Ubisoft: The Crew Isn’t Coming to PS3 Because Xbox 360 is “Closest to the New-Gen’s Technical Infrastructure”

August 13, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Earlier today, Ubisoft not only revealed that a beta for The Crew would come to PlayStation 4 in September, but that an Xbox 360 version of the game would be releasing alongside PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions in November.

Not mentioning a PlayStation 3 version at all during the original announcement, Ubisoft issued a statement to Videogamer afterwards, confirming that The Crew isn’t coming to PS3, and the reason it’s coming to Xbox 360 is because it’s the platform “closest to the new-gen’s technical infrastructure:”

The Crew is originally built for the new generation of consoles so when we made the decision to port it to the previous generation of consoles, we decided to focus solely on the platform closest to the new-gen’s technical infrastructure, which is the Xbox 360.

We are not currently working on a PS3 or Wii U version, we are rather focused on delivering The Crew for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Xbox 360 simultaneously on November 11.

What do you think of Ubisoft’s decision to not bring The Crew to PS3?
