Ubisoft’s upcoming racing game The Crew is not a next gen and PC exclusive. The developer mentioned that the title is now also headed to Xbox 360, however there was no mention of the PS3 or Wii U versions.
The Crew launches November 11 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, and PC. As for why this decision was taken by Ubisoft in bringing the game to a last-generation console, the publisher says it’s all about meeting gamers where they are, which honestly doesn’t make too much sense as PS3 and Wii U users weren’t accounted for.
“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.”
Ubisoft told GameSpot, “The Crew is originally built for the new generation of consoles, so when we made the decision to port it to the previous generation, we decided to focus solely on the platform closest to the new-gen’s technical infrastructure, which is the Xbox 360.”
“We are not currently working on a version for PS3 or Wii U and are focused on delivering The Crew for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Xbox 360 simultaneously on November 11.”
