Reagent Games and Microsoft has been working on action-adventure title Crackdown 3 for a long time and it appears that the development requires some extra time to complete the game.
A few hours ago, Microsoft announced a delay in the game’s release and the Xbox head Phil Spencer also made a comment regarding the matter. The studio believes that they need some more time to deliver a quality experience to their fans and therefore, they will need to shift the game’s release from November 2017 to sometime until Spring of 2018.
Microsoft Studios Publishing general manager, Shannon Loftis spoke with the Polygon regarding the delay and said that they want to assure a best experience to their players in every single part of the game such as campaign, multiplayer and co-op.
“Wrecking Zone. Getting the balance right between the three modes is important, and we are going to take the extra development time to ensure that,”
While Xbox head also commented on the delay and said the delay is always a disappointment but they won’t compromise on the game’s quality as well.
It’s always disappointing to move a date. We are very committed to shipping @Crackdown 3 to the level of quality the fans deserve.
