Crackdown 3 was the most-played new game at launch,beating Far Cry New Dawn & Metro Exodus
 

 
It's doing surprisingly well.

Crackdown 3 was supposed to launch many months ago, but was pushed back to February 15 to polish up the experience. Luckily, it's available right now through the Microsoft Store. You can buy it for $60, or you can grab it with Xbox Game Pass, for $10 a month.

Crackdown 3 is split into two different downloads and supports Xbox Play Anywhere and Xbox One X. The campaign is separate from the "Wrecking Zone" multiplayer mode. The campaign doesn't feature the cloud-powered destruction, so you'll have to battle other players if you want a taste of that.

According to a report by GamesIndustry, despite launching with heavy-hitters like Metro Exodus, the title has managed to beat them all and was one of the most-played games at launch. It only lost out to free-to-play games like Apex Legends and Fortnite. You can read an excerpt from the article below.

While its physical launch sales were somewhat disappointing... there is data to suggest Crackdown 3 has still been a hit on Xbox One. TrueAchievements has released its latest weekly chart of the platform's most played games, which shows Crackdown 3 was the third most popular title of the week. It was only surpassed by Apex Legends and Fortnite, in terms of the number... that played it, and both of those are free-to-play... it's the single-player campaign specifically that reached No. 3 in the charts. The multiplayer... placed much lower at No. 22. TrueAchievements' chart is calculated by scanning user accounts... more than half a million... for which games they have played in the previous week... It's worth emphasising that these are games actively played, not just ones where achievements have been unlocked... Metro Exodus was only the 32nd most-played game of the week, while Far Cry New Dawn was 37th. Both were beaten by the beta for Black Desert... and... Jump Force didn't even place.
The success of Crackdown 3 can be attributed to Xbox Game Pass, because reviews weren't positive at all. In our review, we said, "Crackdown 3 just doesn't meet contemporary standards as a premium $60 title, with dated visuals, thin gameplay features, and an under-delivered story. There are too many open world superhero-style games that simply do it better. That said, it's not a bad game, by any means."

Hopefully Crackdown 3 will see continued success in the coming months as more gamers join Xbox Game Pass. According to Microsoft's Executive Vice President of Gaming Phil Spencer, the subscription service already numbers millions of members.

These boys might merge with Nintendo instead of drop a next gen console.

I know yall f*gboys not gonna like that, but take your grievances up with that sh*tty game company for flopping an entire gen and putting themselves here.

This isn't even a weird flex, this isn't something you shouldnt flex.

Far Cry is a dwindling series. Metro is an underrated series that not enough people know about or play.

The fu*k is this ?

This is why I think ppl are weird. Just say congrats and keep it moving. If u don’t like it then go like what u like. It’s not like it’s a review of the game where you’re giving your opinion. You’re hating on an accomplishment

Congrats to what?

I just asked how many sales the game had at release.

Do you have an answer or not?

I hope you're not one of those corporate slaves.

ur uninformed.... and very much so!

if you knew anything, its nintendo whose actually the one who analysts say would do much better just being a software company...

this view is actually from industry insiders and analysts, so u claim to have more insight than these 20 plus year veterans?

alotta people talk out the a*s about stuff they know little about... you included!

MS is not hurting in any way what so ever, nintendo is not hurting either...

SONY is not hurting (RIGHT NOW) but just a generation ago, had to sell buildings.. had to learn from MS how to implement proper online community, and how to package it so that people will pay... and it's still not worth it very much compared to XBOX.

continue with your ill-informed and played out narrative tho!

the only diff between PS and XBX is what, 6-8 games? and price of console?

if something is sh*tty to you just because of 6-8 games but brought us hundreds of games previously, lead multiplayer for 10+ years... and was the best selling console for 6 years (last gen)... then not much can say to some one with a close mind, such as yourself.

i on the other hand will continue to enjoy true 4K for less than a price of a PC that can do 4K 60. and instead of 1000 games, im okay with 992 games i have over here.

not saying i am not in awe of TLOU or spider man or god of war and death stranding... which are deemable console sellers, just saying all this f*g BOY sh*t is ridiculous, and always coming from PSN fan boys when no body from the xbox side ever thinks of yall nor starts any confrontation...

as always on cue, xbox gets props and then some SONY f*g bOY has to p*ss his pants butt hurt that no news came out about sony for the last 6 months, but MS stay in the news on a weekly basis, just off of good will...

must make u jealous, still angry over cross play huh? and back compatiblity?
dont worry just spend another 4 or 5 bills and SONY will hook you up next gen playa...
