Dave Jones’ ears must have been burning down at Reagent Games, as he’s written a blog post in the wake of Crackdown 3’s surprise no-show at Microsoft’s keynote this morning. The post confirms that the game, originally thought to be coming out this year, has in fact been moved to a 2017 release.
Here’s what Dave Jones, creative director at Reagent Games, had to say.
At E3 2014, we announced the return of the Crackdown franchise with the unveil of our newest title – Crackdown 3 – and established an exciting and ambitious vision to redefine open-world gaming. Then at gamescom 2015, we showed that creating completely physical and destructible multiplayer environments is possible through the power of Microsoft Cloud and Xbox Live. Today, we are excited to confirm that Crackdown 3 will be available for both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, and will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title so you can buy one and play across either device.
