Crackdown 2 has been given a fixed release date by Microsoft Game Studios. Revealed on the Twitter feed of Graeme Boyd, better known as AceyBongos, the date has been announced as Friday 9th July 2010.
Crackdown 2 is set in the vertical, free-form world of Pacific City, where tensions are high and escalating exponentially between the Agency and its opposing factions, the Cell and the Freaks. Returning to Pacific City as an advanced Agent, you’ll be judge, jury and executioner as you reclaim the city and eliminate all threats, either solo or with friends on Xbox LIVE.
Building upon the groundbreaking success of its predecessor, Crackdown 2 will elevate the open-world genre to unprecedented levels with the ultimate cooperative and competitive multiplayer experiences. Friends around the world will be able to sweep the streets of crime and lawlessness with the complete freedom to explore, destroy and restore justice to Pacific City — by any means necessary.
To commemorate the announcement, the first ViDoc for the highly-anticipated sequel from Ruffian Games has been released and viewable below:
