It's been nine years since The Crew 2 launched, and while Ubisoft has brilliantly supported that title it is time for a new game: Welcome to The Crew Motorfest!
Newly announced, the third instalment of the franchise is set to bring a huge leap forward from the previous game.
But what do we know so far about The Crew Motorfest? Let's take a look!
The Crew Motorfest
After years of waiting, rumours about The Crew 3 started flying in late 2022, including the potential new name. Well, it looks like those rumours were right!
We now know that a follow-up to The Crew 2 is coming with a slight rebrand. The Crew Motorfest looks to take the franchise to a whole new level.
Ubisoft Ivory Tower showed off beaches, jungles, and a festival feel to their new game in a quick teaser trailer.
But beyond that little is known so far.
The Crew Motorfest is set to arrive in 2023. But that is all Ubisoft has given us to go on so far, with no firm release date.
Given how long companies like to trail and tease their releases, we can safely assume that The Crew Motorfest won't be with us until at least the year's second half.
With Forza Motorsport likely falling into the back half of the year and Test Drive Unlimited coming around then too it will be a busy time for racing fans!
While nothing has been officially announced, the final frame of the teaser trailer does offer a good overview of the platforms the game will be on.
We are shown Ubisoft Store and Ubisoft Connect for the PC gamers, along with Epic Games. But also PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S logos which means the game should be available to those still playing on previous-gen consoles.
This should give the player base a big boost from the get-go, and hopefully mean that generational crossplay is included for multiplayer.
The Crew 2 took in all of mainland America, but Motorfest is aiming a little smaller than that this time.
We are heading to the island of O'ahu in Hawaii! Players will be able to race through the city streets of Honolulu, fly up and down volcanic slopes, and explore rainforests.
According to Ubisoft, The Crew Motorfest will let you explore Hawaii in "hundreds" of "legendary vehicles," a few of which were shown in the teaser trailer.

Boats and planes are also returning from The Crew 2, providing an ecclectic mix of vehicles to explore Hawaii by land, sea, and air. This will help set The Crew Motorfest apart from Forza Horizon.
Ubisoft wants to work with The Crew 2 community to help create the best game possible, and so are launching an Insider Program to get feedback.
The most engaged players will be able to get behind the wheel in The Crew Motorfest from 1 February to help the team develop the game and create the perfect Crew title.
Don't think you can show off to your friends with it though, as those participating will be under a confidentiality agreement!
You can apply here for the first phases that are PC only.
