Google Maps Doesn't Lie - Crackdown 2 Devs Are Next Door To Crackdown Devs

Microsoft asked if Realtime Worlds wanted to make a sequel to Crackdown too late; the developer had already moved onto their Grand Theft Auto-style online experience, APB: All Points Bulletin. Crackdown 2 moved forward anyway, though, with Ruffian Games nabbing the project, a new studio formed near Realtime Worlds in Dundee, United Kingdom that includes many folks from Realtime Worlds.

When Realtime Worlds CEO David Jones told GamesIndustry.biz the Ruffian Games situation frustrated him because the studio was was pulling talent from them, I don't think anyone quite grasped just how close the two developers were. So, I hopped into Google Maps and decided to find out and...wow!
