Crackdown 3 Release Date Broken Internationally

Xbox One and Windows 10 PC exclusive Crackdown 3 release date is February 15 though it appears that the Xbox One version of the game has gotten an early release in some parts of the world such as the US. Over the weekend pictures of retail copies of Crackdown 3 were posted on the Xbox One subreddit. Crackdown 3 was initially revealed at E3 2014 with subsequent showing at events such as Gamescom. Earlier slated for a 2016 release date, it was pushed back to coincide with the Xbox One X launch only to be delayed further to February 2019.

While the image posted was done so without the name of the store it was available in, the presence of the game in an anti-theft box pretty much narrows it down to a large format retailer. Furthermore, it was stated that there were “3-4 copies out for sale”.

Crackdown 3 India release date

Right now, it’s unknown if Crackdown 3 would be available in India at retail on release date. Microsoft’s track record has been iffy at best with Sea of Thieves ditching the store shelves and State of Decay 2 arriving late. Games like Forza Horizon 4 had their special edition variants cancelled at the last moment while the standard edition made it to stores. All of this makes Crackdown 3’s India release seem unlikely. Nonetheless, Gadgets 360 has reached out to Microsoft India and we’ll update this story if we hear from the company.
