There’s probably a reason why Crackdown 3 was not shown at Xbox’s E3 briefing today. In a post on the Crackdown website, Dave Jones Creative Director at Reagent Games announced that Crackdown 3 has been delayed until 2017.
“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,” writes Jones.
Jones also announced that Crackdown 3 will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so purchasing it on Xbox One or Windows 10 will allow play across either device.
