Ubisoft has issued a statement regarding reviews for its upcoming social racing game The Crew, revealing press will not have access to the game until its December 2nd launch.
“While we totally understand (hey, we read reviews, too!), The Crew was built from the beginning to be a living playground full of driving fans, so it’s only possible to assess our game in its entirety with other real players in the world,” Ubisoft wrote, in part. “And by other, we mean thousands and thousands and thousands of players – something that can’t be simulated with a handful of devs playing alongside the press. For this very reason, The Crew will be available to media to begin their reviews when the game launches on December 2.”
“While we fully anticipate that you might see some reviews immediately at launch – largely built around the preview sessions we facilitated during the past months or the limited content of the closed and open betas – they won’t be based on optimal conditions or reflect the finished game.”
The Crew is scheduled to launch on December 2nd, for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC.
