Crackdown Devs Form New Studio, Working On Crackdown 2?

Illustration for article titled Crackdown Devs Form New Studio, Working On Crackdown 2?

Oh boy. According to a Gamasutra report, several members of the Crackdown development team - including lead designer Billy Thomson - have formed a new development studio. And "may" be working on Crackdown 2.


The "form a new studio" bit, that's legit. They're called Ruffian Games, and are based in Dundee, Scotland. But the Crackdown bit?

Gamasutra only state that there are "unconfirmed reports" that the studio are working on it at the moment. Though it's certainly possible, what with the composition of this team, the fact they're not at Realtime (who developed Crackdown) working on APB and the fact Microsoft got awful coy the other day about the possibility of a second Crackdown.

I would love to see a Crackdown sequel. I am proud to say that I bought that game-on the advisory of all you fine folks-because it seemed promising, and not because I gave a damn about the Halo 3 beta [read: demo]. I thoroughly enjoyed the game, and when they gave us free cheats to really open it up and go overboard with strength and agility, infinite health and all that, well that was just gravy.
