Kotaku: Crackdown 3 Delayed to 2019


Sources: Microsoft Delays Crackdown 3 to 2019

First planned for November 2017, then delayed to 2018, the long-troubled action open-world game Crackdown 3 will now be out in 2019, according to two people familiar with the game’s release plans. It’s an unusual move and another blow to Xbox’s already weak first-party lineup for 2018.

The third Crackdown game, developed by the British studio Sumo Digital among other companies, was first announced at E3 in 2014. Last year, Microsoft said Crackdown 3 would come out alongside the Xbox One X on November 7, 2017. A polarizing showing at E3 2017 and some severe development struggles led Microsoft to delay the game, first to a vague “spring 2018" window, and now to next year, said those two sources, speaking anonymously so as to protect their careers.

Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
