Phil Spencer: "I was playing a full build yesterday. Nice work by the team, more work to do but good progress, my agent felt like the wrecking machine I enjoy :-)"
I can't wait to see if this is so Phil.
I can see the X box heads fake hype and faking the pump for this game. 😂
Mommy always said say no too drugs.
It's a generic tweet that says we're still working on it and it feels like the other games. You honestly consider that to be hype?
I dont think the game will be all that good, but I am excited to see what it offers, but yeah as an xbox fan I am rather disappointed in how this game has been handled.
To trash it and start controversy right? Not to try it
I'm waiting for a gameplay trailer or gameplay of the game isn't that wrong?
I still think you’re a bot.
I'm surprised they still haven't cancelled this game. Must have wasted a ton of money developing all these years...
It would be too embarrassing for them to cancel it now, after all those years of hype.
We saw game play after E3 2017. It was horrible unfortunately. At the start of this gen Crackdown 3, Inside, Quantum Break, had me rather pumped for XB but with what we have seen of CD 3, an ok QB, and a stellar Inside that ended up going to PS4 anyway. I never "jumped In". Sony on the other hand has been mind boggling how many killer exclusives they had along with a really new way to play with PSVR.
This looks more to be a technology demo than an actual game, to showcase their so-called cloud processing and capabilities, cuz if they were to have concentrated on it as being a game first, it would have launched much earlier. Bets on that this is going to fail as a game, mediocre at best.
I don’t envy this gaming coming right after previous critical XO exclusive hit Forza Horizon 4, especially how dry exclusive critical hits on the console were before that title this year.
There's like 5 Months separating the releases of the games. I don't think the games will affect one another. Game will probably get played through game pass, but the prerelease hype won't mean much if the game isn't also good
Man, I'm rooting for this game. It will be a huge positive for Phil and team if it turns out to be a critical success for xbox.
too similar to Too Human last gen IMO
Me and my buddy must be the only ones who liked too human
95% of its hype was about how it was supposed to be a showcase for cloud computing and what it could do for the original Xbox One. I don't think it's going to be that at all, and they're frantically trying to improve other aspects of the game to make up for it.
Yeah, I guess. Something like that. If it take 4 or 5 years to develop one game because of the cloud helping with performance, then what a total waste of resources and time. Especially if it ends up selling like crap. Perhaps they focused so much in graphics and flashies and destruction that they forget to implement a story.
This game is already a let down right after the fact they couldn't live up to the cloud hype.
I think you mean cloud deception.. They knew from the get go they were manipulating gamers. It amazes me that anyone can support this company after they tried to kill physical games.. Microsoft gaming division disgusts me.
Now I'm having doubts it'll release on time and yet will suffer another delay.
I've been skeptical that it will ever be released at all for a couple of years now.
Phil said it won’t get another delay regardless of it’s ready or not
Phil said lots of things, and yet nothing happened.
Eurogamer's sources told them MS ain't allowing another delay. it's release or cancel at this point.
Between now and march....Ms doesn't have any reason not to promote Crackdown. It still baffles me why they didn't have a greater showing at E3.
Unless they have a reason for not promoting Crackdown.
There’s a reason they didn’t show. It’s not ready.
4 years later and still not in a state to show? That's not good.
In a state to play but not show gameplay?
I'm not getting my hopes up for this game.
Curious what the end result will be after all those demos with the cloud.
Shhhhh - that's all to be forgotten about. But Terry Crews is in it. See MS cares.
Well we know there will be a flood pf haters like you ready and waiting to bash the game and drown out any positivity about it i bet it makes you drool you cant wait for that controversy
The cloud destruction was part of Microsoft's plan to show that the Xbox One was made 3x more powerful with the cloud. Then... they released the X-model which is actually like 5x as powerful as the XO. So now everyone still wants to see the destruction but its not even included in this delay. And you know who excited Microsoft is about single player games... I would say, at this point, delay it until you have the multiplayer going to. If you gonna do things right, do it right.
LordJamar - This game in my eyes has gotten worse as time has gone on. If I was MS I'd polish this turd until it's almost unrecognizable and release it as a launch title for their next console. At least then it might look like it did when it was first announced and people like you lost their minds about the 'power of the cloud'. It took a fee articles from Mark Cerney to pop that bubble of lies. MS has been scrambling since. Nothing a liar hates more than being caught.
