After tons of delays before and after the rights to Devil’s Third were reverted back to Valhalla Games, it appears that the game will finally be released sometime this year. According to the studio, the game is currently around 80% complete and they’ll be pressing over the next couple months to complete and then release the game.
The game was originally supposed to be released by THQ before it went bankrupt and things have been pretty quiet about the game since then. I’m still on the fence in terms of whether or not I think this game will actually be any good but at the very least its release will be a credit to the persistence of Tomonobu Itagaki. For those of you that don’t know, Devil’s Third is a third-person shooter with melee combat elements set during a modern-day world war. It’s Itagaki’s first game since his controversial departure from Tecmo in 2008.
