Ubisoft Announces That The Crew Will Come To Xbox 360, But Not Wii U

Today, Ubisoft announced that The Crew is coming on November 11th to Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, in addition to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. Named “Best Racing Game” of E3 2014 by the Game Critics, 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, full 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,” said Geoffroy Sardin, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft. “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.”

Asobo Studio is leading development of The Crew for Xbox 360 with support from the teams at Ivory Tower, Ubisoft Reflections and Ubisoft Shanghai. Ubisoft announced that after the closed beta on PC that took place in July and will resume again on August 25th, a limited number of players will be invited to participate in a closed beta for Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 starting in late September. Exact dates and further details on this closed beta period will be communicated at a later time.

  1. You know what? While we at it, why don’t you simply introduce the tag #BUT NOT WII U next to any future articles like this one? That way it will be so much easier for everyone to find them at one place

    1. That’s not Sickr’s fault. The Crew is coming out on current gen consoles; the Wii U is current gen and it’s not getting it. Seems perfectly fine to me.

          1. Have you ever considered the fact that bringing awareness that the Wii U is not getting these games a potential good thing? Doing so can hopefully spur fans into taking action and asking devs for these games. Even if they say no others will notice that there is demand for such a game (which is why posting a wide variety is important because everyone has different tastes in genres) and may take action.

            1. Give me at least ONE example of Ubisoft ever listening to fans and porting it over to wherever the fanboy voices are loudest. One. If you can’t, your whole comment is irrelevant

        2. well sickr , can I ask you a favour by listing all the games for which has been announced this year but skipped the Wii U? Personally I think it will be a good overview of games and developers who avoid the Wii U. Now I see some coming and whiging about bringing bad news, but personally there are 90% of these games I don’t want to play and i am sure i am not the only one. Furthermore people will release there is a lot of crap games and won’t be so down after.

        1. the xbox one isn’t selling much better anymore than the wii u and on top of that the wii u has the larger install base… why exactly is it a good decision to bring the game to the XBO but not to the wii u?

          was it a good decision to delay rayman legends to the time of the year where most heavy hitters (GTA 5 among them) are released and subsequently see the game, which certainly deserved better, crash and burn?

          ubisoft have made some ineffably stupid decisions in the past

          they’ve shown that not every shit they take is solid gold so don’t suggest that’s the case

      1. * Less than millions.

        Btw, why should you care? those games were on the Wii U at least be grateful for that.

        Also you shouldn’t blame Ubisoft for the delays, Microsodt has a policy that forces multiplatform games to be realeased around the same time…

        P.S Nintendo delays their games all the time yet you seek to only hate Ubisoft for something that wasn’t even their fault?!?!

          Microsoft policy my ass because PlayStation should’ve been applied too and get theirs later Oh wait…no its not.

          Delay what? Pikmin 3? That’s like the only few Nintendo games I heard and know they delayed to improve the quality. Look at Watchdogs. Delayed for the same reason, yet still looks like shit compare to what was promised 2 years ago. You can’t punch anyone which is pathetic for a 2014 sandbox/GTA ripoff, the customization is a joke, the choice/consequences system was wasted, driving mechanic blows and story is comparable to Twilight books: its boring.

            2. This is yet another racing game this year a lot like Forza, NFS, Project Cars, Gran Turismo and such that hardly offers any significant fun factor or difference. Its another open world racer and I rather buy Burnout Paradise for that.

What about Ubisoft pointlessly delaying Rayman from launch when it was the starting point of the fanbase turning away all for nothing when they finally launched it and lost many sales thanks to GTA5 or WB gimping Arkham Origins or the studios that gimped 90% of Sniper Elite 2 for Wii U and tried to sell it for $60, 60 fucking dollars?!

  17. I’ve played the beta, and the car controls feel like Watchdogs. IE: Very bad.

    But with that criticism out of the way, this is NOT good for Nintendo. Nintendo needs to be going to these publishers and developers and convincing them to port their games to the system.

    You can not care about The Crew, or Watchdogs, or whatever… but the bottom line is, they well. Just like crappy Call of Duty, they sell systems, even if the games are mediocre at best.

    A system without third party support will always suffer. Look at the Vita, or the Wii U, or the Gamecube, or the Saturn. Without a broad library of games… not just 1st and 2nd party titles… a system can’t get on top.

    I love the Wii U. It’s a fantastic piece of kit. But Nintendo really let it down, and I don’t see enough change to think this software issue will get better anytime soon, even if Nintendo has ramped up 1st party game production.

    1. “Without 3rd party, systems will always suffer” …it seems Nintendo portables have done just fine without them and the only few reasons Vita failed because of its lack of ads, expensive memory cards, lack of original games at first and nothing but gimped PS3 ports.

  18. When are you gonna stop posting articles about games that aren’t coming to Wii U? That’s not Nintendo news. It would be Nintendo News if it was a game series that normally appears on Nintendo Consoles, let’s say Assassins Creed (since 2 came to Wii U), and a game in that series doesn’t come to Wii U (Unity) THAT Would be worth reporting. Not this.
