Crackdown 3 Development Has “Been Rough” But “Coming Along Fine” – Insider
Shinobi602 clarifies earlier comments about Crackdown 3.
During the whole fiasco that was Scalebound’s cancellation, industry insider shinobi602 noted that Microsoft’s Crackdown 3 – which we hadn’t heard much of in 2016 – also wasn’t doing so hot.
The insider sought to clarify these comments on Twitter. He noted that, “Also asked around a bit and Crackdown 3 is safe, coming along fine. Development was rough but all game development is to be fair.”
As for his earlier statement that it wasn’t going well, shinobi602 said that, “Yea, it’s been rough, and there’s still issues but nothing like Scalebound is what I meant. It’s coming along.”
Once again though, take this information with a grain of salt. Scalebound director Hideki Kamiya was said to be taking time off for mental health but he seems to be doing fine.
Crackdown 3 is currently scheduled for release in 2017 on Xbox One and PC. There’s still no word on the promised multiplayer beta but perhaps more details will emerge at E3.
