EGM Rumors: Crackdown Sequel Squashed, EA Entering the Octagon

The juiciest tidbit from the April issue of EGM is kind of a bummer: A Crackdown sequel looks like it won't happen any time soon. Sure, Microsoft has danced around the idea of making another addictive orb-hunting shooter, but Quartermann says even if Crackdown 2 does come to fruition, original developer Realtime Worlds probably won't be making it.

It also seems like Sony's unique PSP game Patapon will have some sort of spin-off; rumor is something Patapon-related will pop up on the PlayStation Network.

wasn't it confirmed that there would be no sequel last year??

sucks...but I'll go for APB

But I don't see why they wouldn't have a crackdown sequel in the works.

It sure as hell sold decently. Financially, it would be poor decision making NOT to in on a sequel to crackdown.

I'm sure that had nothing to do with the Halo 3 demo being in there. Yep, absolutely nothing at all.

Crackdown was an awesome game, but it got a push, if you know what I mean.

lodossrage3888d ago

But BECAUSE of that lil push from HALO 3, the game itself got out in the open. And it was well-received and considered a viable game for the 360.

So if they did make a sequel, it wouldn't need the extra push the second time around.

If you think about it was a great idea. Now if they lanch another game they already have that "awsome title" that its following up. It may have its own big push

im glad you added

"Crackdown was an awesome game, but it got a push, if you know what I mean."

to the end of your comment otherwise i would have completely disagreed with you lol, yeah its a good game, i was one of the few that bought the game because of playing the demo from marketplace, nothing to do with Halo 3 beta as until Halo 3 i hadnt played the series.

Never heard of such a claim. Hmmm.... Seems like APB be the focus.

green3888d ago

i rather they concentrate on APB.Crackdown can come after that

candystop3888d ago

I'm pretty sure we wont see crackdown 2 until sometime next year so for now I hope they stay focused on APB!

Snukadaman3888d ago

It said some other studio was already working on crackdown 2 if I remember...anyone else remember that?
