WarDevil kind of falls into the same category as L.A. Noire ; development progress often remains a mystery and details are few and far between, but those in charge always pop up occasionally just to say, "yep, we're still working on it."
Now, we have more details – looks like the designers have finally emerged from darkness again – and they're pretty interesting. According to the most recent Edge edition , which hit store shelves across the pond this past week on September 29, the much-anticipated third-person action title is on the cover; we assume it's well-deserved, too. Included in that big unveiling is the statement that developer DigiGuys wanted to deliver "Hollywood-grade" visuals that run at a silky smooth 60 frames per second, "with no compromise on the fidelity of its high-resolution textures and a suite of filtering effects." That's a fairly boastful claim but Edge believes they might actually be true to their word, and we have to remember that the game is now "leading" on the PlayStation 3. In fact, running demos were being shown at the Tokyo Game Show last month and while some say it wasn't entirely complete, the technicals seem to be in place, at the very least. Of course, now we're all sorts of interested and we'd like to know about a release date, although we get the feeling it won't arrive until later next year.
Remember, we're talking about a title that we've known about for over three years, and the developers originally had it running on the first Xbox. So…it's been a while.
