The boom-boom can have to wait slightly longer

Developer Smilegate has introduced that its navy shooter CrossfireX will not meet its supposed 2020 launch date. Citing roadblocks brought on by the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the free-to-play Xbox One title is now anticipated to launch someday in 2021.

“After much deliberation, and in consideration of the challenges faced by the Smilegate development team due to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of CrossfireX to 2021,” reads a statement on the official website. “Moving our release window will allow us to deliver the Crossfire experience on console our team set to create. We’ll have more to share in the future.”

Originally debuting during E3 2019, CrossfireX will see two non-public mercenary factions battle it out in well-worn multiplayer warfare. Siding with both non-public navy unit Global Risk, or shadowy merc outfit Black List – each of whom sound shady as fuck – gamers will have interaction in what’s described as “a variety of classic and innovative modes”. Without making an attempt to sound too adverse, I do not know what CrossfireX can convey to a shooter market already swimming in releases, however hopefully we’ll discover out quickly.
