The sequel to The Crew, a successful video game released in 2014, is coming to gaming consoles in the spring of 2018. While that means gamers across the world are going to have to wait to get their hands on The Crew 2—the new racing video game developed by Ivory Tower and published by Ubisoft—the public did get a sneak peek of the game, which is set to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early 2018, during a press conference (watch it here) at last month’s E3 – Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

Well, at least for performance boating fans, you can race a variety of boats, including realistic-looking M31 Widebody catamarans from DCB Performance Boats and river skiff raceboats. In the game, which also includes street cars, motorcycles, planes, off-road vehicles and more, competitors are given the chance to showcase their racing skills in a variety of disciplines and rise as a multi-skilled motorsports champion.
“It is cool to see our boats, specifically the M31, come to life in a global video game of such high caliber as The Crew 2 by Ubisoft,” Jeff Johnston, president of DCB, said after getting a chance to see the game trailer and other behind-the-scenes footage. “We worked closely with the Ubisoft production and licensing teams to provide renderings and other information related to our boats. I’m not much of a gamer, but I can’t wait to play The Crew 2.”
Johnston isn’t the only one, and based on the fact that there are more boats in this game than the preceding one (and most other video games for that matter), there may be some boaters waiting in line for the release of The Crew 2 next year just to get the chance to drive and race a 31-foot DCB.
