The sudden removal of The Crew, from players accounts left many puzzled. Some believed it was an attempt to stop players from creating servers while others thought it might be related to licensing or legal issues. Regardless of the cause the lack of communication from Ubisoft added to the frustration of fans who had enjoyed The Crew for years.

While shutting down servers for a game is common in the gaming industry forcibly removing the game from accounts crossed a line for many players. Ubisofts silence and apparent disregard for the time and money fans invested in the game was disheartening. Given Ubisofts emphasis on community engagement their handling of The Crews closure seemed out of touch with player sentiment. It remains to be seen how this incident will affect sales and trust, among disappointed fans who once cherished The Crew.
