Remember Crackdown 3? Yeah, the same Crackdown 3 that got announced way back in 2014? Well. if you were thinking of playing it this year as originally planned, you’re in for some bad news.
Microsoft has confirmed that instead of the original launch date of November 7, 2017, the new Crackdown 3 release date is scheduled for spring 2018. The reason for the delay? It’s just a case of polishing the game and ensuring it delivers on the quality side.
This is what Shannon Loftis, Microsoft Studios Publishing GM had to say about the Crackdown 3 delay:
We’re very excited about Crackdown 3, and so are many fans, and so it’s a difficult call to move the release date. However, we want to make sure to deliver the right game, with the right quality, and at the right time. Crackdown 3 is a hugely ambitious game and we want to ensure we deliver the right experiences all the way through every part of the game, whether that’s campaign, co-op multiplayer or our competitive multiplayer mode, Wrecking Zone. Getting the balance right between the three modes is important, and we are going to take the extra development time to ensure that. Gamers can expect Crackdown 3 in Spring of 2018.
Well, there you go. Once we hear the final Crackdown 3 release date, we’ll be sure to let everyone know.
