Is Formula Drift Coming to The Crew 3? (Rumor)

New details about The Crew 3 may have been revealed to the world today thanks to an Instagram post from an unlikely source.

Earlier today, three-time Formula Drift Champion Chris Forsberg posted a selfie in front of Ubisoft’s Ivory Tower developer studio to his Instagram page.

In the caption, Forsberg wrote “Out here at @ubisoftivorytower in Lyon, France working on an exciting special project with the @ubisoft team this week! How many of you guys are also gamers!?”

For those of you who don’t know, Ubisoft Ivory Tower is the development studio behind The Crew 2.

The Crew 2 is one of the most successful games in Ubisoft’s vast portfolio and the biggest entry in the series. However, Ubisoft has been quiet when it comes to any information about the next installment in The Crew franchise.

It is possible that Forsberg’s Instagram post has revealed the first bit of information about the game before any official announcement. Considering that Forsberg is a Formula Drift Champion, it is only natural to speculate that he would be visiting the studio due to some sort of collaboration or including him in a future project.

From here the question is what is the exact reason for Forsberg visiting Ubisoft Ivory Tower?

It is entirely possible that whatever Forsberg and Ubisoft are working on is related to The Crew 2, but considering how long the game has been out, that seems unlikely.

If Forsberg’s visit is connected to The Crew 3, then what type of content will result from the collaboration? Will there be a Formula Drift car pack? Or is it limited to just Forsberg’s new Nissan Z being part of the car list at launch?

Unless Chris Forsberg drops another revealing Instagram post sometime soon, it is hard to know when we may get any official word from Ubisoft about The Crew 3.

Right now, the most likely scenario is that Ubisoft will reveal more information during the “E3 season” this summer. With no physical or digital E3 event this year, it is up to video game developers and publishers to announce their upcoming games during their own stand-alone events or during a third-party event such as Summer Games Fest.

Alternatively, Ubisoft might decide to time game announcements uniquely to each title. EA is doing something similar and foregoing their traditional EA Play event this year. That means the next Need For Speed game will get a stand-alone reveal event.

For now, it looks like all we can do is wait and see. Why do you think Chris Forsberg is visiting Ubisoft Ivory Tower? Share your theories in the comments below or tweet to us at @MotorworldHype.
