'I don't think Crackdown is dead at all,' says Spencer


Microsoft exec brings hope

Continuing in line with previous comments about open-world franchise Crackdown returning with the right team and time, Microsoft Game Studios VP Phil Spencer has again professed love for the property. "[It's] one of my favorite games, and not just because it’s a Microsoft first-party game," he said to IGN. "I have a lot of love for that franchise. The homage to Crackdown in the [May 21 event] reveal screenshots was ... I know there was some, like, 'Did we accidentally sneak that…?' It wasn't accidental. Definitely."

And in case there was any doubt left about the series' eventual return: "I don't think Crackdown is dead at all," Spencer stated. "It's a franchise that’s still close to me. I think there's a lot of room, especially ... For me, the natural progression for a game like Crackdown -- and you see this showing up on our stage -- is in these living, open worlds that live in the cloud.”

After the disappointing Crackdown 2, I absolutely agree that having a break is a good thing, even if my lack of patience says otherwise. I'd really like to see this come back in a meaningful way.
