Crackdown 3 release date confirmed for February 15, 2019

Can you believe it's been over 4 years since Crackdown 3 was unveiled at E3 2014, and then it went into hiding for a few years before it was meant to be released last year in November 2017. Well, we now have official release date by the company with Crackdown 3 dropping on February 15, 2019.

Crackdown 3's release date was announced during the XO18 broadcast in Mexico City, with the Xbox team announcing the news there. It's in a good spot as both Anthem and Metro Exodus launch just a week later. Microsoft took the time to announce a new multiplayer mode for Crackdown 3 known as Wrecking Zone, which looks like an insane amount of fun.

Wrecking Zone is a 5v5 deathmatch with its own dedicated arena, and if you check out the trailer above you'll see the destructible environment being the soul of the game mixed with the Wrecking Zone game mode, Crackdown 3 could be seriously addictive... kind of like crack, I guess?

Crackdown 3 is an Xbox first-party game meaning that on launch day it'll be on Xbox Game Pass for both the Xbox One and Windows 10 for the PC. Xbox Game Pass costs $10 per month under its subscription, which is a steal for something like Crackdown 3.

Personally, I was a massive fan of the original Crackdown pumping countless hours into it on the original Xbox. Ugh, such a fun game - but Crackdown 3 seriously takes it to another level of mayhem.
