And in case you’re wondering: Microsoft revealed that the first Crackdown will remain free until November 30th, so you’ll want to snag the classic game while you can.
To say this is closes a long saga would be an understatement. Microsoft first talked about Crackdown 3 in 2014, before it even had an official title, and officially announced it in August 2015 with plans to release it in 2016. Needless to say, things didn’t go according to schedule. The creators pushed it back multiple times, both for the sake of refinement and the technological challenges of its cloud-based environment destruction system. At this point, the question is whether or not the third game can both justify the wait and satisfy gamers who still have fond memories from the series’ Xbox 360 heyday.
