A new report has hit suggesting that Crackdown 3 will see yet another lengthy delay, being pushed all the way back into 2019.
Crackdown 3 has had a rather rough go of it since it was announced. The game was announced in 2014 with a big fancy trailer that impressed but since then, it has been relatively quiet bar a couple of brief glimpses which have certainly been a little less inspiring. It seems development on the title has been somewhat troubled and that the game was announced a little too early.
Well, as if to confirm it, it seems the game is about to get another delay. Kotaku, who have a great track record with this stuff are reporting that the game has been pushed back to 2019. The report claims that Microsoft is trying to avoid a situation like Scalebound, Fable Legends and Phantom Dust, which were all announced, but none of them ever made it to console. It was also suggested that Microsoft might be trying to give one Red Dead Redemption 2 a wide berth.
There is no indication as to when in 2019 we might expect the game, but, if this is true, I don’t expect it will be too far into the year. That is unless the game is going through a major overhaul, which would be a worrying state for a title that would have been announced 5 years prior. Everyone is rooting for a good game to come out on the other side, and hopefully this delay will enable that.
