From Strategy Informer: "Crackdown 2 is the sequel to the 2007 game by Realtime Worlds. This game was the brainchild of David Jones who created the original Grand Theft Auto, and bizarrely, Lemmings. At first readers may be worried by the fact that this game was actually made by Ruffian studios, a new start-up company, but the reports from Microsoft is that over half of the development team is from Realtime Worlds anyway. This leaves the game with a rather unique combination of the fresh perspective a new develop gives a franchise, but also the experience and 'inside-knowledge' that the creators also have. It seems to have worked more or less in the game's favour, at any rate. "
