Microsoft Is Against Microtransactions And Loot Boxes In Crackdown 3

Crackdown 3 has finally announced its release window after being delayed so many times. After five years of waiting, fan expectation for the game has gone high.

With such big release microtransactions and loot, boxes are always a concern, however, not in this case. Microsoft’s Joseph Staten explained that the developers are not committed to adding any microtransactions or loot boxes in the game.

We’re not committing to anything right now, we’re still experimenting with what’s best to do. We’re looking at what people find fun, tweaking the balance and so on. We also look at the long-term hooks. We know that we didn’t want to go with microtransactions. We’re not going with the concept of loot crates. There will be things you can unlock, increasingly cool things. Whether they’re rank based or based on the number of matches, we’re honestly still playing with it. We’ve made hundreds of things to unlock. We can take that to many places.

As for now, Microsoft is fully focusing on Crackdown 3’s launch. However, Crackdown 3 might come up with a new title.

Like the other multiplayer games which often comes up with a season pass and some additional contents down their line. Looks like Microsoft is still fleshing out the idea what it might look for Crackdown 3.

A rumor claim that the Crackdown 3 multiplayer mode will feature cloud-based destruction.

Crackdown 3 was first announced in 2014’s E3 event and since then the game delayed many times in these five years. Finally, in E3 2018 event the game finally announced its release window in February.

Crackdown 3 will release on 15th February 2019 for Xbox One and PC.
