The Crew dev studio acquired by Ubisoft

The Crew is now officially a part of the Ubisoft family. Just in time for The Crew Wild Run.


Ubisoft announced it has acquired Ivory Tower, the development studio behind The Crew.

Ivory Tower has a total of 100 employees and will continue to support The Crew for the time being. With The Crew Wild Run releasing in November, we’re sure the studio has its hands full at the moment with the expansion.

In today’s announcement, Ubisoft has revealed over 3 million people have played The Crew to date, which would explain why the publisher would want to acquire Ivory Towers.

The Crew didn’t exactly wow us when it released last year, although we did enjoy its ability to let us roam across the US as well as its Spec and Car Level systems. We’re hoping the upcoming release of The Crew Wild Run will take an already great idea and improve it across a number of ways.

      The Crew is not a bad game. I think it got lost in the aftermath of the Assassin's creed release right before it that went so poorly and everyone lost trust in Ubisoft (for good reason).

      I happened to get it for free with an Nvidia purchase and played it quite a bit.

        Which is why I gave the game a "Not Bad" score in my review.

          Sorry if my post sounded like I was disagreeing with you. It was more of a general comment.

            Oh, no! Not at all. I was just mentioning it since you said the game was "not bad". ☺

      Game was pretty lame. Couldn't get any car to drive straight if my life depended on it. It was a good idea executed badly. Ill play Need For Speed The Run any day over this.
