Despite the dynamic pairing of good sales and majority acclaim for Crackdown
, Shane Kim grew cagey when questioned about the status of a sequel at DICE
, during an interview with Game|Life
. "I don't really want to talk about that discussion," said Kim when asked to comment on reports that Realtime Worlds would not develop a sequel to last year's successful super-cop sandbox shooter. What Kim did clarify is that Microsoft owns the Crackdown
IP and is free to pursue development of a sequel with a new studio. "I think that customers would like to see more in that space," Kim vaguely noted, "So that's an option for us."
