After being a major highlight for Microsoft at gamescom 2015, Crackdown 3 essentially vanished from the public eye, even skipping out on E3 this past year. While the game has suffered numerous delays, it appears things are about to heat up for the open world action game as the official Twitter account confirms that more information is on the horizon. With a confirmed Project Scorpio announcement tomorrow, perhaps the horizon is closer than many think.
That seems to be the question many fans have on their minds as well, with one going as far as asking directly. Unfortunately, the reply didn’t offer too much else in the way of answers, simply stating that the Crackdown 3 team wasn’t aware of what other teams were working on and that news would be rolling out in the coming months. As for right now, it appears that Microsoft’s big reveal tomorrow is purely hardware based.
@Ells144 We have no insight in to what other teams are working on, but Crackdown news will start rolling out BIG TIME in the coming months.

Considering it’s one of Microsoft’s major first party offerings expected to release later this year, it’s entirely expected that Crackdown 3 will be a major player at E3 this year. With Microsoft’s E3 show falling on June 11 this year, one day earlier than normal, the plan to roll out more information on the game in the coming months lines up perfectly with the show.
Even with series founder, David Jones back behind the wheel, development on Crackdown 3 hasn’t been as smooth as expected. After multiple delays and missing a number of larger events such as E3, an insider revealed that development has been rocky. With its gamescom 2015 partner Scalebound getting the axe earlier this year, many began to wonder if the same fate awaited Crackdown 3. Thankfully, things appear to have turned around for the title, and with a ton of information on the way, fans should expect to learn and see a whole lot more about the destructible world of Crackdown 3 very soon.
Do you think the game will show up tomorrow? What are you hoping to see from it? Let us know what you’re thinking in the comments below.
Crackdown 3 is expected to release sometime in 2017 for PC and Xbox One.
