Ubisoft has announced an exclusive deal with Harley Davidson that will see a number of the company’s two-wheeled masterpieces screeching around the streets of The Crew 2.
The first to be announced, which you can gawk at above, is the Harley Davidson Iron 883 but rest assured it is one of numerous bikes that will be available in the upcoming open-world rubber burner. So stay tuned over the next few months for further announcements.
It is safe to say that the news was welcomed by all involved in the game. Afterall Harley Davidson is a name synonymous around the world for engineering prowess, and there would be few other brand partnerships that could even come close to the buzz and attention this one is sure to generate. Who doesn’t love Harley?
The people who made it possible had the following to say:
“We are thrilled to partner with Harley-Davidson in The Crew 2. Harley-Davidson® is a legendary, global brand, deeply rooted in American culture“ said Ahmed Boukhelifa, Ivory Tower Studio Managing Director. “The partnership was a natural fit as Harley-Davidson® represents the same thirst for unrestrained exploration and the American passion for all things motorized that has inspired our vision for The Crew 2.”
“Harley-Davidson® has a storied past of celebrating the American spirit, freedom and love of the open road. For almost 115 years, our customers have explored American cities and roadways with our motorcycles. With the launch of The Crew 2 we hope to inspire more people, young and older, to engage in the sport of motorcycling” said Heather Malenshek, Vice President Global Marketing & Brand for Harley-Davidson® Motor Company.
They also released the following statement about the bike and future models:
First to appear in the game is a Harley-Davidson® Iron 883™ motorcycle, with bare-knuckle minimalism and garage-built style. The Iron 883 is a nimble urban machine that kicks asphalt. Additional models will be integrated over time for The Crew 2 players to pick up their favorite Harley-Davidson® motorcycle and shine in a near limitless world built for motorsports. Celebrated as a historic American brand, Harley-Davidson® motorcycles echo The Crew 2’s vision to bring players the ultimate US motorsports spirit experience.
