Wardevil "Still In Development," But Has A "Changed Direction"

Wardevil has sort of turned into the Duke Nukem of consoles. But perhaps the saga of ongoing emptiness won't reach 2011.

First announced way back in 2005, even before the PlayStation 3 was ever on store shelves, the Digi-Guys-developed Wardevil has been lurking on the back burner for years. Many assumed it just wasn't happening but in fact, according to a confirmation during a Siliconera interview, the game is "still in development." Ignition New Business Development Director, Shane Bettenhausen said as much, so we're all wondering if the final product - supposedly set to run in full 1080p HD and 60 frames per second - might actually get a release date. Said Bettenhausen:

"We also have a studio in London. Their game was previously announced, itís called WarDevil. Thatís been in development for quite sometime. Iíd would say the game is still in development, but itís changed direction a bit."

He even says it'll be revealed "hopefully, by the end of the year." Or, actually, he says the "new direction" will be unveiled at the end of the year, so perhaps we still have a long time to wait. Who knows? At this point, I think all we really want is a launch estimate and some real footage. "Hopefully," that isn't impossible...

So what kinda game is this? I've never heard of this game. The screenshot looks nice, but with this uncertainty, maybe not representative of the finished product?

This game really doesn't exist, and I and probably most people don't give a damn either way

I'd like to know more about it. I don't know if it's a new IP or a sequel to another one but either way, until I hear something negative directly related to the actual game, when it's eventually completed, I'll keep an eye out for more info!

I've never heard of it Ben, I'd like to hear more about it, especially if it's in 1080p at 60 frames per second. That sounds like a ps3 exclusive to me, unless this is a computer game.

See I know nothing about it, where can we find info on this game.

Yea, never heard of it. Any chance we might get some more info on the game?
Genre/platforms etc.

edit:// according to wiki it's a post-apocalyptic hack 'n slash. The proprietary RTE1080 engine shall ensure a visual fidelity that surpasses pre-rendered FMV sequences.
Sounds very ambitious.

No one really cares about this game, its just the company trying to keep their name out there

Even Duke Nukem is "Forever" worried that this game will never see a pre-apocalyptic light of day.

Didn't you lads do a preview of this way back when? I know you've definitely posted something about it. One question. Why are y'all striking it down as vapourware with a six year dev cycle? Have you never heard of GT5? Might be interesting, but I'm not likely to get it. Unless, of course, I see something about it that piques my interest.
Peace.

"full 1080p HD and 60 frames per second"

I just love the grand promises of games that will never exist.

Did you hear the one about FFVsXIII having player controlled airships?

Good luck with that.

I never even heard anything about it until a some time ago when ______ mentioned it, I looked it up, the only thing I know is that it's gonna play like GOW but with 1080p HD and 60 fps.

It's PS3 exclusive as well but so far, there's no gameplay footage.

Am I the only thinking that they're saying it's gonna run at 1080p and 60 fps just to get some attention to this game?

And who the hell are Digi-guys?
Any notable games from them?

It looks like a action hack 'n slash.. something from my neck of the woods.
I could imagine most games like this would have a "changed direction" after the release of GoW3 =p .... the graphics, oh for the love of man the graphics.....


Anyhow, I'm so leery these days when reading about 1080p....
It's an abused often misunderstood term that hasn't translated to games that actually render at true 1920x1080 pixel resolutions.

Props to Super Stardust HD. The dudes who programmed that shooter initially had the game running at a sub-1080p res.. but now having learned some SPU tricks for 3D output the latest patch for the game has it running at a true 1080p. Woo hoo!

apparently this was shown off behind closed doors at GDC this year and yes it was running in full HD 60FPS.
im really looking forward to this, its looking like the game GOW3 should of been.
hopefully they dont make the same mistake GOW3 did and spend all their time on the graphics.
hopefully they put some big puzzles in the game to break up the flow of the game.
i can only spend so much time ripping people in half before it starts to get tiresome!
