We appear to have some more concrete details on the long-awaited Crackdown 3. Microsoft Studios art director Dave Johnson confirmed during an Extra Life charity stream that Crackdown 3 would be coming to Xbox One and PC by Holiday 2017, or even earlier. He also stated that it would be supporting native 4K on the upcoming Project Scorpio. There was no mention of HDR support but hopefully we can get confirmation of that before the game launches.
4K, 4K support and other similar terms have been tossed around frequently by different game developers, sometimes referring to using a checkerboard render or upscaling from a resolution slightly lower than 2160×3840. Crackdown 3 has a lot to live up to, promising a completely destroyable open-world city for players to wreak havoc in, with the rendering being supported by Microsoft’s Cloud infrastructure. If it can maintain this promise while also delivering full native 4K on project Scorpio, it’s sure to be a showpiece title for Xbox next year.
