A couple of rumours from 2 reliable posters at Resetera -

Klobrille said:

Alright. Because of my comment yesterday I know I owe you guys a little more. I had a long - and I mean really long - chat with someone working on the game just today. I can't verify these things though as I won't risk anyones anonymity. So take this as a disclaimer - and just as a blank internet rumor.

Without going into any kind of specifics what I learned is that Crackdown 3 is a bigger game than I thought it would be - and you know I already always was pretty hyped about it. Both in terms of content scope and budget. Contrary to what I've read here, the game without a doubt could've been released in Nov. There was primary one big voice within Microsoft stopping this though - and the budget of the project once more got raised significantly. (Personal annotation: while the name never was written, I think he indeed meant Phil, "to make sure the IP stays relevant in future"). The additional development time wasn't used for just polishing. It also allowed both Sumo and Ruffian to add more features to the two distinct game modes (Reagent Games seems super small today, only overlooking the project). Game runs in native 4K on Xbox One X. No performance mode. "Significantly more meaningful" transformation cars. More on the game to come "soon" now - couldn't confirm E3 showing. I got ensured the game has "significantly improved" compared to the last showing. Maybe Jez heard the same story though.

Jez said:

Heard similar, especially RE: IP being relevant in the future. Heard that it has been significantly improved since last summer, but I've also heard from a few places that, because they want it to be "up there" with Halo/Gears/Forza, that it could get delayed even further. I'd rather see them delay it to improve scope/quality, make it as good as it can be.

I think fans of CD3 will be impressed by what they see, but a bit disappointed at the same time too. This comment will probably make more sense when all the details are out.

"to make sure the IP stays relevant in future"

Crackdown Royale.

It'd be perfect, in all honesty, an alternate take on Fortnite, with an emphasis on destruction rather than building. It'd be really interesting if they could get something like that to work.

The MP mode is only 10 players so I doubt they could get up to 100 for a BR mode. Also Phil said recently they didn't want do a BR as so many third parties are doing it.

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.

Usually when I read 'development hell' I imagine gooseberry fool going wrong, but with CD3 the extra development time seems to be caused by good intentions. ...wait a minute!

Trying to avoid a Sea Of Thieves / State Of Decay 2 rush job. MS need a critical hit, and they need one soon.

Far better to delay it and release a well rounded product; good decision.

From Today -

But what is the good news then? cos back then you said fans would be happy about some stuff and disappointed about other stuff. If the delay is the disappointment then what is the other thing you ain't telling us.


ZhugeEX said:

Wait a few days.


Maybe the game looks great? Split release like Photek said but I'd go with MP this year.

They had gameplay of the campaign a year ago so think that's still coming and it will include free beta to MP this year which will release 2019.

While extra development time can often be a good thing they can't keep delaying Crackdown 3, gamers are just going to lose interest eventually.

“But I don't want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can't help that,” said the Cat: “we're all mad here".

At this rate it'll probably be a launch title for the next gen Xbox.

Probably waiting for everyone to forget about the cloud claims.

Yes?
