System requirements for the upcoming Crackdown 3 have just been revealed, leading up to the games' release date of February 2019. That we're getting system requirements this close to release probably means that the game is in a good state of development and in the finishing stages of going gold. However, we have to remember that this title has had a checkered past: it's initial announcement in 2014 led to a 2015 reveal which showcased the power of integrating Microsoft's Azure servers for processing of in-engine destruction (20 times the available clout of an Xbox one console for online scenarios). At the time, a 2016 release date was pointed towards; this one slid towards November 2017 alongside the Xbox One X, with another delay to Q2/Q3 2018... And then delayed for the third time towards a February 2019 release.

With all of that behind us, though, let's move on to the system requirements, which are relatively standard for this day and age. An Intel Core i5 3470 or an AMD FX-6300 paired with 8 GB of RAM and 2 GB of video memory (NVIDIA GeForce 750 Ti or AMD Radeon R7 260X) will have your minimum requirements covered. for the recommended specs, you'll have to bump your system up to at least an Intel Core i5 4690 or an AMD FX-8350 (still just four cores on the Intel camp), paired with the same 8 GB of system RAM and an increased graphics memory of 4 GB (with an NVIDIA GeForce 970/GeForce 1060 or AMD Radeon R9 290X/Radeon RX 480. Windows 10, of course, is a requirement for any Microsoft Studios game.
