No Female Agents In Crackdown 2

I play every video game as a female character if given the option. I don't know why. I just do. Sadly, I won't have that option when Crackdown 2 comes out. The game will not offer girl-cops.

“In Crackdown, the amount of memory that it was going to take for it to do all the actual animation, the texture sets and the models for the females – we would’ve needed to massively reduce other sections of the game,” creative director Billy Thomson told 1UP at PAX East last week. “So rather than do two separate models, we cut it back and gave the player as much customization as we could on the male character and that allowed us to use that extra memory to do other things in the game.”

"It's actually the same reason again," Thomsen said. "When it came to Crackdown 2, you've got four players (in cooperative play), and that means every single player can be a different character and that has to be in memory all the time. We had to save memory all over the place because we've got so much more content in this game than we had in the first game. We don't stream."

"It'd be great (to have female characters), but what we were going to lose didn't seem like it'd be worth it. If we had more memory, it'd be okay."

Also: No Yeti agents. Probably because they don't have the real-life models. Once we catch Bigfoot, I'm sure there will be Yetis options in all games.
