The Crew: Orlando Leaks

A recent leak may have offered a first look at exactly what that project is, with screenshots revealing the title The Crew 2: Orlando.

The screenshots for The Crew 2: Orlando are said to have been datamined from The Crew 2 and are odd, to say the least. For one, Orlando appears to be a codename rather than a location, as the screenshots show it taking place either in Hawaii or on a fictional island off the west coast of the United States. There are also logos for both a "Massive Race" and a "Live All Star," both of which could refer to a 100-player Crew vs. Crew race involving swapping vehicles like a racing game triathlon/battle royale.

Here's where things get interesting. One of the screenshots shows the title The Crew 2: Orlando along with a flag saying "FREE," implying this could be DLC for The Crew 2. However, leaker Tom Henderson has since offered some insight into what they've heard about the project. Henderson says Project Orland isn't actually DLC, but rather a project currently dubbed The Crew: Orlando. It's an entirely new racing game built on a new driving engine.

Henderson doesn't elaborate on what he's heard, unfortunately. It's possible that Orlando was once planned to be free DLC for The Crew 2 and has since been expanded to be a full project. In other words, the leaked screenshots aren't representative at all of what The Crew: Orlando might be anymore.

What Henderson does apparently know is that The Crew: Orlando is currently actively in development at Ubisoft's Ivory Tower studio. It's still in pre-alpha, however, meaning there's still a lot of work left to be done. As such, Henderson says that there's no set release date for the open-world racing game.

A new report from XFire claims Ubisoft is developing The Crew 3. The game has been internally dubbed as Project Orlando and may be revealed as soon as this year. XFire also reports that the game will feature a brand-new driving engine and other overhauls, likely signaling a new direction for the series. The first two games in the series centered around players having the ability to drive and later fly across the United States of America. Of course, a third game could allow players to do that again, but maybe the new consoles will open it up to a more global road trip. It would be nice to see other countries involved or see Ubisoft expand itself to incorporate the entirety of North America.

The premise of the first two games was awesome, but I never got into them because of the shitty physics and economy. If they manage to polish part 3 to the levels of Forza Horizon, with a massive map, proper simcade physics and economy, then I will be all in...
