Another yr, one other delay for super-powered futurecop sandbox Crackdown 3. Following rumours, publishers Microsoft have confirmed that it’s now as a result of arrive in February 2019. Better a great recreation later than a wonky one now, yeah? Though I wouldn’t begin getting excited for February simply but, given what number of instances the sport has been delayed. It was initially slated to launch in 2016, then it obtained an precise launch date of November 7, 2017, earlier than being delayed into spring 2018… and yep, on we go.
“Our fans’ response to the signature antics and explosive gameplay of Crackdown 3 has been incredible,” Microsoft advised Kotaku, who first reported on the rumoured delay this week, in an announcement. “To ensure we deliver the experience they deserve, Crackdown 3 will be launching in Feb 2019.”
They should imply the response from 2015, when it was first introduced, earlier than all of the delays and prolonged silences meant it slipped out of thoughts.
Still! I’m up for futurecop shenanigans. Microsoft say they’ll present extra of the sport throughout their E3 blastorama on Sunday (livestreamed from 9pm).
I do marvel what the sport has turn into over all this time. Destructible environments had been the sport’s marquee characteristic, although that’s solely in a multiplayer mode, not the common marketing campaign. Supposedly the destruction is so fancy it depends on cloud servers, which… look, at this level, all we are able to go is decide over scraps of plans which may’ve modified years in the past. Hopefully on Sunday we’ll see what it really is.
Crackdown three is coming to Windows 10 in February 2019 (for actual!) as a type of there ‘Xbox Play Anywhere’ video games which provides you a duplicate for each PC and Xbone should you purchase digitally.
