Xbox exclusive Crossfire X now joins the list of games delayed to 2021.

Earlier this year people saw a glimpse of what Crossfire X would be like, especially its single-player mode. A mix between CSGO and Call of Duty. Crossfire X campaign trailer showed off clips of high flying action set pieces from the game. The gameplay and the graphics looked amazing.

Crossfire X Twitter officially tweeted about the game being delayed to 2021, citing COVID as a prime reason.

Furthermore, Crossfire X is a joint venture between Remedy and Smilegate. Remedy is handling the single-player part of the game. Initially, only the multiplayer aspect was shown which showed elements from both CSGO and COD. But this year’s trailer of the campaign was something to desire.

Moreover, Xbox truly needs a good first-person shooter in its arsenal to widen its library of exclusives. But it seems Xbox owners have to wait a little longer.

Remedy is famous for great single-player titles, such as Alan Wake, Control, and Quantum Break. Hence we can be hopeful that Remedy will give their all to make Crossfire X a unique experience.

The devs also stated that classic titles such as Metal Gear Solid and Resident Evil are some of their biggest inspiration for the game. These are reasons enough to be excited for.

Xbox Series X and S owners now have to wait to try out their newest fps title. Hard luck for shooter fans on Xbox, as both Bright Memory and Crossfire X delayed to next year. Nevertheless, hopes are high for both next-gen titles.
