming platform called Stadia on March 25th, 2020. It might have slowed down the development of Crew 3.
Ivory Towers are unlikely to announce anything this year waiting on the eventual release of the next-gen platforms.
A year for the announcement phase and beta testing with not a single interview or spiled information, there is a high chance that the game might not be available before late 2022 or even 2023. We will keep you updated on all the latest information on the development of Crew 3.
