Crackdown 3 Targets February 2019 Launch

Crackdown 3 Targets February 2019 Launch

It has been four years since Microsoft first revealed Crackdown 3 at E3 2014, but this week it has finally confirmed a launch window for the open-world action game.

Microsoft have decided on a February 2019 launch, and fans hope it will not be subject to any more delays or push backs. It was tentatively scheduled for a Summer 2016 release, but this never came to fruition. Instead, whispers of a troubled development have circled giving many Xbox players concern over whether Crackdown will even see the light of day.

A Microsoft statement to Windows Central said the following:

"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."

E3 2018 officially begins on the 12th June, however Microsoft will be beginning their conference a little earlier on 10th June, 1PM PDT (9PM BST). Different timezone? Check here for the local time in your area.

I'd rather a game get delayed and go out polished than early and be rushed. Can't wait to play though!
