Crackdown developer pushing for GTA MMO

allpointsbulletinWith the awesome success that is GTA IV, we’re all wondering how GTA developer Rockstar Games will capitalize on the newly introduced yet insanely popular multiplayer modes in the official fourth title. Two days ago, we proposed a question if a GTA MMO could triumph World of Warcraft; could this question actually come to fruition?

According to a credible source, Crackdown developer Realtime Worlds purposely bought the rights to its upcoming MMO All Points Bulletin in order to sell back to Rockstar Games as GTA Online.

Realtime Worlds has strong connections with the GTA franchise; its founder David Jones assisted in development of the original GTA title. The company also employs other developers that helped in the GTA franchise.

The source elaborated on how the company would support the game, "One of which is to launch it and support it themselves, and the other one is to look for another partner; someone else who may well be interested and have the infrastructure [to support it],"

Realtime Worlds is not working on Crackdown 2, so if they’re fully focusing on polishing All Points Bulletin, maybe it could be considered a worthy GTA multiplayer title.
