New Crackdown Goes Multiplayer in a Big Way

"Hello, Agent." Man, we've all missed that voice, huh?

CORRECTION: The original version of this post stated that Platinum Games would be working on the new Crackdown. This isn't the case. It's being developed by series creator Dave Jones and a new UK studio called Cloudgine, which is made up of former Crackdown developers. We regret the error.

Not only is original Crackdown creator Dave Jones leading the re-invigoration of the fan-favorite open-world series, he's working with action-game maestros Platinum Studios to bring the game to Xbox One. The guys who made Metal Gear: Revengeance and Bayonetta going open-world? This could be very good.
