Crackdown 3 Delay Won’t Impact Xbox One X Launch Sales, Doesn’t Make Any Material Difference, Says Pachter

Those buying an Xbox One X for Crackdown 3 will do it later rather than sooner as per Pachter.

It’s looking to be a rather dismal year for Microsoft which started out with Scalebound being cancelled, a number of exclusives launching in 2018 and Crackdown 3 dated for November but recently pushed to Spring 2018. With Microsoft offering more time to its development teams to polish the final product, what will happen to the launch of the Xbox One X, which launches on the same day that Crackdown 3 was supposed to?

According to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter on whether the delay would impact the console’s launch in any way, “Delays are pretty regular and to be expected. The game isn’t done, and the delay isn’t really very long, probably six to eight months. Not an issue at all, if people are buying Xbox One X for Crackdown, they’ll buy it in March instead of November.”

Pachter then pretty much stated it plainly that Crackdown 3’s delay will not affect the Xbox One X’s sales at launch. “I don’t think Xbox One X sales are going to be very high in the first place because of price, and don’t think a six to eight month delay for Crackdown makes any material difference,” he said to GamingBolt.

To be fair, Microsoft has been pushing the Xbox One X as a niche product in the first place rather than a brand new console. Whether Crackdown 3 would have been enough to push sales especially when it’s coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 as well remains unknown. Regardless, the Xbox One X will be out on November 7th and retails for $499.
