After a series of rumors, Microsoft officially confirmed to Kotaku that Crackdown 3 would not release this year. Instead, it’s targeting a February 2019 release date. The spokesperson from Microsoft said:

“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.”

Crackdown 3 was announced at E3 2014 and was initially planned to launch with the Xbox One X in November of last year. Here’s hoping Microsoft doesn’t delay the game any further.
