Crackdown 3 is one of the Xbox One’s big upcoming flagship titles. It’s a game many fans of the original didn’t think would happen after the tepid response and sales of Crackdown 2. But Microsoft Studios surprised everyone at E3 2014 by announcing that a third game was in development.
It’s been a long time since that announcement. Several delays later, we’re still waiting to hear about a solid release date for this action-adventure game that boasts fully destructible environments and tons of explosions.
Here’s everything else we know:
Crackdown 3 Release Date
Crackdown 3 has been delayed and will arrive sometime in 2018.
The game is coming to XBO and PC, and will be part of the Play Anywhere program, which allows players to buy one copy of the game for both Xbox One and Windows 10 play.

At Gamescom 2015, Microsoft unveiled the first gameplay footage of the game, showing us that the franchise hasn’t changed too much. The same arcade-y feel of the original is still very much a part of this installment.
Of note is the destructible environments. Crackdown 3 is boasting more chaos and destruction than we’ve ever seen in a game. Perhaps only Battlefield can’t top the explosions we just saw on the Gamescom stage.
