Cloudgine is joining Epic Games, but where does that leave Crackdown 3?

Cloudgine rose to the fore as a collaborator on Crackdown 3, providing development for the upcoming shooter’s cloud-powered destruction physics.

Although some of the systems were developed by Microsoft Research and demonstrated back at Build 2014, Cloudgine’s cloud-powered destruction physics were enlisted to power Crackdown 3’s multiplayer components, which features full-scale non-scripted destruction physics, allowing players to destroy entire skyscrapers with unprecedented realism.

Cloudgine recently was purchased by Epic Games, however, leading some to wonder how this might impact Crackdown 3. For those concerned, thankfully, it seems Crackdown 3 won’t be affected by Cloudgine’s jump to Epic, owing to this confirmation we received from a Microsoft spokesperson.
