'The Crew 2' release date, gameplay, trailer and everything we learned Ubisoft E3 2017

Ubisoft

Ubisoft surprised us with plans to release The Crew 2 with an announcement in May. Now the company is offering up more details at E3 2017.

The Crew 2 launches in early 2018. Check out the trailer below.

The trailer, and subsequent presentation, show four distinct sections of gameplay. There is the main street driving, off-roading on two- or four-wheelers, speedboating and flying — each seems to have a unique style, but they all share a common focus on gorgeous environments.
