Crackdown 3’s absence from E3 explained, game delayed to 2017 with PC port

I guess that’s a good reason

Crackdown fans were probably disappointed with Microsoft’s E3 show yesterday. After all, Crackdown 3 was announced at E3 2014, so surely they must be about ready to release by now, right? Unfortunately, that turned out not to be the case. Although we got our first look at the game’s fully destructible environment at Gamescom 2015, Reagent has been pretty quiet about what’s going on. Yesterday, creative director Dave Jones took to the Crackdown website to explain the game’s absence from the biggest gaming event of the year. Simply put, Crackdown 3 has been delayed to 2017 and a PC version is also coming.

Reagent aims to make Crackdown 3 part of the Xbox Play Anywhere campaign that Microsoft announced during yesterday’s showcase. If you buy one copy of Crackdown 3, you’ll be able to download and play the game on either Xbox One or PC without having to purchase a second copy. The developer wants to make Crackdown 3 a game with a “multiplayer experience that will redefine what it feels like to play games.” In keeping with that vision, Reagent realized that 2016 wasn’t enough time for them to release the game and have it be to the standards the company has set for itself.

Don’t expect any Crackdown 3 on the E3 show floor, but don’t take that to mean the game’s run into trouble, either. Reagent and Microsoft are still very much committed to bringing Crackdown 3 to Xbox One and PC, but they just need some more time to work on the game so it meets everyone’s expectations. Crackdown 3 will be available on PC and Xbox One at some point in 2017. A more specific date will be announced in the future.
