Mere months before release, Crackdown 3 may now be titled Crackdown 3: New Providence.
Halo 6 would be a great name for it.
At this point they needed to change the name because of how badly it was received.
Microsoft is in a bit of a pickle. If non-gamers looking to buy a gift, or semi-gamers search the internet to find out about Crackdown 3 they will find many years worth of negative stories, so it makes sense to change the name to something that can't be connected to the bad press. A big shout out to @TheCobertinator who made a very good suggestion for a new name, however, I feel they would have more success with God of War 2 or Spider-Man 2. Sadly they will probably opt for Agency Fighters.
I bit off topic but when you click on the link the picture for the game at the top looks amazing imo but I guarantee it doesn't look that good
@Mr If people still go looking, then likely they'd just search Crackdown 3 without the subtitle, so I'm sure all the negative stuff will still come up. Maybe not if they use Bing, but on any other search engine. But CD3 isn't coming out until after the holidays, so likely this won't be so much of a gift game. More one of those games people might pick up because they finished up the games they got for the holiday. Come Febuary, people may still be on that Game Pass add on sale that people brought for those they gave it to, assuming they got a 3 month or 12 month sub at the store. Which isn't a bad thing to add for someone getting a new system to be honest, as it does give a nice selection of games from the start.
so does anyone know if it still has all the badass building destruction? its pretty much the one reason why i wanted to play it. loved red faction guerilla.
@Mark_Parch When I click the link the only picture I see is of some sort of menu. Are you saying the menu wont look this good?.
@andibandit Sorry, click on alternative sources at the top of this page. that shows the picture I'm referring to
to be fair changing the name is a good idea, kinda like a fresh start to help us forget about the absolutely terrible marketing the game had at last years gamescom. I really hope this game turns out fun
This comment gave me a good laugh
Crackdowngraded 3 lol
Wow, Did mommy help you think that up?
@thexmanone: nope, he used the power of the cloud to come up with that one.
You forgot 'infinite' deafdani
I dunno if I'd want Halo's name to be sullied by CD.
I was gonna make a similar comment, but I must warn you, Christopher might come around and suspend your account like he did to mine for 2 weeks. Make these types of comments with caution, especially when it's about the Xbone.
Imagine it coming with a Halo 6 beta, now that would be a throwback!
Good idea. Just like the first one. Only reason I got Crackdown to be honest
I'm done with Microsoft exclusives
They might be splitting the campaign and multiplayer up while they polish the latter.
I doubt it. people seem to think it's the multiplayer that caused all the problems but in 2016 there was supposed to be a multiplayer beta and Shannon loftis said they cancelled it because although the multiplayer was finished they needed more time to polish the campaign. Now there's a very good chance that was just PR spin
So...no MP beta because the SP campaign wasn't finished? Also thought this games SP campaign wasn't so much a campaign, but more like just running around collecting orbs and stuff.
PR spin from Microsoft now I am Shocked!? ;)
@rainslacker Her exact words were they didn't want to have the beta to far away from the release of the game and because there was still loads of work to do on the single player they cancelled the beta
Haven't they been polishing it for the last 5 years? If it needs more time then might as well just cancel the multiplayer and release the campaign for 30 bucks and call it a day. At this point, it is turning out to be an endless money pit with nothing substantial to show.
This game still exists?
or just release the game when it is ready and not rush it out flawed like most other developers
@DJStotty... Normally I would agree but if you can't get something even half decent ready in 5-6 years time then it is just a money pit. The more time you spend on it the more money it takes. If a year will make the game go from its current state (which isn't exciting at all) to a AAA title then yeah go ahead delay it. But at this point I have 0 confidence of it turning even as a decent AA title let alone a system seller. In such a case, you just need to go in and launch whatever you have and start working on the next thing.
1.Cloud down! Gee! 2.Direct to dv..er.. "Direct To Game Pass 3"(sod,sot and now cd3)- you know those direct releases would never sell well normally 3."Terry Cruise's Lowered Expectations" (snl) https://media.tenor.com/ima... 4. Canceled Title 3 (scalebound, fable, and....) both canceled after Christmas 5."68%" it would fit right between sod and sot
Direct to gamepass Like FH4??
it's a joke. jokes actually. something sorely needed on n4g.
