Based on profiles and online resumes, it appears the Crackdown 3 team is working on a still mysterious new project inside Xbox Game Studios.
It seems that within the Xbox Game Studios there is another exclusive game that has been in development for a few years already, by the team responsible for Crackdown 3 , although it is not clear if it is a new chapter in the series.
The matter emerges from the profiles and online resumes of various developers within Xbox Game Studios, although there has been no announcement about it. In particular, James Goddard, design director of Ryse and Crackdown 3, is holding the same role on a project that seems to be unknown to the public but has been underway since 2017 .
Similarly, Mark Simon, design director of ReCore and Crackdown 3, is also working on a new project from the same year and so is Dave McCrate, senior producer of Killer Instinct and Crackdown 3. In short, it can also be different projects but what stands out is that, in the curriculum of the three developers in question, there is a common element, namely Crackdown 3.
It could also be Crackdown 4 , considering that Microsoft didn’t seem willing to abandon the franchise , despite the somewhat disappointing results of the third chapter. It should also be noted that, despite the Sumo team, responsible for the previous chapter, has become part of Tencent, the intellectual property of the series remains in the hands of Microsoft.
Perhaps we will be able to find out more about this mysterious project during the Xbox & Bethesda Game Showcase 2022 conference , announced yesterday and set for June 12, 2022 at 19:00.
