I've got a Monday morning rumor for you. Two words: Crackdown 2. Yeah, I perked up a little too. According to the latest Major Nelson podcast, in an interview with Microsoft Game Studios Boss, Phil Spencer, the good Major had this to say.
“I’m here to tell you on behalf of the community, I want - we need - another Crackdown,”
Senor Spencer went on to say
Yes, Crackdown’s one of my favourites, I’ll leave it at that.
Yeah, not much there eh? I agree, but when you have certain big names in the company wanting a project, there's a better chance that it'll actually see the light of day. Even developer Realtime Worlds had said that door is never closed, even though they are tied up right now developing the MMO APB.
For now we can dream of a city in which four, yes four, super agents leap tall buildings in a single bound. A city in which cars are tossed between friends. A city in which I rocket my buddy in the back and watch him fly halfway across the map in sheer delight. We all hope for an even more co-op friendly Crackdown 2.
