Crackdown 3 Required Hardware Specifications Revealed, Gamers With Low Specs Rejoice

Xbox owners have been waiting for Crackdown 3 for quite long. It was originally slated to release in 2017 but was then shifted for a 2018 release, but that didn’t happen as well and now we are expecting the game in 2019. Although users won’t mind the delays if the game delivers.

One of the big parts of Crackdown 3 is real time destruction. The devs have stated on multiple occasions that anything the users see, can be destroyed, including entire Skyscrapers. This scale of destruction obviously needs impressive optimization and the devs shifted part of the computation on the servers.

Sumo Digital the developers of Crackdown 3 just revealed the system requirements for the game.

Coming to the recommended system requirements, it looks like a big jump from the minimum requirements. Although a decent gaming PC should be able to meet these requirements with ease.
For a game based on destruction, the CPU requirement seems to be modest. It seems the developers will offload most of the computing to the servers. The game is slated to launch next year in February, although a specific date hasn’t been set yet.
