Ruffian, the studio behind Crackdown 2 hiring for a next-gen release
It looks like Ruffian Games is working on a new next-gen project according to newly advertised job vacancies.
A new job ad posted on the Scottish Games Network is looking for three C++ coders to help with “a large next-gen project” which is due to ship next year.
Ruffian was formed by a group of developers from Realtime Worlds who worked on the first Crackdown in order to work on Crackdown 2. They have been relatively quiet since Crackdown 2's lukewarm critical reception back in 2010.
They have been rumoured to be working on a reboot of the Project Gotham racing series with the death of Bizarre Creations. It is more likely that they are working on Crackdown 3 for the Xbox One due to the appearance of the Orbs in the Xbox One reveal back in May and assurances by Microsoft's Phil Spencer that the series is not dead.
