That the launch of Crackdown 3 was not a huge success, is something more or less known to everyone. The sales figures of the game are not exciting, as are the reviews of the press and the opinion of the public, which have not particularly rewarded the new exclusive Microsoft .
The reasons are many, in addition to a sector technical little up to the situation: just think of the fact that Crackdown 3 was released the same day as Metro Exodus, Far Cry: New Dawn and Jump Force, and only a week before the launch of Anthem, to understand the fierce competition that It is also a game announced almost five years ago, and a very troubled development, so it is likely that some pessimism, the first negative voices and the abundance of alternatives, have influenced rather negatively on sales. It does not seem to have benefited much from the numbers of the videogame even the fact that it is already included in the Xbox Games Pass.
The numbers seem so negative as to have led some retailers in the United Kingdom to drastically lower the price of game, about half of the launch. ShopTo for example, sells Crackdown 3 at a cost of 27 pounds (about 32 euros) and it is said that others do not choose to follow suit in an attempt to place as many copies of the game is possible.
