Okay, I’ll stop now, I promise.
Admittedly I have been guilty of this myself- whereas officially, the new Crackdown game for the Xbox One that was unveiled at Microsoft’s E3 presser last week has been referred to as nothing more or less than Crackdown for the Xbox One, a whole lot of people, me included, have taken to calling it Crackdown 3. Apparently, that’s wrong, as Microsoft’s Ken Lobb tells us. The new game apparently represents a sort of reboot for the franchise.
“I don’t like X game number seven. It’s a good idea sometimes to have a game with a subtitle. But some games, and Crackdown is a perfect example, is it really 3? It is the future. This is a different place, long after the original game. But is it 2? Is it a different universe than 2? Yeah, it’s kinda a sequel to 1.
“It’s Crackdown,” he finished, speaking to Eurogamer.
You hear that, guys? It’s Crackdown for Xbox One. Not Crackdown 3.
