Those of you who have been following PlayStation 3 news throughout the generation may remember a game called Wardevil . And we know what your question is: what happened to it?

Well, here's an update : UTV Ignition Entertainment has announced "the conclusion of its studio review for the third-person action title, War Devil, which will now be called 'Project Kane.'" The project has the green light to proceed to production after nothing had happened for some time. It seems they needed to perform a once-over of the game before saying it was good to go; said UTV Ignition group chairman Hassan Sadiq:

"Following a comprehensive audit of the title, assets and internal team, we have decided that a core team responsible for the Project Kane prototype will take the game into full production, led by the key vision holders.

There has been speculation recently about this project but our vision has always been to create top quality content both with internal and external partners and this latest commitment combines the best of the DNA behind the original project vision with some of the creative talent available in the broader industry. Outsourcing ensures flexibility and broader expertise that will dovetail perfectly with internal skill sets to speed up the process and ensure a title of true excellence."

Design Director Julian Glover added that they have "cherry-picked from some of the world's best teams to build our UK studio which includes personnel whose combined previous development credits include Burnout 3 , Crysis , LittleBigPlanet , and Heavenly Sword ." Well, having the requisite talent always helps, doesn't it? Right now, the freshly named Project Kane is loosely scheduled to arrive in Q4 2011, but at least now we know it still exists.  Stay tuned as the developers push forward.

Let's see, no gameplay trailer and no info?
Developer's name is………DigiGuys?

Ok…………how do you expect me to get hyped aside from hearing this game will "run" at 60 fps and native resolution 1080?

I remember reading on PSU that this game was officially canceled, about a month ago or so.

I just don't care about it anymore but hopefully it will still come out and prove itself.

I don't get it… They've built the engine? Is that what they're saying? They've barely started on the game itself? Oh well, good to know that something is happening, I guess.
Peace.

Wow this is some insane development time. And "Wardevil" at least sounds cool, "Project Kane" is a fail.

I stopped caring about this vaporware game when…. oh thats right, i never did care about it. If they can't produce a single decent trailer out of all the time we've been hearing about the game or any decent looking screen shots thats not over 3 years old, why should we care?

Glad to hear they're finally putting some confidence behind their project. And hey, the screenshots look interesting too.

Some harsh words lingering around here! With a q 4 release date, I think it's safe to say further updates will answer a lot of questions. The first question I want to ask is whether this is an exclusive or multi plat..?

yea?
ill believe it when i see it!
sorry, but yous have made a hell of allot of promises and really have shown nothing for years of work.
native 1080P and locked at 60FPS?
yea, again ill believe it when i see it!
if GT5 cant handle it, with just a track and cars on screen how is this?
theres going to be waaaaaaay more enemies, more visual effects, explosions……
yea, again, ill believe it when i see it.

Never heard of a Wardevil game but I have heard of Devil kings game which was basically Dynasty Warriors on crack. Well if it's an action title I'll give it a shot if it turns out to interesting enough.
