No 'Crackdown' (X360) Sequel ...

Crackdown pushes the action-driving hybrid genre into the next generation with the introduction of the first-ever truly 3-dimensional persistent playground, highly innovative co-op gameplay and an extensive prop interaction system all while taking place in a massive and highly-stylized urban center.
In an interview with Develop Magazine, RealTime Worlds producer Phil Wilson said the team is "heartbroken" that there won't be a Crackdown 2. By the time Microsoft approached RealTime Worlds to talk about a sequel, the team had already moved on to "bigger, better things," probably referring to APB, or its confirmed, but yet to be announced, secret title. Depending on who owns the naming rights, this means Microsoft might ask some other team to look into a sequel, or the issue will be revisited at a later time.
