A new entrant into the Crackdown
series was revealed by the creator of the original and all-round industry legend Dave Jones during Microsoft's E3 conference earlier today. The trailer shows multiple agents, led by those dulcet tones of the Agency Director, teaming up to take down a Los Muertos leader with a whole new level of destructive force. The game is being developed by Cloudgine, a studio that includes many of those who used to work at Realtime Worlds, developers of the original Crackdown
before they were closed.
Speaking as someone who loved the original Crackdown
and as a native of Dundee, home of all three studios that have been involved with the franchise (Realtime Worlds, Ruffian Games and now Cloudgine), I'm desperate for this game to be great again. That, and I can't wait to hear the sweet sounds of those orbs again.
