XDefiant is still relatively new, but Ubisoft has big plans for its 6v6 shooter. A recent leak has revealed that The Crew-style map is coming to the game soon.

Ubisoft has taken a unique approach with XDefiant maps. All 14 maps are divided into Progression and Arena categories and are inspired by different Ubisoft games. From Tom Clancy’s The Division to Watch Dogs, players will find many locations to be familiar with since they are derived from existing video games.

Earlier, a credible XDefiant data miner leaked a map named Signal pointing at a Far Cry-inspired location. Now, another map has slipped through the cracks.

Following the same approach, Ubisoft is reportedly working on a map inspired by The Crew. Leaks have revealed the first look at the race track-style location, and players are impressed.

What’s the Crew-style map Daytona in XDefiant?

According to the leaker, The Crew map in XDefiant is titled Daytona.

Earlier in March, Ubisoft pulled the plug on The Crew, leaving some players heartbroken. However, the game will become playable in XDefiant to some extent. The leaked map looks like a track straight from The Crew.

With colorful racing posters decorating the wall to fancy sportscars parked across the streets, Daytona is receiving great feedback from the XDefiant fanbase.

The map has sparked speculation that Ubisoft is planning to introduce a new faction based on The Crew. However, it’s important to note that these are currently just rumors and should be taken with a grain of salt.

The release date of the map is currently unknown, but Ubisoft launches one map per month during a season. This means Daytona should be released soon, either after another leaked map Signal or before it.
