is one of those titles that has been an unsung hero of "Next Gen." The graphically gorgeous game is being developed by Remedy, the same company that brought us Max Payne
. Indeed, many people have been looking forward to this title, despite its lack of press in comparison to Halo 3
and Gears of War
Unfortunately, it looks like you may be waiting
a little bit longer. Rumours are everywhere that the game will be delayed out to 2008, which will likely dishearten many enthusiastic gamers. Until then, it looks like we'll be getting our fix with screenshots. Since there is little in the way of fact, it is assumed this will be for both the PC and the XBox 360 versions of the game.
Neither Remedy nor Microsoft are commenting on the release rumour, which is largely to be expected. DailyTech notes that it's unfair to call it a delay, and they're technically right - a release date for the game has never been announced. Of course, we did get a bit of a teaser at IDF 2006, when Intel ran the program to the awe of attendees on its Kentsfield setup.
