Ubisoft has pulled its online-only racing title The Crew from sale due to "upcoming server infrastructure and licensing constraints." Those who already own the game can still currently play it, but servers are set to be closed on 31st March 2024.

Within a statement, Ubisoft said: "We understand this may be disappointing for players still enjoying the game, but it has become a necessity due to upcoming server infrastructure and licensing constraints."

The post continues: "Decommissioning a game, and especially our first one, is not something we take lightly. Our goal remains to provide the best action driving gameplay experience for players and to deliver on it, we are continuing to provide new content and support for The Crew 2 and the recently launched The Crew Motorfest."

Whilst it's sad to see a game removed from sale, 2024 will mark 10 years since The Crew was first launched on PC, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Ubisoft also released the latest instalment in the franchise, The Crew Motorfest, this September.

In our review of The Crew Motorfest, we said: "The Crew is better than the most recent attempt at an MMO-racer Test Drive Unlimited 2 in almost every area, but it's still overshadowed by its more traditional competitors."

REVIEW. Written by Morten Bækkelund

"You'll get a lot of fun out of The Crew, unless you come to the table expecting a revolutionary MMO racer."
