WarDevil for Xbox 360 Not Cancelled

- Remember WarDevil? The post-apocalyptic game was originally slated as a multiplatform release way back when, but then the Xbox 360 version was scrapped so the development team, Digi-Guys, could focus on one platform. But then the game went into hiding for several years until, well, now.

Great news I'll be getting this version!

:D

StanLee3057d ago

Great news that the game is still in development. It had become vaporware at this point but it was one of the games I was looking forward to on PS3. I am on of those people who believe that a single platform focus makes for great games. Look at what we've seen recently of Infamous and Uncharted 2 on the PS3 and what we've seen of Splinter Cell Conviction and Alan Wake.

@ 357
great for you my friend!

buy the game on the console you want to play it the most!

:D

@ Stanlee

I see where your coming from.

peacock13057d ago

I wont be getting either version.

Game will suck IMO. That is if it is even real.

DarthTigra 3057d ago

That really wasn't needed

poindat3057d ago

It's not fair to be making those assumptions at this point in time, especially given the current state of PS3 multiplats (pretty much identical to the 360 versions).

You come across as desperate.

RememberThe3573057d ago

What have you seen that makes you excited? Nothing about this game has a history. The developer that is supposedly work on this game has never made a game before, and the publisher has only localized a few PSP and DS games from Japan. There is the CGI trailer, but what does that mean?

It's supposed to release with a movie but we have heard nothing of that either. We haven't seen them at E3 or any other trade show either. Until I get some gameplay, this game is vaporware.

La Chance3057d ago

I remember this game was on every PS3 fanboys list in 2007/2008.

Looks like crap to me.

Getting the 360 version if its any good (...but man does it look like crap !)

el zorro3057d ago

Even today multiplats aren't "pretty much identical". I've compared quite a few recent games and the 360 is still coming out ahead. Recent comparisons and face offs from Digital Foundry, Lens of Truth and others show the same thing. But never mind, you guys will just deny it to the ends of the earth.

Natsu X FairyTail3057d ago (Edited 3057d ago )

@ 357

Theres not much difference between us being excited for this game than people that are hyped after seeing Final Fantasy XIII Versus and F14 Online Trailers @ E308/09 !

taking your way of thinking into consideration:

"Until I see some FFXIII Versus Gameplay Its Vapoware"

Masamori Sumimura3057d ago

there is not enough out about this game but yeah if this comes out and its good I will buy it on xbox without a doubt

gamerdude113057d ago

This game will never be released on any platform. The developer has been trying to sell this game for years. I think there is a greater chance of a lawsuit then a release of this game.

JL3057d ago (Edited 3057d ago )

I never understood what the hype over this game was either. Especially with people talking like "omg this is a must-have, one of the most awesome games ever" (well, I kinda understood it from some. being as there are some of those extreme fanboys that will hype anything when it's allegedly exclusive). But for the others, I never saw the appeal of this. I'll wait til I actually see the game before making up my mind on whether it's even worth considering.

and @Natsu
There is a vast difference between being hyped for this game over a CGI trailer and being hyped over FF14 or Versus because of a CGI trailer. Square and Final Fantasy are established names with big followings. WarDevil and Digi-guys have done nothing and nobody knows anything about them. So really, it's the name that has people hyped for FFVersus and 14, not the CGI trailer. This game has only the trailer though, with no name to back it.

But yea, I'll consider this to be vaporware still until they actually show something as proof.

blind-reaper3057d ago

It is good supposing we ever see a this game hit the shelves, because the last 3 years we have only seeing 30 screenshot and a CGI video. Im expecting another Too Human

starchild3057d ago

This game is pure vaporware. It will never see the light of day and even if it does I will not be getting it for my 360 or any console because it will probably not be any good. Being in development for this long is not a good sign.

Bnet3433057d ago

What the ... ? Did I miss something? Wasn't this a PS3 exclusive?

RememberThe3573057d ago

It is different. We know who is making Final Fantasy, the developer has a long distinguished history of titles. The director of FFv13 is the same guy who did Kingdom Hearts. Final Fantasy has been one of the most consistent franchises in gaming.

WarDevil has nothing that points to it being a good game. If I saw some gameplay that looked fun then I'd agree with you and I'd look forward to this, as well. But we know nothing of the developer and the publisher has a very weak history.

What other then a CGI trailer gets you so exited for this game?

mastiffchild3057d ago

Frankly, I'll believe the game exists when I see something real-like gameplay five years after the project was first announced(as a multiplatform at the time as well). My friend applied for a job on the game when advertised in Jan this year and never even got a reply(he'd been working on a couple of PS3 games and has since gone to work for R* in Leeds and was very qualified for the Digiguys posting)which he said is very odd at that level-he felt they were either looking for more funding by postig the ads or he was completely overlooked as his application was lost at their end.