Sorry Jamal but MS lied about the cloud and it's capabilities, they did it to themselves.
@Lord Well i just hope they didn't downgrade the physics for the game. Because if that happens it will be a lot worse than Puddlegate. But to be honest if it does happen Microsoft only has themselves to blame for over promising. Digital Foundry will tell us the complete story when the game comes out.
@Eonjay not 3x more powerful, try 20x... https://www.mcvuk.com/devel...
There’s rumors of a downgrade where that is concerned. But let’s wait for eurogamers analysis before coming to that conclusion.
the cloud stuff isn't happening anymore. it's just a mode called wrecking zone with two buildings. The first team to destroy the other building wins.
the game still needs work after 3 years? mmmmhh...
While Sony released a recent gameplay preview for their next big exclusive Days Gone, Microsoft still hasn’t provided any significant recent previews for Crackdown 3 that comes on the same day It’d be more reassuring if Microsoft showed it off at any upcoming conference
Its slated for February so no more conferences. They could however do one better and offer a demo.
OX18 is happening so they will show it there.
@Spurg There you go.
They should just offer it as a f2p title imo.
This game is gonna bomb
As a f2p title I think it would fair better but as a retail fully priced game its not even gonna sell a million copy's imo. Didn't the original crackdown only do about 2million?
Going up against Anthem, Metro Exodus and Days Gone, the last time MS released an exclusive against a big game it tanked hard (rise of the tomb raider)
Microsoft didn’t release Rise of the Tomb Raider, Square Enix did. They just published it
Oh boy the haters cant wait for this one i can see them drolling over the controversy ready to rip xbox apart it it will be christmas for them no positivity will be around for crackdown 3 all of it drown out by bashing every social gameing platform comments will be stuff full of hate dont even get me started if its not a 10/10 on metacritic
You know its true. When crack down 3 comes out and its anything but perfect the comments sections will be cancer
Spiderman only got an 87 in Metacritic and plenty of people love the game. If Crackdown gets anywhere close to that im pretty sure it will get plenty of praise on this site. The issue is if it ends up being another SoT or SOD2. If you need an example of a universally loved Microsoft exclusive just look at Forza Horizon series. If Crackdown 3 is any good it will be loved by many.
Well I'm sure theres a slanderous puddle article you can go back and find about Spider-Man before that got shut down or maybe one about how the game is "out of touch with current real world Police relations", or if that doesn't do it for you go back and read numerous articles about how awful Sony was before they changed their crossplay stance, that should make you feel better.
So anyone rightfully criticizing how long it's taking for this game to come out is hating it? What kind of backwards, delusional talk is that? THEY PROMISED YOU A GAME. What do you get? Excuse after excuse, after excuse. If you're a real gamer, don't let Microsoft get away with this crap.
No one said that im just saying many dont care about the game they are waiting for controversy and a chance to bash it the hate circle jerk for this game will be huge. No idea why you cap they promised you a game when we all know it wil be released. Your kinda the exact type of person i mean you hate the game and have no interest of playing it what your waiting for is the controversy and a chance to bash it non-stop once is releases.
BOOOOOHOOOOOO!! You want positivity? Make a good game and dont advertise what you can't do. This is the real world bruh, no participation trophies around here.
This game better be a game changer.
It's not going to be. That's why it's been sandbagged for so long.
was supposed to be out around when just cause 3 was releasing now just cause 4 coming before this but this has multiplayer should add a grappling hook but just cause has the forest,jungles and snow mountains crackdown kind of a plain city but still like the jumping rooftops,picking up cars/lightposts ,and futuristicer vehicles/weps
Im curious how much money they have shoved into this game...what a disaster.
Boy, I am sure people can't wait for this to come out get a 62 metascore and immediately forget about it like just about every Xbox One Exclusive this gen!
This game will score between 65 & 75 on Metacritic and we all know that, mark this comment if you please. Imo they sould cancel it and focus on new quality titles.
Think after what happened with Scalebound Phil and MS learned it's best to stick with it and release it. The criticism they'd receive would be overwhelmingly great if they canceled this.
The negative PR from cancelling another game would be worse. MS cannot afford to not release this game.
