Online-driven games almost always face at least a few problems when they first launch.
But Ubisoft believes their upcoming open-world racer, The Crew , is ready to go and the release will go smoothly.
In speaking to The Metropolist , lead developer Serkan Hasan said that several betas have helped them stress-test the game's online functionality:
"…we’ve reaped the benefits of a long term beta program, designed specifically to push our infrastructure as far as possible in real world situations, with thousands of players from all over the world playing the game at the same time."
Hasan added that any online game can face "potential issues" when it first arrives, but he hopes players "will be encouraged by our open approach." The Crew will release next week in North America and Europe on December 5; it'll be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Let's hope it doesn't have Driveclub -like issues right out of the gate…
