This certainly won’t be the first time and that is why it should not come as much of a surprise. Based on the claim by some sources, close to the project at Microsoft, the expected action-adventure game, that has now been expected for years, Crackdown 3 has been once again delayed and shall release sometime in 2019.
Just a little while back, Amazon Spain canceled the pre-orders of the game which made it appear that perhaps Crackdown 3 has been delayed. While most of the community has been speculating over its delay, Microsoft took to its Twitter account and said that the game has not been delayed and the issue was solely Amazon’s fault.
Even though Microsoft has gone live with the news that Crackdown 3 has not been delayed, still there are those who seem to think that it is actually suffering a delay once again.
Considering the game’s reputation of suffering delays, fans are quite skeptical about it rolling out anytime soon. The game was originally announced at E3 2014 with a cinematic trailer which had most of the fans excited, following that over the period of its development it faced multiple setbacks which kept delaying the game. Although the game did make some appearance every now and then, some at big event as well, still it had to suffer delays.
While most of the fans have been optimistic about Crackdown 3 releasing this year, it seems like it just might not be the case. Since these are some sources whose name have not been disclosed, it does seem to reason that the news of the delay might turn out to be incorrect. However, considering its reputation of delays, the possibility can also not be ignored.
The sources said that Microsoft wants to give the development team the time they require, so they are completely sure that the game will not come across any type of disaster. Not sure what Microsoft means in terms of disaster, what would be more disastrous for a game that seems to keep on suffering delays.
Let us see what becomes of this, until we hear something from Microsoft itself, we can not be completely certain about the dealy.