I must say that the announcement today seems like they must have got some cash from somewhere but still when we haven't had any actual news in ages or ever seen gameplay I wouldn't get too excited. I've wasted too much time researching the game only to come up with nothing but broken promises and odd practises that I doubt we'll ever see the game. Announcing it for 360 again only, imo, means another set of games will get the run around. There's little to suggest we'll seee anything ever-let alone soon!

coolirisGB3057d ago (Edited 3057d ago )

I kid, funny when PS3 fanboys use Bioshock as proof of games coming to PS3 Bioshock was the same situation as this game.

This was the only PS3 game I'v been waiting for. LOL Team Xbox never edited their site, it's always been listed for the 360 lol.

I might sell my PS3 if nothing big comes from Sony next year besides GOW3.

Tony P3057d ago

Great. Now 360 and PS3 gamers have the opportunity to wonder if the game will ever see the light of day.

Gue13057d ago

This game was hyped a little because devs promised that the game will have beautiful graphics rendered at 1080p and running at 60fps on the PS3. In fact, the CGI trailer is supposedly real-time...

Dark General3056d ago (Edited 3056d ago )

I still think this games looks lame and is going to be Vaporware. I've said it when it was a Ps3 exclusive, I'll say it again now that it's multiplatform.

pixelsword3055d ago (Edited 3055d ago )

...it's not like it didn't happen before with exclusive titles.

But since the source isn't named, I have to doubt it; especially since the "source" could be that disgruntled guy.

Say goodbye to 1080p and 60FPS.

La Chance3057d ago

Now say hi to the better running 360 version.

Double Toasted3057d ago

its coming to the 360? Guaranteed 60 fps...without breaking a sweat.

coolirisGB3057d ago

With no dips and higher resolution.

Ssxtreme363057d ago

regardless if your a ps3 fan or 360 fan, this game has pretty much become a "too human" seeing how its been in development for ages. its a shame that this game is taking so long in order to come out and in the process it has lost allot of its original hype from the ps3 fans.

all i can say now is, just show us some gameplay

midgetsanx3057d ago

If this game is good...Sure we've been given trailers and screens but.....WTH is this game about?!

N4PS3G3057d ago

This game is still smoke and mirrors if you ask me.

green3057d ago

pure vaporware until i see actual in game footage.

IdleLeeSiuLung3057d ago

Not only that, but the CGI wasn't very good. Notice how the protagonist (I assume) trust the weapon into the guy laying on the floor in the teaser video. The speed that it does it at looked weird, not to mention the movement look awkward.

Now it might be too early, and you should judge the game until some game play is released, but that teaser didn't tease me much, rather turn me off.

PirateThom3057d ago (Edited 3057d ago )

If they can't release anything for one platform what hope do they have for multiple platforms?

Don't get your hopes built up guys, the game doesn't even exist.

iChaos Amongus3057d ago

Hmmm I don't know who to believe. Pirate Thom or IGN. hmmmm

PirateThom3057d ago

What's to believe? The game is vapourware, until something is shown, it doesn't exist.

iChaos Amongus3057d ago

Did you read the article? Maybe it's taking longer to show now because there's a Xbox 360 version being developed also, which IGN just confirmed to be true.

RememberThe3573057d ago

You know what budy? Go ahead and be disappointed. The rest of us wont care either way.

We haven't seen squat of this game. The publisher has only done a few DS and PSP games, and Digi-Guys has done nothing.

iChaos Amongus3057d ago

My hopes up? Buddy? lol I don't think anyone really cares about it either way, but if IGN is saying it's coming to Xbox 360, it's probably coming to Xbox 360. I doubt their joking.

mastiffchild3057d ago

Take it from me (and I doubt IGN have looked into this much more than me-after all what they've done here is just respond to a press release which is ALL you ever get to hear about the game)there's VERY little reason to feel we'll see this on any platform soon. Do you think IGN were lying when it was just a PS3 game? Why hasn't that ever appeared in any playable form? The game was announced before either 360 or PS3 were launched and has been slated for release every year since 2007!

I suspect the dev to have posted non existent positions to allay fears the project was dead and feel our only hope of getting the game rests on whether they managed to get some cash from somewhere as it all reeks of a small dev being over ambitious and getting into difficulties. After aboout 5 years(of which half of them had this as a multi anyway as it was due for 360 from initial announcement, as reported in the mightly IGN-but still no playable hands on, no gameplay vids no nothing!)I've got tired of waiting and even DNF had this much for us to chew on!
