The Crew’s Day One Online Multiplayer Questioned by DICE Designer
Ubisoft’s The Crew will be releasing this November for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PC and has been garnering accolades for the scale of its open world. Though featuring single player, the main appeal of The Crew is its persistent online multiplayer which allows players to team up and form different crews for jobs. Naturally every online title, especially one of this size, will encounter issues on the first day.
Hilariously, DICE designer Alan Kertz voice his concerns on Twitter, stating that, “The Crew is quite cool, I’m worried about ubi’s ability to deliver online day 1 though.”
While a legitimate concern, it’s still funny to hear this coming from some one who worked on Battlefield 4 which faced numerous issues with its online multiplayer after launch. In fact, it could be argued that one of the key reasons Battlefield: Hardline has been delayed is due to EA not wanting a repeat of the Battlefield 4 disaster.
Thoughts on Kertz’s opinion? Let us know in the comments.
