Monday, 27th January 2014 09:42 GMT By Mike Irving

Two Microsoft heads have tweeted some intriguing comments tonight, hinting at a possible announcement for tomorrow morning, and now Crackdown studio Ruffian Games may have teased some kind of announcement. Judge for yourself here.

UPDATE 2: Twitter sleuth Lifelower has unearthed evidence that shows Ruffian Games recently created a 60FPS, first-person prototype for Microsoft.

UPDATE: Crackdown 2 developer Ruffian Games just tweeted this:

It follows the below teasing from Microsoft, and comments regarding Crackdown 3 from Phil Spencer. He clearly wants to see it happen, and isn’t being shy about it. But what do you think?

ORIGINAL STORY: Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft Studios, tweeted “Personally going to be a good day tomorrow, looking forward to a games announce (sic) coming early in the morning, fun part of the job.”

Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb echoed the sentiment, with “Looks like I’ve got a a (sic) busy morning coming up tomorrow :)”

What could it be about? What would you like it to be about? Speculate away in the comments below.

Thanks, Gematsu.

    Is this a proper tease, or did they pay someone to ‘leak’ it?

    Whatever this game is I know it’s going to be the best next-gen game so far. It’ll run at minimum of 1080p, 60fps too and put Sony to shame!

    *awaits payment from Microsoft*

    If its a BIG game (money making wise), shouldn’t they wait for GDC or E3? More hype will be generated there.

    Seeing how Ruffian Games DESTROYED Crackdown franchise with their sequel, I’m really worried about whatever game that gets announced. What happened to Sunset Overdrive and Below?
