Crackdown 3 Release Date and Latest Rumors & Official Things

You might sometimes feel like destroying everything that you see that irritates you. Well, it cannot be done in real life, but there are many games which offer you such stress-busting pleasure. One such game that we are going to talk about here is Crackdown 3.  if you have played Crackdown 2 games, then you must be knowing what kind of game we are talking about. Crackdown 2 is a superb stress-busting game that one can play after having a hard day for lighting up his or her mood. We have been hearing about the third installment of the Game series and it was expected to release in the holiday season of 2017,  when it was first announced back in the year June 2014. But the latest news and rumors tell us that the release date has been shifted to February 2019.


No doubt it is one of the most awaited games of 2019 which will offer the players huge sets of weapons and vehicles to destroy a beautiful cityscape entirely, and all that in the name of justice. But the thing that has been annoying the fans is that the company has changed the release date of the game three times until now. The only thing that we have got from the developers is that “we want to make sure to deliver the right game, with the right quality, and at the right time.” They even promised a beta version of the Crackdown 3 game in the summer of the year 2016, but that too turned out to be just another lie.

So, here we are going to cover all the different news, features, release date and other important stuff about the upcoming Crackdown 3. If you have been looking info about the Crackdown 3, you can find all below.

Crackdown 3 Features

There has not been much information about that crackdown 3 game since it was first announced in 2014. We thought that there has been no development in the game but according to a few Twitter posts, there is a positive sign that in reality, things are actually pacing up. We are pretty more confirmed about its release this year.

In the original game, the player has got 500 agility orbs that are scattered as dotted points across the entire city. They are of different colors and the bright green and blue dots are very easy to spot in the city while you are out on the quest. It is important to collect them because they are going to help you in increasing skill levels. You will have to take the pain of finding them in the new game as well and things might get even harder when you are finally down to the last 100 of these ability orbs.

The players might also get the chance of enjoying the complete campaign mode along with 3 more friends. Crackdown 2 allowed only one more player to join the main player and this limit definitely should get an increase in the new version of the game.

One thing that we really want developers to enhance in the latest version of the game is the destruction capability of the player while at the same time making the environment a lot more destructible. You might have seen buildings and objects getting destructed and many games before. However, there is always a limit to which you can actually smash an item or object in a game, but things can actually be taken to a whole new level with the help of Microsoft’s cloud technology. Using Microsoft’s cloud technology, the rendering portion of the game can be handled by the cloud servers, while the Xbox One and other console processors can focus on other processes making the game fast and more swift.

In-game terms, it just means that the players will have now better and more detailed methods of destroying whatever they want. Crushing a building, digging a hole in it for a sniper wall, destroying different floors, making your way through the buildings by making your own doors and whatnot. However, one bad thing about it is that the players will be able to take advantage of that only in the multiplayer version and not in the single-player campaign co-op mode.

There is a demo version of the game that was available at the Gamescom and critics have given a mixed review about it. But overall it is especially for those players who love playing the role of a superhuman with superhero powers and ability to destroy anything coming in their way. However, the demo was not the final version and there will be a lot of additions to it before it is finally out. Still, we as well as many players have a lot of expectation from it.

Crackdown 3 Trailers

The first trailer of Crackdown 3 was unveiled at E3 2014. It will feature a number of Agents that will be working together in order to take down the crime lord Kingpin. While the agents are after the kingpin, you get a lot of falling towers, blocks and vehicles on the way. You see the same cityscape as in the previous game at the beginning of the trailer. You are also shown a lot of actions that we might get to experience as an Agent in the game fighting enemy robots and criminals and trying to eradicate the city from the crime.

There are certain rumors which say that Crackdown 3 might be released alongside with Xbox Scorpio, the most powerful Xbox console till now. We are still not sure if the developers are trying to make the game take full advantage of the features which Xbox Scorpio is going to offer.

Crackdown 3 Cloud Computing

One big reason why Crackdown 3 is going to be really interesting is because it will make use of cloud computing technology to take care of all the physics calculations that will be required for the destruction of the city. These demands required by the game are uploaded to the cloud for complex destruction computations while maintaining the frame rate constant.

Crackdown 3 Release Date

We have already told you before that the release date of the game has been shifted three times since the last four years. Last year we were waiting for it in the spring but it got postponed to 2019. It was confirmed by the developers of the game to the Polygon. The Microsoft Studios Publishing’s General manager, Shannon Loftis told the 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 a 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 Early 2019”, he added.
