The Crew Delayed Until December
Ubisoft just announced
that their open-world racing title, The Crew
, has been pushed back until December 2. This is a delay of about one month from its projected release date of November 11. The reason for the delay is because they're going to implement some of the changes that the community has been most vocal about.
“We received a lot of valuable information from the recent PC and console betas,” says Creative Director Julian Gerighty. “We are now scrutinizing all of the player feedback so we can ensure that The Crew delivers the seamless open-world experience that meets everyone’s high expectations.” This ongoing process has already resulted in some substantial updates to the game, including everything from the option to fully remove the HUD so players can enjoy the scenery as they roam freely through a massive re-creation of the United States (a highly requested featured, Gerighty tells us), to fine-tuning the collisions to be even more realistic and adding in new visual effects. Other major enhancements include adjustments to the difficulty (for example, tweaking the police A.I.) and better integration of the voice chat – especially helpful when crewing up with other players.
Anybody that has played any of the betas will tell you that this delay is for the best.
