All it took was one sound, and the crowd went wild. Visions of Agency tower climbs filled our heads, and then we heard a familiar voice. The agent in all of us suddenly sprung to life as Microsoft announced what has long been rumored, Crackdown 2. While no gameplay was shown, we did get a trailer. It looks like Crackdown is going down a darker path as agents clean up the city from some sort of disease or infection. Perhaps this big guy comes out of the sewer at the end?
The game is being developed by Ruffian Games, who are comprised mostly of Crackdown vets. We don't know how many cooperative players the game will support, but it will support co-op. For now, feast your eyes on the trailer and pray that 2010 comes very very soon.
