Kuju Places Redwood Falls "On Hold?"
The Xbox 360's Left 4 Dead turned out to be one of the best games of 2008, so PlayStation 3 owners were hoping Kuju Entertainment would come through with the PS3 exclusive zombie shooter, Redwood Falls.
First unveiled way back in 2006, PSU reports that the promising game is now officially "on hold." A Kuju representative made the statement, which comes as disappointing news to those who love to take shotguns to zombies and watch the gore fly. Gamers and journalists first got a chance to see the intense, over-the-top brutal shooter at the Japanese Play UK event over two years ago; Redwood Falls would show zombie bodies ripped apart in a very realistic way. At the time, many were hopeful and anxiously anticipating more updates from Kuju, but this isn't the update they were looking for. Then again, considering we haven't heard so much as a peep from this particular title since then, Redwood Falls likely isn't on anyone's radar right now. In fact, this is the first we're hearing of the game in a very long time, so it's not exactly shocking that it's on hold. Of course, this has yet to be confirmed by Kuju, but we'll just have to go with what the rep told PSU. We did want to get a closer look at this blood-soaked zombie-fest, but looking at the PS3's 2009 lineup, we figure we can live without it.
However, even if this is true, "on hold" doesn't mean "canceled." It simply means "postponed," so you may see Redwood Falls at some point. Just don't hold your breath, and be happy with what's actually coming down the pike for the PS3.
