Ubisoft announced today that its upcoming racing game, The Crew, has been delayed. The game was previously pegged to launch on November 11, but it's now scheduled for December 2.

"The extra time will allow for a second closed console beta to be held, giving even more players the opportunity to experience the game, which is something the community has been requesting," Ubisoft said in a statement. "Like the betas held previously, valuable player feedback and other essential information will be gathered, further enhancing the experience."

The first closed beta for The Crew on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is going on now. The second closed beta will be held sometime in November for those platforms. Details about how to sign up will presumably be announced later. The beta was already made available on PC, and you can read our impressions here.

"Our philosophy remains to deliver the best game possible. We're all committed to delivering a revolutionary experience in the driving genre and we can't wait for The Crew to be in the hands of the players," creative director Julian Gerighty said.

The Crew is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox 360. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
