Ruffian Games, which is the studio best known for Crackdown 2, has apparently landed a new contract for a high-profile triple A title. While it isn’t yet known what this new title will be or which publisher has contracted with the Scottish studio, we see that the studio is ramping up hiring.
Beyond the revolution that the new title will be a multi-platform offering, everyone seems to know that this project is in addition to Crackdown 3 (which is apparently in development). Work on this new title will be done by a second team at the studio as hiring continues for this project.
While the original ads placed by the studio confirmed the new project, they have since been changed to make them more generic as to what these positions will be working on. Look to hear more about this in the E3 time frame, according to the whispers we are hearing.
