A developer never wants their project to be dubbed "vaporware" by the media, but Wardevil has been flirting with that damaging label for some time now.
Wardevil: Unleash the Beast Within by Digi-Guys was announced all the way back in 2005 (even before the PlayStation 3 launched), and was initially canceled for the Xbox 360. Then it quietly became a PS3 exclusive, but we haven't heard much about it since; the game's official website hasn't been updated with new content since 2008. Obviously, all of this points towards the dreaded "vaporware" assignment, but at the end of last year, Digi-Guys insisted that Wardevil was "progressing to plan," and they even said they were adding "Wardevil Chronicles," a 2D cartoon that would enhance the game's storyline. Now, as noted by GameZine , Ignition Entertainment (the game's publisher) has revealed a new official website with a comment by Ajay Chadha, Ignition's president:
"We are determined to live up to our commitment to bring premium quality games to multiple platforms. We look forward to utilizing this website to help communicate news and information with our partners and unite our fans and gamers worldwide."
You can view a new teaser trailer and ponder the words "Coming Soon," which may indicate a late 2009 release. At this point, we can only hope that the title really is moving along towards the final development stages, because we've always liked the concept and style of Wardevil . We'll keep you updated and let you know what transpires.
