The game will now release on August 7, as revealed by the game’s official Twitter account.
When it does finally pull up on PC and consoles, Fast & Furious Crossroads will tell a new story in the F&F universe and feature Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson reprising their movie roles. They’re joined by Sonequa Martin-Green (Star Trek: Discovery, The Walking Dead) and Asia Kate Dillon (Billions, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum) as new characters written for the game.
Crossroads is a team-based “vehicular-heist” game, that presumably combines driving and action in the unique and outlandish manner that the films do.
The original May release date would have meant the game would release alongside the ninth Fast & Furious movie, but the film was delayed due to the impact of COVID-19 on the movie industry. At the time, developer Slightly Mad Studios and Codemasters had warned there could be a delay for the game. If you’re in need of some fast action ahead of August, you can always check out spin-off Hobbs and Shaw, released last year.
