Microsoft has delayed Crackdown 3 from its previously announced November 7 release date to spring 2018, the company announced.
According to Microsoft Studios Publishing general manager Shannon Loftis, development teams Reagent Games, Sumo Digital, and Cloudgine need more time to ensure a quality experience.
“We’re very excited about Crackdown 3, and so are many fans, and so it’s a difficult call to move the release date,” Loftis told Polygon. “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.”
Crackdown 3 will be available for Xbox One and PC.
