Realtime Worlds confirms ongoing Crackdown 2 Negotiations

Realtime Worlds confirms ongoing Crackdown 2 Negotiations

In hopes that the more hype the news world generates the faster Realtime Worlds can get to the development side of this deal i got a statement issued exclusively to VG247 here for you guys and girls to check out, i just cant wait for this game to get rolling even if it means hunting more of those damn orbs.

Here is the statement issued exclusively to VG247: The full statement, emailed from MacDonald, is published below.

I just wanted to correct the rumours today surrounding Crackdown. Although to date we haven’t had an offer from Microsoft for the Crackdown sequel rumoured, we continue to have ongoing discussions with them. In the unfortunate event that there isn’t an agreement with RTW reached, Dave said he would “be gutted not to be involved, but if it had to be that way, I would want to see it done justice – by an established, renowned developer that had the track record of delivering the quality gaming experience Crackdown players would demand.”

In any event, I also very much doubt that Microsoft would harm an otherwise fruitful existing development relationship by gambling on funding Crackdown 2 with a startup on RTW’s doorstep, for obvious reasons.

Regarding the rumoured RTW departures, we believe that maybe five or six ex-Realtime Worlds staff have been employed by Ruffian in recent weeks. Whilst we’re always sad to lose any member of the RTW family, fans should rest assured that the vast majority of the Crackdown team remain at RTW, and our 200+ talented individuals are working hard towards APB being one of the biggest launches of 2009, as well as on an unannounced project that will cause quite a stir when unveiled.

So here's to the hope that the Crackdown 2 negotiations go well and that we all have a copy of this game in hand A.S.A.P.
