News Xbox One Xbox One S Xbox One X

Microsoft Studios have announced that the long awaited, and Xbox One X launch title, Crackdown 3 will be delayed until 2018, to ensure that “We can make sure we deliver all the awesome that Crackdown fans want” said Shannon Loftis, Microsoft Studios Publishing General Manager, on Twitter.

She also followed that tweet with another, stating “To clarify: the entire game is moving to Spring 2018. It’s super ambitious, and we want to make sure the game delivers.”

Phil Spencer, head of Xbox also tweeted his disappointment, clearly indicating that in its current form Crackdown 3 still needs work to bring it to “the level of quality fans deserve”.

Whilst clearly disappointing news to hear, I would rather have a fully working, high quality Crackdown game to play than a broken, mess of a game early. Rumours that all was not well with the game surfaced at E3 this year, with no multiplayer seen or heard from at the show.
