'Crackdown 3' (ALL) Gets Delayed Again, Misses Xbox One X Launch

Crackdown 3 will deliver unrivaled verticality, cooperative mayhem and destruction.

Crackdown 3 is a sandbox of mayhem and destruction featuring an open-world campaign that you’ll be able to play cooperatively online, and a revolutionary new cloud-powered multiplayer mode where destruction is your ultimate weapon.

Set in 2045, a major blackout has plunged the world’s major metropolitan areas into darkness and chaos. The Agency, the world’s elite taskforce of peace and justice, has picked up a hot lead and they’ll stop at nothing to find the ones responsible and deliver a harsh dose of justice… by any means necessary.

Crackdown 3 brings super-powered Agents to New Providence, a futuristic open-world city ripe for exploration, now on the brink of collapse at the hands of the corrupt criminal network TerraNova, Incorporated. Join Commander Jaxon and The Agency to take on the crime lords of New Providence using your tools of mayhem and chaos, like the singularity gun that shoots off a black hole and pulls destruction into its path for maximum impact.

In the original Crackdown players all over the world spent countless hours running, driving, and leaping around Pacific City. Whether they were taking down gangs or collecting those sweet agility orbs, fans couldn’t get enough. Now, the hyper-powered world of Crackdown is back in stunning fashion with an all-new Crackdown experience.

Microsoft has revealed that Crackdown 3 is suffering yet another delay, this time pushing it back until spring 2018, making it also miss the previously targetted Xbox One X launch.

“We’re very excited about Crackdown 3, and so are many fans, and so it’s a difficult call to move the release date,” Loftis said in an email interview with Polygon. “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.”
Crackdown 3 is an incredibly ambitious project that pushes the technological envelope with immersive true 4K gameplay, cloud-computing competitive multiplayer and a sprawling and futuristic open world. The team has been working extremely hard to deliver a great experience for fans and this extra time will help us do just that.”

Honoring the classic, open-world Crackdown experience, Crackdown 3 is bringing you a 4-person co-operative campaign enhanced with a new dynamic story, cutting-edge weapons and vehicles, enemies you’ll love to hate – and of course, tons of orbs to collect!

Crackdown 3 will launch Spring 2018 for the Xbox One family of devices with Xbox Play Anywhere support — buy it once and play it on both console and Windows 10.
