Rumor: Crackdown 3 Might Have a New Title

Crackdown 3

Mere months before release, Crackdown 3 may now be titled Crackdown 3: New Providence.

A keen-eyed Resetera user (courtesy of Reddit user Prince_Perseus) posted a screen capture of the Xbox Italy store with the newly renamed game in an apparent leak.

OnlySP verified the leak by changing the Xbox Store’s native language to Italian; clicking on the game, however, redirected to a page with the original title.

Xbox X018 is scheduled for November 10 and 11 and could certainly house a Crackdown reveal.

Crackdown 3’s development troubles have been no secret as the game has seen multiple delays. A complete name change four months before release would only add to the interesting development cycle.

Crackdown 3 has a release window of February 2019 and will launch exclusively on Xbox One. Additionally, Xbox Game Pass members will also receive access to the game on launch day.

Pokémon Developer Game Freak Emphasizes Original Game Creation

Published

Pokémon

Game Freak, best known for the Pokémon franchise, is starting to emphasize and prioritize original game creation.

In an interview with Video Game Chronicle, Masayuki Onoue, a director at Game Freak, says that the company has launched Gear Project, an initiative in which developers pitch ideas during slower periods between big releases to create more original games other than just Pokémon.

Onoue also spoke about Production Team 1 and Team 2 at Game Freak, the first prioritizing Gear Project for the company as a whole and the second focusing on Pokemon. He noted that Gear Project allows the developers to gain more experience working on different platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, as well as transferring new skills and techniques they learned back to the Pokémon team.

Some of the games that Game Freak has released so far through Gear Project are HarmoKnight, Pocket Card Jockey, Tembo the Badass Elephant, and Giga Wrecker. Game Freak is also developing Town, an RPG game that was shown off in a Nintendo Direct back in September 2018 and is due out this year.

Additionally, Game Freak is working on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the latest entries in Nintendo’s flagship franchise. Both of those are set to release later this year.
