More than four years after it was first revealed at E3 2014, and following numerous delays, Crackdown 3 (opens in new tab) has been given what is hopefully an actual release date: February 15.
We already knew it was coming in February (opens in new tab), but having a specific date makes it less likely that publisher Microsoft will delay it for the fourth time. Having said that, we got a concrete release date last year (opens in new tab) and the game ended up missing that by about 15 months, so anything is possible.
Also announced at Microsoft's X018 yesterday (opens in new tab) was a 5v5 multiplayer mode called Wrecking Ball. As the title suggests, it's all about destroying as many things as possible: skyscrapers, walkways and, ultimately, your opponents. You can watch a trailer for it above.
