Crackdown 3 Hasn’t Been Forgotten About

The last time we wrote something about Crackdown 3, was in our article about cloud gaming, but news has been scarce surrounding this title and it seems an age since it was first announced. This leaves a lot of room for people to speculate and assume, as what has happened recently with rumours regarding it’s cancellation. But never fear, as we can always count on Phil Spencer to shed light on grim situations.

Crackdown 3 is still very much in development, Spencer clarifies on twitter:

It seems as though our Phil is impressed with it’s development thus far, but don’t expect much more information on Crackdown 3 this year. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was a title to launch alongside Project Scorpio.

Creative Director of Crackdown 3 Dave Jones has said that releasing Crackdown this year would jeopardise it’s ambitions and goals, explaining that it’s a game built for multiplayer future that will redefine what it means to play games. Their top priority is to give gamers a new way to play video games; something that hasn’t been done before, on a scale so huge that it’s becoming more and more challenging as time goes on.

Crackdown 3 is confirmed to be released in 2017, but a definitive date has not yet been set.
