Microsoft has officially revealed that the first gameplay footage for the upcoming next installment of the Crackdown franchise will finally be revealed next week at the upcoming Gamescom 2015. Phil Spencer revealed the news earlier on his Twitter account. You can check out his tweet on the announcement below.
According to Spencer, the final Gamescom content review was yesterday (July 27), “and things are becoming final. Lots of nostalgia for me with the Crackdown gameplay.”
This will be the first look for players at actual gameplay for the new Crackdown game. The game was first revealed at E3 2014 over a year ago, where a new CG cinematic announcement trailer was revealed. There has been little news on the title since, other than that the franchise’s original creator, David Jones, is developing it and that it will a competitive gaming experience powered by Xbox Live. One would imagine the Crackdown reveal at Gamescom will shed more light on what is in store for the game and also its pending release date.
Crackdown is being developed exclusively for the Xbox One. It does not yet have an official release date, but it is expected to be released some time next year. Microsoft’s media briefing at Gamescom 2015, featuring Crackdown, is set for Tuesday, August 4.
