Crackdown 3 Delayed Until 2017, Confirmed For PC Release

Crackdown 3 Delay

Crackdown 3 was surprisingly absent from Microsoft’s E3 2016 press conference, though it appears that was for good reason. Developer Reagent Games now confirmed that the game has been delayed until 2017, though it has also now been confirmed for a PC release alongside the Xbox One version.

Here’s what creative director Dave Jones said about the news:

“At E3 2014, we announced the return of the Crackdown franchise with the unveil of our newest title – Crackdown 3 – and established an exciting and ambitious vision to redefine open-world gaming. Then at gamescom 2015, we showed that creating completely physical and destructible multiplayer environments is possible through the power of Microsoft Cloud and Xbox Live. Today, we are excited to confirm that Crackdown 3 will be available for both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, and will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title so you can buy one and play across either device.

“Crackdown 3 is a game built for the future with a multiplayer experience that will redefine what it feels like to play games, and as we continue to work on this, it has become clear that our original timeline of delivering multiplayer to fans this summer, while maintaining the size, scope and quality of the game, would be challenging. Our top priority is to give gamers an experience they have never seen before at a scale never thought possible, and sticking to our original timeline would have compromised that goal.”

The developer ends by confirming that they will not be making an appearance at E3, though they are eager to show off where Crackdown 3 is headed soon. No further information was given regarding the multiplayer beta that was supposed to launch this Summer, though it will more than likely be delayed, as well.
