Speaking in an interview with VG247, Ruffian creative director Billy Thomson has said the play location will be “altered” for Crackdown 3.

What in the way now?

“When we go to Crackdown 3 things’ll alter again. But yeah, for Crackdown 2 it made more sense to stick in the same city, because it is pushing on from the idea of the Freak fires and how they’ve affected the city,” said Thomson.

“It’s not a case of doing it because it’s quicker. If anything it’s taken just as long to re-do what’s already there, because we’ve got to make sure we don’t break what we spent so much time getting right in the first game.”

There’s no date on Crackdown 2 as yet. Or Crackdown 3, for that matter.
