Popular adventure gaming series "Crackdown 3" was expected to launch in November this year. However, it appears like its game developers have pushed the date to Spring next year.

Release of the game

As reported by Gadgets 360, the game was expected to launch at the annual Gamescom event alongside the unveiling of Microsoft’s Xbox One X. While Microsoft has taken the wraps off its gaming console, "Crackdown 3" hasn’t seen the light of day yet. The pre-orders for Xbox One X have already begun and its shipping is expected to begin in November. "Crackdown 3" is specifically designed for Microsoft’s latest Xbox One X.

The open-world action game is also supported on Xbox One and Windows 10.

Everything regarding the game

Microsoft’s Publishing General Manager, Shannon Loftis said that game is equipped with high-end features, which require a longer period of time to perfect. The company wants to ensure that the fans receive the right type of experience through every part of the game. All the different stages in the gaming series, including campaign journeys, co-op multiplayer options, and others are highly ambitious and thus, may take longer to work on. Microsoft is currently working towards establishing the right balance between the three modes that "CrackDown 3" consists of. Therefore, the company is going to require extra development time to ensure that the gaming series is in balance.

"Crackdown 3" has been officially announced to arrive in Spring of 2018.

The delay in the launch of "Crackdown 3" has been believed to cause a negative impact on the sales of Microsoft’s Xbox One X. The gaming console is experiencing a tough time due to the growing dominance of Nintendo and Sony products. Since there is a big fan following the "Crackdown" action gaming series, it holds great importance for Microsoft, who hopes to regain its lost title through "Crackdown’s" help.

Not much has been revealed about "Crackdown 3" until now. Back in June, during the E3 2017 event, the game developers revealed a live-action trailer of the game, which featured the multiplayer co-op mode. The trailer revealed a very rough and choppy cut of what can be expected from the upcoming gaming series, but it sure did excite the audience present at the event. Additional updates regarding the gaming series are expected to be made official with time. Stay tuned for more news and updates on technology.
