Crackdown 3


 

Crackdown 3‘s February 2019 release window is still a few months off, and as expected, it still needs some work, according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer.

That’s according to a recent tweet Spencer published, stating that he “was playing a full build [of Crackdown 3] yesterday. Nice work by the team, more work to do but good progress.” Spencer added that his “agent felt like the wrecking machine I enjoy,” capping it off with a smiley face emoji.

The fact that there’s still “more work to do” might sound bad, considering the game was originally supposed to launch in 2016. Still, seeing as how Crackdown 3‘s development has been marked by setback after setback, including several delays, the exit of series creator Dave Jones, and an early demo that overpromised the game’s multiplayer and forced the developer to live up to expectations, Spencer saying that developer Sumo Digital has made “good progress” is something of a relief.

Sumo Digital managing director Paul Porter recently stated that Crackdown 3 is “pretty much done,” but that’s definitely not the same as completely done. February 2019 is only a few months out, and knowing the game’s history, it’s hard not to get a little worried following Spencer’s (mostly positive) comments.

Crackdown 3 is scheduled to launch February 2019 for Xbox One and PC.
