Crackdown is one of those games that decent people struggle to find a bad word to say about, even if it's not one of their favorite games ever. It's simply a damn fun little title, and that's a real accomplishment. But where's the sequel? Word of a follow up game is as quiet as ever, but Microsoft Game Studios boss Phil Spencer has at least hinted that Crackdown 2 is definitely on the cards.
Speaking with Major "Larry Hryb" Nelson on Mr. Major's Spectacular Podcasterooni, Spencer had the following conversation:
Nelson: I’m here to tell you on behalf of the community, I want - we need - another Crackdown. That’s all I’m going to say, so you don’t have to confirm for deny anything. I’m just saying we want it.
Spencer: Yes, Crackdown’s one of my favourites. I'll leave it at that.
A Crackdown sequel is inevitable, I think. It's a hot community favorite, reviews were generally favorable, and it's one of the more unashamedly fun Xbox 360 exclusives out there. Microsoft wants it, we want it, all that's left is for Realtime Worlds to add those numbers up and make it.
