Crackdown 3 Delayed Until 2017

By Kevin Tavore, 6 months ago
Crackdown 3 was originally unveiled at E3 2014 to great fanfare. At the time, the developers were aiming for a release this summer for their ambitious sequel. Today we learned that the game's omission from E3 is no accident — the game has been delayed to 2017. Developer Reagent Games issued an explanation:

Crackdown 3 is a game built for the future with a multiplayer experience that will redefine what it feels like to play games, and as we continue to work on this, it has become clear that our original timeline of delivering multiplayer to fans this summer, while maintaining the size, scope and quality of the game, would be challenging. Our top priority is to give gamers an experience they have never seen before at a scale never thought possible, and sticking to our original timeline would have compromised that goal.

We know that many are looking forward to becoming Agents in Crackdown 3 and we are committed to delivering the best experience in 2017. This decision was made with our fans and their gaming experience in mind.

While we won’t be at E3, we cannot wait to show you the future of Crackdown 3 soon.
While there are no new details, we did get confirmation the game would be part of the Play Anywhere program, which means it's coming to Windows 10.
