Will support Xbox Play Anywhere initiative.
Why wasn’t Crackdown 3 at E3 2016, especially when a multiplayer beta was promised back at GDC 2015? As it turns out, the Cloud-powered open world action title has been delayed into 2017 according to Reagent Games.
The developer noted that, “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.”
The good news is that Crackdown 3 will support the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, which means you can buy it on Xbox One and receive it on Windows 10 (along with playing co-op across both platforms). What are your thoughts on the delay? Let us know in the comments.
