Crackdown fans rejoice! Word is coming out today that Microsoft plans to release Crackdown 2 in early July. To be more specific it will hit America on July 6th, Asia/Australia/New Zealand on July 8th, and Europe at a later date.
The open-world, orb collecting follow-up to the successful 2007 original is looking to be a much better product than its predecessor. Though it will be interesting to see if the product can stand on its own two feet, and not have to be supported by the inclusion of the Halo 3 beta.
It is nice to start seeing publishers putting out games like this in the Summer. Maybe developers have learned that gaming is a year-round hobby.
