Microsoft Teases Possible New Crackdown Game
Microsoft Game Studios vice president Phil Spencer has teased the possible release of a next-gen Crackdown game. Fans of original Xbox 360 first-party games, rejoice.
According to IGN, Spencer commented on the absence of Crackdown at both the Xbox One reveal event and Microsoft’s E3 2013 press conference.
“Oh… Crackdown is one of my favorite games, and not just because it’s a Microsoft first-party game,” Spencer told 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.”
Spencer went on to say that he doesn’t think that Crackdown “is dead at all,” and that if the series were to progress on the Xbox One, it would likely take advantage of the cloud and feature “living, open worlds.”
