ScottishGames has reported that a new developer called Ruffian might be setting up shop in Dundee. That’s in Scotland, if the link didn’t tip you off earlier. So what’s so special about that?
Well, Gamasutra has also followed up on this reporting that the people doing the scouting and founding are none other than members of the team that had developed Crackdown, that oh so awesome Xbox 360 superhero sandbox title where you could earn an achievement for punting a corpse or juggling vehicles in the air with rockets. I thought it was an underrated title that should have gotten more attention, but it seems to have succeeded as a cult favorite long after its release. To hear some people talk about Crackdown on the forums recently, it seems to have gotten a better reception a few years later now that getting it for the Halo 3 beta is kind of pointless.
If this means that a new Crackdown might be on its way, woohoo! I’m totally for it.
