It was previously known that the developer of Crackdown, Ruffian Games, was currently working on an Unreal Engine 4 game, but up until now we didn’t know much more than that.
We’ve been doing some digging through Linkedin profiles and finally came up with some new information on the title that Ruffian Games iw working on. The Lead Artist of Ruffian Games, Paul Large lists on his experience tab that he’s currently working on an untitled action game utilizing Unreal Engine 4. You can see the listing just below.

While it’s not exactly all that surprising, another developer, Barry Cairns does confirm on his page that the title is a next-generation title. Again, you can see the listing below.
If the title was listed as an open world action adventure title, we’d have much more confidence that the title was indeed Crackdown 3. However, in 2007 Crackdown did win the BAFTA award for “Best Action and Adventure Game”, so at the same time, this could easily point at Crackdown 3 being in development. We’ll be on the lookout for more information in the coming months leading up to E3.
What do you think about a next-generation Crackdown title using Unreal Engine 4? Let us know in the comments below.
