Ubisoft and Harley-Davidson have announced that players of The Crew 2 will be able to cruise the open highways of America with Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
The collaboration joins Harley-Davidson’s legacy in American motorsports with the motorsports culture celebrated in The Crew 2, the newest iteration in the revolutionary open-world driving franchise.
First to appear in the game will be a Harley-Davidson Iron 883 motorcycle, with bare-knuckle minimalism and garage-built style. The Iron 883 is a nimble urban machine that kicks asphalt. Additional models will be integrated over time, allowing players of The Crew 2 to pick up their favourite Harley-Davidson motorcycle and shine in a near limitless world built for motorsports. Celebrated as a historic American brand, Harley-Davidson motorcycles echo The Crew 2’s vision to bring players the ultimate US motorsports experience.
“We are thrilled to partner with Harley-Davidson in The Crew 2. Harley-Davidson®
is a legendary, global brand, deeply rooted in American culture,” said Ahmed Boukhelifa, Studio Managing Director at Ubisoft’s Ivory Tower studio. “The partnership was a natural fit as Harley-Davidson represents the same thirst for unrestrained exploration and the American passion for all things motorised that has inspired our vision for The Crew 2.”
“Harley-Davidson has a storied past of celebrating the American spirit, freedom and love of the open road,” said Heather Malenshek, Vice President Global Marketing & Brand for Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “For almost 115 years, our customers have explored American cities and roadways with our motorcycles. With the launch of The Crew 2, we hope to inspire more people, young and older, to engage in the sport of motorcycling”
More than two years after the launch of The Crew, Ivory Tower, a Ubisoft studio based in Lyon (France), returns with a sequel that lets players experience the thrill of the American motorsports spirit inside a fully redesigned USA. The Crew® 2 takes the game experience beyond driving. Fans test their skills, solo or with friends, in non-stop competition and exploration, featuring a variety of cars, bikes, boats, and planes, to become the greatest champion of all motorsports.
The Crew 2 will be released worldwide early 2018 for PlayStation 4 Pro computer entertainment system, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox One X and Windows PC.
