Development of Crackdown 3 has been far from an easy ride, following repeated delays since its 2014 unveiling. Its world of neon-lined action has proved promising over the years, leveraging Microsoft's cloud technology, and onboarding stars like Terry Crews for its roster. Crackdown 3 is currently set for a February 2019 debut, meaning four months remain until its scheduled arrival.
Good news lays ahead for Crackdown fans, with Microsoft now promising the sequel's return at November's upcoming Xbox FanFest event in Mexico City. After its absence on the E3 and Gamescom 2018 show floor, Xbox Mexico has confirmed Crackdown 3 among the show's planned lineup.
The focus of November's Mexico City FanFest event is X018, Microsoft's revived fan showcase on hiatus since 2013. The event has previously hosted big Xbox announcements, with similar scale expected this year. Details on Xbox One mouse and keyboard support are confirmed, while an acquisition of Californian studio, Obsidian Entertainment, is seemingly brewing. With Crackdown 3 at the show, here's hoping there are new details on X018's Inside Xbox live stream.
Without a major presence in recent years, we still have much to learn about Crackdown 3. Despite its city-leveling destruction being a key aspect of multiplayer mode, details are thin since the initial reveal. Heavy work appears to have been underway, which may hopefully bring worthwhile advancements.
