Ubisoft: The Crew has 12M players, The Crew 2 is on the way

During its quarterly investor call today, Ubisoft announced that its working on a sequel to racing MMO The Crew. “In 2017-18 we will see the exciting returns of Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, The Crew and South Park,” the company said, following it up with a forum post confirming that The Crew 2 is indeed on the way.

If that startles you, consider Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad’s takeaway from the call:

We suspect the massive one-month-free-to-play push last September had something to do with it too.

Very surprising numbers, but good to hear! The Crew is an underrated gem.

Sure the driving is a bit loose and arcadey, more San Francisco Rush than Gran Turismo, but it was very rewarding to drive around Ubi’s mini-USA. I had more fun in Crew than I ever had with Horizon 3, and I am a big fan of Turn 10’s racers.

Let’s see a EuroCrew, I’ll buy it!

Glad to hear this. I play The Crew every now and then, and it’s always fun. Looking forward to the sequel.

Another one of those games that I only play occasionally but one I know that I will have fun with and always be smiling when I close it down.

In terms of getting a lot of copies out there fast, it’s not just the Uplay PC game-per-month thing, but also it was given out as part of Xbox’s Games with Gold program on Xbox One, I know I got a copy of The Crew that way.

The game given out en-mass on both PC and Xbox One would I assume count for quite a few copies all up.
I don’t know if it was ever part of PS+.

Still, it’s an impressive number regardless and it’s always good to see a new IP do well.

Damn, been a while since I played The Crew, I didn’t realize it was successful enough for a sequel. That’s pretty rad though.

I should jump back in to drive around the countryside more, the game can be super relaxing.

I played this terrible game for about 5 minutes. I’m glad to see the childhood population of 5 year olds are still keeping this game going…

Lol…I can only imagine the write up you would give us with your whole 5 mins of play time.

It would be better it you had airboats to glide through the wilds on instead of a high performance race car… Just saying
