Crackdown Sequel Not Happening

Crackdown cover artIn an interview with Develop, Realtime Worlds, developer of the titular Xbox 360 sandbox action game, revealed that a sequel to Crackdown is not in development at this time.  Why would Realtime Worlds abandon its hot new IP that has already topped a million sold?  Producer Phil Wilson explained, “Microsoft were a little late in stepping up to the plate to ask for Crackdown 2, and by then we had already started working on bigger, better things.”

Wilson let slip that the studio is busy working on two projects: a cops-and- robbers-themed MMO called APB, as well as a top secret project planned for a 2009 release.  In other words, a Crackdown sequel could happen someday, but don’t hold your breath.

I suppose it isn't out of the question [i]eventually[/i], but it sounds like they're all tied up in other endeavours at the moment. It is a bummer, though. I really enjoyed the first one and thought if they had come up with a few more things to do (besides orb-hunting, of course) it could have been really spectacular.
