The first installment of the super-cop action-adventure franchise was launched in 2007. Crackdown was developed by Realtime Worlds and distributed by Microsoft Game Studios first for the Xbox 360. The sequel arrived in July 2010, without Jones’ input. The third title is slated to be launched holiday 2017 or maybe earlier, for the Xbox One and PC, and with 4K support for the upcoming Xbox Scorpio.

The release of the third installment in 2017 was revealed by the Xbox team during an Extra Life stream. Microsoft Studios director of production, Jorg Neumann didn’t say if the game would run in native 4K resolution on Project Scorpio, or if there’s an upscaling feature. But back in September, Microsoft announced that any games released for Scorpio would render natively in 4K.

Crackdown 3 was expected to launch in 2016, but Microsoft had to delay it to 2017 because of various reasons. First of all, Microsoft’s holiday lineup was already full of great games and there was no room for another game. Also, Microsoft Studios boss Shannon Loftis said that the company needed more time to work on the campaign, so this is why the launch was delayed to 2017.

As for the game’s story, it seems that the action will take place ten years after the conclusion of Crackdown 2 and will feature the return of The Agent. Microsoft hasn’t revealed what his mission will be, or what enemies he will face. The company will be focusing more on the game’s compatibility, which will be available on the Xbox One and PC.
