The new Crazy Taxi game will be an open-world, massively multiplayer experience. It will feature a realistic city and imaginative maps while aiming to retain the classic chaotic and fun gameplay that the original is known for.

The original Crazy Taxi launched in arcades in 1999 and quickly became popular due to its unique, fast-paced gameplay where players act as taxi drivers navigating through heavy traffic to deliver passengers as quickly as possible. The franchise saw several ports and sequels across various platforms but has not seen a significant new release in 17 years, making this reboot highly anticipated among fans.
