Crackdown was one of the most addictive gaming experiences on the original Xbox, but it looks like Crackdown 3 might be an awesome experience on the upcoming Xbox Scorpio console.




Microsoft Studios art director Dave Johnson has confirmed Crackdown 3 for holiday 2017 "or earlier" during an interview with Extra Life, adding that Crackdown 3 will support 4K on the Xbox Scorpio. Microsoft has already confirmed first-party games will all run at native 4K resolution on Project Scorpio. The game was originally slated for launch in 2016, but Microsoft delayed it into 2017 for a few different reasons.


Xbox marketing boss Aaron Greenberg said that Crackdown 3 wouldn't launch in 2016 because Microsoft's holiday lineup was already chock full of games, with Microsoft Studios boss Shannon Loftis adding that Crackdown 3 was delayed because the team wanted to spend more time on the campaign.


Crackdown 3 is due out on Xbox One, Xbox Scorpio, and PC in holiday 2017.
