Crackdown 3 delayed to 2018
Retailers are expected to begin taking pre-orders for the Xbox One X right after the event.
Project Scorpio was teased in 2016 and is the name of the Xbox capable of playing 4K and virtual reality games.
Microsoft might be readying a special edition of the Xbox One X, and it'll be a nod to the console's original codename. Whether it's a game that's bundled into the box along with the console, an Xbox Elite Controller, or something else, we'll hopefully find out at Gamescom.
Shannon Loftis, Microsoft Studios Publishing general manager, said the company is delaying the Xbox One and Windows PC game to give development teams Reagent Games, Sumo Digital and Cloudgine extra time to ensure a quality experience. Engadget also speculated that the special console will feature a 1 TB hard drive. With the Xbox One X release date imminent however, this news confirms that Crackdown 3 will no longer be supporting the console at launch.
Crackdown 3 will be available for Xbox One and PC.
Microsoft will be holding a press conference on Sunday and I am hopeful that they will be announcing more titles that will be part of the launch event for the console. The company released a limited edition of the anticipated gaming box in June of 2013, complete with an embossed "Day One 2013" controller.
Microsoft's Gamescom live stream will begin on Sunday at 9:00pm CEST or 12:00pm PDT on the main Xbox Mixer channel.
