Crackdown 3 Rating Appears on Australian Website

A new rating for Crackdown 3 has appeared in Australia, meaning that it looks like it'll be safely hitting its February release window.

November 5, 2018

Crackdown 3 news directly from Microsoft and Sumo Digital’s mouth continues to be sparse, but a recent new listing for the game on an Australian ratings site has given us our first piece of new info in quite some time.

Over on the Australia Classification Board, a new rating for Crackdown 3 was listed. The game was rated as an MA 15+ title with the central point of the rating seemingly stemming from “Strong Violence.” The MA 15+ rating, as you probably already guessed, is comparable to an M rating that we’d normally see from the ESRB here in the United States. As of this writing, now listing for Crackdown 3 has appeared on the ESRB’s website.

Ratings as a whole aren’t usually that big of a deal and are rarely something we report about here at DualShockers, but the bigger piece of news associated with this rating is that it seems like Crackdown 3 is finally going to end up releasing.

Originally revealed at E3 in 2014, many began thinking that Crackdown 3 would never end up coming out simply due to the length of time between its announcement and its scheduled release date. After having been delayed from a release date in 2017 and pushed forward nearly 18 months, it seems like this rating is finally an indication that the open-world game will, in fact, be launching on-time in February. Thank goodness.

If I had to guess, we’ll likely hear more about Crackdown 3 later this week during XO18. The game is already scheduled to be playable at the show and Xbox head Phil Spencer has recently stated that he’s played a full build of the game over the past month. All of the small tidbits of news we’ve received on Crackdown 3 have seemed positive. Let’s just hope it has a good showing at XO18.

Crackdown 3 is scheduled to release early next year on an undetermined date in February. If you’d like to pre-order it ahead of that time, it’s currently available to snag over on Amazon.
