Crackdown 3 has been delayed until Spring 2018

Microsoft has announced that Crackdown 3 has been delayed until Spring 2018. The game was meant to hit stores on November 7th, however Microsoft claimed that the development teams needed some extra time in order to ensure a quality experience.

As Microsoft told Polygon:

“We’re very excited about Crackdown 3, and so are many fans, and so it’s a difficult call to move the release date. However, we want to make sure to deliver the right game, with the right quality, and at the right time. Crackdown 3 is a hugely ambitious game and we want to ensure we deliver the right experiences all the way through every part of the game, whether that’s campaign, co-op multiplayer or our competitive multiplayer mode, Wrecking Zone. Getting the balance right between the three modes is important, and we are going to take the extra development time to ensure that. Gamers can expect Crackdown 3 in Spring of 2018.”

We are pretty sure that the negative impressions of Crackdown 3 during this year’s E3 basically forced Microsoft to delay this game. Whether this delay will turn Crackdown 3 into  a better, prettier and more polished product remains to be seen.
