Report: Crackdown 3 may get delayed until 2019 [UPDATE: It’s official]

Things are not looking good for Microsoft’s next exclusive title, Crackdown 3. Last month, there were rumours suggesting that the game has been delayed to 2019 and today, Kotaku has reported that – according to its sources – the game will be indeed delayed until 2019.

According to Kotaku’s sources Microsoft hopes to give the development team the time it needs to avoid yet another disaster. After all, both State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves had major issues at launch.

Microsoft has not commented yet on these rumours so take them with a grain of salt. Our guess is that the big publisher will reveal more about Crackdown 3 during its E3 2018 conference this Sunday.

Crackdown was originally meant to hit stores in November 2017, however, in August 2017 the company announced that the game would be delayed to Spring 2018.


Microsoft has announced that Crackdown 3 will be indeed delayed to 2019.

“Our fans’ response to the signature antics and explosive gameplay of “Crackdown 3” has been incredible. To ensure we deliver the experience they deserve, “Crackdown 3” will be launching in Feb 2019. We look forward to sharing more on “Crackdown 3″ this Sunday during the Xbox E3 2018 briefing.”
