Crackdown 2 Developers Working on New Rockstar Game

Crackdown 2 developer Ruffian Games is hiring talents to reportedly work on new project for Rockstar Games.

British video game developer Ruffian Games has made a name for themselves in video game industry after working on Xbox 360-exclusive action-adventure game Crackdown 2 back in 2010 for publisher Microsoft Game Studios.

After rumors starts flying about developer/publisher Rockstar Games having multiple new games in development and confirmed by a former employee, it is revealed lately that Ruffian is involved in one of their upcoming projects.

Following their successful stint on second installment of Crackdown series, they contributed to Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Crackdown 3 multiplayer mode Wrecking Zone this year alongside several other projects.

Their job listing on official site is looking to hire talents for a few positions for multiplayer action games including roles like senior engineer, senior gameplay engineer and UI engineer but no mentions for Rockstar Games are found there.

However, they recently retweeted an article shared by Scottish Games Network that mentioned about working on games for Rockstar.

Both Rockstar and Ruffian are Scottish companies and the latter is comprised of former developers of Grand Theft Auto series. These are some relatable factors for starters that make their partnership great and meaningful.

There is no clear indication of what they will be working on though except for their "multiplayer action games" title will be for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and "future platforms", meaning upcoming PlayStation 5 and Project Scarlett.

Rockstar made huge bucks from their 2013 action-adventure title Grand Theft Auto V, which is one of the best-selling games of all time. In 2019, they brought home more cash from Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Redemption 2.

They may or may not be working on long-anticipated game Bully 2 and possibly an online multiplayer mode for it. Their plan of working on games for next-generation consoles as well as current platforms doesn't mean much either.

RELATED: PlayStation 5 to Release in Holiday 2020

There was rumor of Grand Theft Auto VI being a PS5 launch title featuring a female protagonist and an even bigger map than GTAV. Before Rockstar released GTA5 on PS4 and Xbox One, they brought the game on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 first.

Since GTA6 is likely to be a much larger release than any of their previous games, Rockstar Games may not bring their next project to older platforms and despite their vast resources, has recruited Ruffian Games for additional support.

Red Dead Online May Have Teased Undead Nightmare

Rockstar Games may be teasing Undead Nightmare for Red Dead Online with zombies showing up in-game.

Within a month after launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Western-themed action-adventure smash-hit title Red Dead Redemption 2 has added its multiplayer component Red Dead Online but it failed to be just as successful.

After brand-new Frontier Pursuits update is deployed earlier this month, many players have reported sighting of zombies in RDO and skeptical fans theorizes that developer/publisher Rockstar Games is teasing Undead Nightmare.

It starts with one Redditor noticing dead bodies lying around near swamp area after last week's update, which he originally thought to be a glitch. Then some more corpses were found that has pale blue skin and doesn't seem like glitch anymore.

The first zombie NPC that was ever sighted near swamp was not lying down and had grayish skin color. Also, Halloween is only months away from now, so it is possible that Rockstar is cooking something for their cowboy adventure.

Image of that creepy-looking zombie lady is made it to Twitter and players started speculating about it on social media.

Couple of more blue-skinned dead bodies found near Armadillo, which could later serve as a ground zero for an outbreak. They were all lying in a small hole in the ground for a while and couple of them was on a nearby wagon.

There is once instance where there are two glowing green-eyed dead bodies in a house that has been viciously murdered with their clothes and skin torn. Either it was a robber that killed them or an infected person before then they start turning.

Now whether their implementation is of a DLC expansion of original Red Dead Redemption or just a limited time event for upcoming Halloween season is not clear to anyone yet but these piles of corpses are real source of spook.

Rockstar launched Undead Nightmare as a paid DLC with single-player missions, events as well as some multiplayer game modes on Halloween of 2010 and within the premise of Red Dead Online, something similar is very much possible.

Rockstar Games May Have Teased Bully 2

An Easter egg from Rockstar Games found within latest GTA Online casino update may have teased Bully 2.

When originally launched back in 2006 for PlayStation 2 platform, action-adventure game Bully from developer/publisher Rockstar Games never really was a smash-hit title like some other well-established franchises from the studios.

However, it gained enough fan following in later years that fans are looking forward to a follow-up sequel for some time and a recently discovered hidden message in latest update for Grand Theft Auto Online is clearly hinting at Bully 2.

RELATED: GTA Online Breaks All-Time Biggest Day and Week Records

Last month, Rockstar Games have rolled out a free update for GTA Online titled Diamond Casino & Resort to added extra content to online multiplayer mode of Grand Theft Auto V and fans have discovered clues for a Bully sequel.

There is a wall piece found within penthouse decoration that says "Canis Canem Edit", which is title of the game's European version. Also, a secret message hidden in morse code was there as well that translates to a phrase "DNA4".

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2: Undead Nightmare Teased?

Bully-based content creator YouTuber SWEGTA has found this fan-theory that strongly supports indications of a sequel.


RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Hits 17 Million Sales

In a first glance, DNA4 actually means nothing at all but if you reduce all letters and numbers that has summed up from the morse code, then the word itself becomes BLY2, which could most likely be Bully 2 if not most definitely.

It may seem like a stretch for Rockstar Games to go through so much just to slide a hidden announcement. Then again, a revolver in Red Dead Redemption 2 also had the same "Canis Canem Edit" reference engraved in it.

RELATED: Bully 2 Rumored to Release in Holiday 2020

Earlier, SWEGTA claimed for Bully 2 to launch on fall 2020 for next generation of PlayStation and Xbox console platforms. Then again, Rockstar doesn't just release their titles one after another and prefers to take time instead.

It took them eight years to work on a sequel for Red Dead Redemption and five years to launch Grand Theft Auto V. Bully has only been out for thirteen years and if Bullworth Academy hasn't been forgotten, a sequel could be on the horizon.
