Get Caught Up in the Crossfire

CrossfireX release date delay has been announced by the developers, pushing back the launch of this Xbox Series X shooter to sometime in 2021.

CrossfireX was first announced as coming to Xbox consoles at E3 2019. This isn't a new game, mind — Crossfire is a free-to-play game that has been around for well over a decade. However, it hasn't had a release on consoles until the reveal of this new version. Now, it looks like fans will be waiting a little longer to play it.

 
 

Check out the CrossfireX Campaign Trailer to get a feel for what's coming in the future:

CrossfireX promised to give players some nicely enhanced graphics, especially on the Xbox Series X console. Furthermore, it would also feature the debut of a single-player campaign; the original version largely focused on the free-to-play multiplayer experience.

The game's Microsoft Store page noted that it was expected to release in 2020. Unfortunately, the developers have just announced that that's no longer the case — CrossfireX will be delayed to 2021.

When is the new CrossfireX Release Date?

The new CrossfireX release date will be sometime in 2021. Unfortunately, the announcement of a delay by the developers did not specify an exact date.

"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," read a tweet on the game's official account.

"Moving our release will allow us to deliver the Crossfire experience on console our team set out to create," the announcement continued. "We'll have more to share in the future."

You'll be able to play CrossfireX on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X sometime next year. For now, you can learn more about the game on the Microsoft Store.
