Update: We told you an announcement was imminent, and it looks like it’s coming on 31st January, 2023. The official account for arcade racer The Crew has effectively confirmed that a sequel will be revealed at 9AM PST/5PM GMT, presumably for PS5 (and potentially even PS4 as well). We’ll of course bring you all the news, as it breaks.
Original Article: There’s no question that arcade racers are one of PlayStation’s weak points right now. The console brand, famous for the likes of Ridge Racer and WipEout in its early years, has been without a significant sideways car game for some time. The latest Need for Speed, Unbound, is decent – but Microsoft and Nintendo still hold the crown, with Forza Horizon 5 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe respectively. Sony doesn’t have an answer.
While the third game in The Crew series – strongly rumoured to be called The Crew Motorsport – will almost certainly be multiformat, it’s got a shot at filling the void. The Crew 2, maligned at launch, actually has retained a large and dedicated community, thanks to plenty of post-release updates and an enormous, multi-faceted open world. It looks like developer Ivory Tower will build on that soon, with the next title in the series.
