Een aantal weken geleden waren er al geruchten dat Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge Live-support zou bevatten, doordat er op screenshots een menu was te zien met Live-mogelijkheden. Microsoft wilde dit echter niet bevestigen en het bleef bij een gerucht.

Maar vandaag komt Microsoft dan toch met een officiëel persbericht dat Crimson Skies via Xbox Live te spelen zal zijn.Microsoft Game Studios announced today that "Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge" for Xbox will arrive this fall with full Xbox Live support. Up to 16 players will be able to compete online or by System Link in a variety of game modes including Dogfight, Team Dogfight, Flag Heist, Wild Chicken, Keep Away and Team Keep Away. Crimson Skies owners will also be able to download fresh content, including new maps and planes, via Xbox Live.

Gamers have yet to experience online action this intense on a console. Pilots won't be limited to staying in their cockpits during online matches, as it's now possible to jump clear out of a plane and into stationary AA (Anti-Aircraft) guns for an added boost of firepower. Although Crimson Skies is based in the air, you won't find a flight simulation here -- this game has been tuned for pure action with easy pick-up-and-play controls. Het complete verhaal is te vinden op Team Xbox. Na maanden van uitstel zou de Xbox versie van Crimson Skies in juni in de winkels moeten liggen.
