Crackdown 3 Announcement Expected Tonight

develop-online.net: A new Crackdown announcement will be made at Xbox's E3 Press Conference, Develop understands.

Our source suggest the open world series will be return during tonight's event, although the nature of the announcement is not quite clear. While it's most likely to be a brand new (and long overdue) outing in the series – undoubtedly for Xbox One, but possibly for Xbox 360 as well – it could even be a remastering of the 2007 original.

Interesting enough, David Jones, the founder of Realtime Worlds, before founding Cloudgine, of course worked on the original Crackdown. Cloudengine is supposed to drive the cloud processing of XB1.

And lord and behold, the site has this message to say at the front page.
http://www.cloudgine.com/

Could be just a rumor and coincident, but only a few hours away to find out about the truth, I guess.

Are you guys really hoping to see games based on cloud computing already? The X1 has 8GB of RAM, shouldn't that be enough for the next few years? A new Crackdown would certainly be cool but I'm absolutely not into this cloud nonsense yet.

Volkama2129d ago (Edited 2129d ago )

If cloud compute can actually enhance gaming why wouldn't we want to see it? I think even the most die-hard PS fan and cloud detractor would be pretty happy to see a perceivable benefit really. Unless of course their own connection is terrible and they will miss out.

Whether people believe such a benefit can exist or not is another question altogether.

Also, RAM doesn't calculate much of anything :)

Crackdown3... :)
I was already expecting this to be revealed at the show actually. Can't wait to see it though.

Volkama2129d ago

That is an interesting find, good job. I checked that website about a week ago when cloudengine and crackdown 3 were being speculatively linked. I doubt this maintenance is a coincidence.

mhunterjr2129d ago

finally, they are going to have some info on their site... Surely the timing with e3 isn't a coincidence.

Stage demo or trailer with showing how cloud processing is aiding the game like they have talked about or bust until when it actually variable to use the cloud as the have talked about not simply as scalable dedicated servers.

Volkama2129d ago (Edited 2129d ago )

But cloud is a means to provide dedicated servers. It will never be more or less than that. Anything you can do on the cloud servers, you can do with dedicated physical servers too. It's just a more practical and cost effective way to provide them. That's the whole concept.

You're probably thinking "dedicated servers" in terms of simplistic multiplayer game hosting though, and that's where the confusion comes in. You can do a whole lot more than that with suitable dedicated servers.

I'm not saying Microsoft are or aren't going to blow us away with cloud tech here, or commenting on the viability of what they claim. I am just pointing out that "dedicated servers" is not something to be dispondant about.

No_Limit2129d ago

I never mentioned anything regarding if the cloud demo shown at GDC will be/could be used or not on Crackdown. All I am just pointing out that there is a good chance Cloudgen, founded by the developer of the Crackdown, could be using some of their tech in some form on the multiplayer front for online. They are not the developer but are just a middle ware company, I believed. But, let's just wait to see in a few hours.

"You're probably thinking "dedicated servers" in terms of simplistic multiplayer game hosting though, and that's where the confusion comes in. You can do a whole lot more than that with suitable dedicated servers." - Yh that's what I mean. It's great that most exclusives with benefit from the servers but the way this title has been rumor is to use those servers in a way like they showed with the demo from build.

"All I am just pointing out that there is a good chance Cloudgen, founded by the developer of the Crackdown, could be using some of their tech in some form on the multiplayer front for online." - Ha noted sorry about the confusion was just saying me views on the matter about the cloud and it could be used substantially in the game going from the company's description of their tech and the rumor from ntrkl. I just want them to show what they have talked about and shown in a game rather the concept.

Rainbowcookie2129d ago

I think it would be very powerful for Microsoft to show Crackdown 3 at E3 and the power of the cloud that they have been touting since last year. If I remember correctly they hinted at it with a picture at last years E3 . So it's not "if" but "when"

They just showed it on xbox stream. It looks AWESOME!

I've never played a crackdown game before as they looked boring to me. The Art style in this is really appealing.

It would not surprise with all these appearances of Phil spencer with a crackdown shirt.
