Of course, some of that information is based on quotes from quite a while ago, and if Crucible really has evolved since then, it’s really anyone’s guess what kind of game it’s going to end up being.
As for Crucible‘s intended release date, it sounds like the plan was for Crucible to be unveiled/released sometime in March. However, complications caused as a result of the spread of the coronavirus have forced Amazon to push that date back a bit. It’s not believed that we’ll see the game in May, but again, the current global situation means that you really can’t take any upcoming release dates for granted.
Regardless, it will be interesting to see Crucible looks like at this stage. Amazon is planning on pushing into the games market in a big way between the release of their New World MMO, potential upcoming Lord of the Rings games, and that aforementioned streaming service, but as the popularity of shooter titles like Fortnite and Call of Duty show, few things can draw as much attention as a globally popular competitive online game.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on any new information related to Crucible so you know whether or not it will indeed be the next major online shooter.
