Strategy Informer's Mike Bowden interviewed Derek Littlewood of Free Radical Design about its upcoming title Haze, due to be released in May exclusively for the PS3. Free Radical is known for their TimeSplitters series, first-person shooters with a cartoonish style and relaxed tone.
Mike Bowden: How much has the constant multi-format speculation affected your team? Have they been able to shield themselves from the press, or has it made things difficult at all?
Derek Littlewood: I can appreciate the frustration that many gamers have felt about the multi-format speculation, but that's just the thing – most of it has been speculation, not fact. And when that results in people getting angry at the development team, I think that's a bit unfair. But then, we equip our teams with sturdy iron pants here at FRD so they can generally weather any amount of angst. Plus they're wipe-clean, which comes in handy.