Actually there is a slight difference with trolling vs joking.
Slate, Of course there is a difference, just like a snowflake has from a bigger....snowflake. Edit Apocalypse, too soon?
Days Gone. its titled after its delays
Ha xRacer wins. I liked that one xD
@Apocalypse Shadow Here's how jokes usually go down on N4G, based on who is the target of the joke. Targetting Sony: massive diasgrees. A unilateral deduction that you only own a Xbox1 and live in moms basement. After every PS4 exclusive has been listed someone will argue that Knack is an amazing game. Targetting Microft: massive agrees. Nobody gets the joke, but thinks you are serious and decides to further explain why microsoft fails. Targetting Nintendo: (I dont have enough words to describe this scenario.)
@Apocalypse Shadow If you feel that it's necessary to explain your "jokes"...then guess what? They ain't funny.
@ S2Killinit That's no surprise.
Well its funny what can i do? Dont take things too seriously we’re only here for a short period of time, cant be too serious all the time.
Or some people take things too seriously. Nothing wrong with some harmless poking, so long as its not actually done to be mean. I do it sometimes, and I know some people don't see it as funny....but if you can make one person laugh....then isn't that all that really matters. :)
@ S2Killinit @ rainslacker I don't take this seriously...at all. These are games we're talking about here. They're supposed to be a fun distraction from the mundane. If the original "jokes" were amusing I would have laughed and perhaps made a comment expressing my support. But Apocalypse Shadow's remarks were more smug and disparaging than funny, especially considering his comment history. Apocalypse, next time be more funny...or less cynical...or both. Yeah both!
Would it have been more funny if I poked fun at the competitions games? Would you have laughed then? I personally liked the snl one. But if the opportunity comes up, I'll toss you a couple. N4g needs to lighten up. I can now see everyone is just too wound up. Yeah ultra. Too soon.
@Apocalypse Shadow Please don't turn this into some kind of childish fanboy war. My response has nothing to do with any allegiance toward a specific company. I don't have any bias toward one platform over another, nor will I ever profess faith to a corporation. No one is "wound Up" over your remarks, brother. You're not relevant enough to influence anyone's disposition. I guess I'm the kind of person that doesn't always find it amusing when someone makes light of the creative endeavors and hard work of others, particularly when the person "poking fun" has absolutely nothing to do with the enterprise. Plus, you're just not funny.
https://i.gifer.com/5So2.gi... Don't worry Xavier, your spring will wind down eventually.....eventually.
@ Apocalypse Shadow Oh look, a gif. Those are always amusing and never tedious and uninspired. /s I'm sensing a pattern here...
No wonder why this site is so toxic.
this is the first time ever a game has got a reboot before it's even released lol. but that's basically whats happening
Yeah, you ADD a subtitle and take a number and it's a reboot. Lol. Logics: none.
Is it a remaster before it's actually released though?
You must have never played Resident Evil 1, 2, or 4. Or Final Fantasy XV. Or Rime. Or The Last Guardian. Or other games that aren't currently being made fun of.
Duke Nukem Forever? Last Guardian? Dreams?
It would be a reboot for the series.
Terry Crews: The Game
Now I am excited
"Crews" A retelling of Terry Crews' upbringing in a dystopian futuristic city. Brought to you by the folks who never finished Crackdown 3. Only on Xbox One/Windows 10 in native 4K. Day 1 on Game Pass.

Haha, now that was funny! Can't forget a clip of the scene in White Chicks where he was on the dance floor.
Is the new title: 'Discontinued' ?
Gears of war 5?
Already announced with a trailer.
Just scrap this title.
Kind of agree with the Reddit post, that it's a potential MP Beta. I mean XO18 is this Saturday and Major Nelson has said there will be some surprise announcements. I huge announcement would be the MP Beta for C3 was available on Saturday.
Coming Soonish 3 - It might release....soon. You will soon feel the POWER OF DA CLOUD. Soonish.
