Prototype Set For Release In June
Up until now, we really had no idea when Prototype was scheduled to release. But now, it appears it may be dropping sooner than expected, which is good news for action fans.
According to Joystiq, the estimated release date was hidden in a New York Comic Con invitation from Activision, which first announced a hands-on presentation of the game at the upcoming event. Then, quite simply, it said Prototype is "planned for release in June," which is only five short months away. From what we've seen of the game so far, it could be one of the most intense, brutal and atmospheric experiences of the new generation. We've accumulated some very cool videos of this game over the past year or so, and you've gotta check 'em out: there's the developer interview, which shows off powers, weapons and combat (dude just got ripped in half!), a New York City Developer Diary from GDC 2008, and the latest Reveal Trailer that just became available at the start of 2009. After watching all this, you should be pretty pumped about the game's potential; I know we are. Killzone 2 may rule the roost now, but we could always use an in-your-face third-person action/adventure title, right?
Hopefully, we'll get a solidified release date soon, but for now, just be happy it's scheduled for June. If it does launch then, it will finally be time to take down attack helicopters using only our crazy inherent skills!
