Crackdown 3: Wrecking Zone Won't Support Friend Lobbies at Launch

By Dave Horobin, 7 days ago
The Crackdown 3: Wrecking Zone Technical Tests have been running over the past week, giving Xbox Insiders the chance to help the game's developers work out any kinks before the game's release. During the ongoing tests one sizeable omission has been brought to light. Reddit user Branflakes222 posted yesterday that the game lacks a way for players to create a lobby and invite a party of friends to play together.

When the issue was brought up in the Official Crackdown 3 Discord, the server's "Director" replied "No. Wrecking Zone does not support parties and will not at launch" and "I don't have any info on if/when they might be implemented" in response to another user.

Crackdown 3: Wrecking Zone Won't Support Friend Lobbies at Launch

For a company that has been at the forefront of multiplayer gaming on consoles and has been a leading voice for the virtues of cross-platform play in games such as Fortnite, the lack of a basic lobby system in a first party release does seem odd.

Crackdown 3 is scheduled to release this coming Friday, February 15th.
