Techland, developer behind western shooter Call of Juarez
, has announced that it is delaying the launch of it's next title, Warhound
, until next year sometime.
was originally announced in 2007 as an open-world shooter where players take on mercenary assignments from around the world, researching and selecting equipment and plans as they go. The game is supposed to be very non-linear and emergent, though tangible evidence has been thin on the ground.
Originally announced for the PC and Xbox 360, it seems that a PlayStation 3 version of the game is also in the works as the developer has admitted it's the PS3 which is causing all the problems. Apparently the team is having a lot of trouble getting the Chrome engine to work on the PlayStation 3.
Techland also hinted to Eurogamer
that it is working on a secret project as well that has delayed the release of Warhound
Techland is currently working on at least two other games too - sci-fi shooter Chrome 2
and zombie survival epic Dead Island
. Details on both titles has been scarce though, with the Polish developer keeping quiet on planned features and release dates.
