In Case You Were Wondering, Crackdown 3 Is Not Canceled

A glitch in Amazon's systems caused many to fear a cancellation of Microsoft's Crackdown 3 for Xbox One and Windows 10, but luckily this isn't the case.

The sudden cancellation of pre-orders on Amazon led many to wonder whether the upcoming game for Xbox One and Windows 10 Crackdown 3 was canceled.

Turns out it isn’t. Microsoft Studios Creative Director Adam Isgreen confirmed that the game is still in active development on Twitter.


We also get word from Xbox Games Marketing General Manager Aaron Greenberg who also mentioned that the cancellation of pre-orders was simply a technical issue which affected Amazon’s systems.

So there you have it, straight from the lion’s mouth: Crackdown 3 is still coming, despite the fact that we haven’t heard much about it for a while. While we don’t know when precisely it’ll come following its delay to this spring, we do know that Xbox Game Pass users will be able to enjoy the game at no additional purchase.

If you’re not afraid of Amazon’s issues, you can go back and pre-order it (again?).
