Crackdown 3 was absent from Microsoft’s E3 conference, and now we learn why. Microsoft just announced that the game will come in 2017.
We also learn that the game will be among the newly announced “play anywhere” titles from Microsoft, available on both Xbox one and Windows 10 at the same time, allowing you to buy a single version and play it on both platforms.
An explanation for the delay was also provided.
“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.
We know that many are looking forward to becoming Agents in Crackdown 3and we are committed to delivering the best experience in 2017. This decision was made with our fans and their gaming experience in mind.”
Last, but not least, the team promised to show more about the game “soon.”
