Female playable characters will not be making an appearance in Ruffian Games' upcoming third-person shooter, Crackdown 2. This feels like a familiar story, as female models also didn't make the cut in the first Crackdown. What was the reason both times? Memory constraints. To incorporate different, female models and the animations that come along with them, other parts of the game would have to be scaled back. Ruffian Games didn't feel like what would be lost would be worth what could be gained.
