A mysterious Crackdown 3 website just went online, possibly hinting at some kind of announcement set for today and even an upcoming multiplayer beta. While the multiplayer beta was already a given, it is possible it could be launching in the very same day of Xbox E3 2016 media briefing.
The website is hosted on Microsoft’s server and features language linking it to Crackdown 3, referring to the user as an “agent” and highlighting five different “mission dates”. The first mission is due to start today, June 10, with weekly missions following until July 7.
On the bottom right-hand side there’s also a line of code that states “BETA_INIT”, possibly a reference to the game’s upcoming multiplayer beta, while the numbers in the website’s tab – 20, 15, 16, 19, 5, 3, 18, 5, 20 – correspond to the word ‘TOPSECRET’ when converted alphabetically.
Moreover, it looks like there could be some monetary reward for participating in those missions, since te website has references like this: “earned $2/$10 toward your agency pension”. Could it be a discount on Crackdown 3’s full price?
Crackdown 3 is scheduled to ship exclusively for Xbox One, with a multiplayer beta set to launch later this summer and the full game still missing a solid release date.
