We could see a return to the Crackdown franchise…
Gamerant.com reports that a user on NeoGAF claims that Crackdown 3 will be released on the Xbox One in 2016.
The same user reportedly released details on the new Xbox One console, Microsoft's plans for the Halo series in 2014, and more that turned out to be accurate. The source claimed, "You will get Crackdown 3, unlikely announcement at E3 this year, as it is a 2016 release date."
Previously, Microsoft's Phil Spencer has claimed that Crackdown 3 is on its way, but said that while Microsoft is interested in the series, it won't happen until they found the right team.
The source also wrote, "I can tell you that there is a deal with Microsoft and Cloudgine for the project (codenamed Nimbus) that was struck back last year." Cloudgine was founded by David Jones and Marco Anastasi, who were both former members of the Realtime Worlds team. Realtime Worlds was the developer for the original Crackdown game.
