Crackdown creator gets $31 million for Real Time Worlds

Real Time Worlds, founded by David Jones, creator of GTA and Lemmings, aquired $31 million last week from the venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates. Their first game, called Crackdown, comes out in Febuary of next Year, while APB's (All Points Bulletin) release date is as of yet unknown.

Both games seem to emulate the GTA franchise, but target different markets. Crackdown is a single and co-op player, sci-fi themed free roamer, being published by Microsoft Game Studios for Xbox 360. APB is a multi-player, gang based free roamer for the PC and Xbox 360, being published through the popular Korean MMO site Webzen, which hosts other games like MU, Soul of the Ultimate Nation and the upcoming Huxley.
