Ubisoft May Be Working On A New Racing Game, Titled The Crew

Ubisoft have been keeping a game under wraps for a while, only mentioning it's existence in investor reports - and we think we know what it is.

It's been claimed that the new title is called "The Crew", and is a racing game in the same vein as Gran Turismo and Forza...

This game is reportedly being developed by Ivory Tower, a studio with a strong history in racing games, along with a team of former Eden Games employees. Previous works from the developers include Need for Speed, V-Rally, and Test Drive Unlimited.

There are a few clues beyond that, such as a job offer on their site, which says:

"working exclusively with Ubisoft, the Ivory Tower development studio is recruiting a Senior Gameplay Programmer to work on an ambitious project using next generation technologies."

So, it definitely appears to be Ubisoft's racing game, but everything else should be taken with a pinch of salt. When Ubisoft was asked about this title, they refused to say anything, only replying with the stock:

"Ubisoft does not comment on rumours or speculation."

If it appears at E3, we'll know for sure, but at the moment we can only look at the screenshots (also unconfirmed) and hope. Do you think this will be more of a Pit Crew simulator than the usual hardcore racing game? Will it be able to compete with the other big racing titles coming out soon? Tell us your thoughts!

I love racing games-they've always been a wonderful break from the continuous release of Action, RPG, and FPS games. So, I can't wait for this, PCARS, and NFS: Rivals.
:D

Because we really do need more racing games.
I don't know why Twisted Metal does not sell better. It's a shooter AND a racing game; it essentially encompasses 99% of every video game in one package. If they could somehow incorporate the FIFA license...
