Earlier today we posted up some new screenshots of Southpeak and Timegate’s kickbutt FPS game, Section 8. As you may have read in the previous article, it appeared that it was only going to be available for PC from here on out. However, a little mishap in the press circuit may have caused gamers (and reporters) to become misinformed.
The article about Section 8 looking like a mix of Halo and Crysis infers that the game is a PC exclusive, save for the update at the bottom of the page. According to the press release from earlier today it was labeled only for PC and led many within the industry to believe that the 360 and PS3 versions had been axed.
Turns out, only the PS3 version won’t be making a turn-out to retailers later this year, as Section 8 is, indeed, scheduled for release on PC and Xbox 360. An e-mail from Southpeak's public relations let us in on the info, saying…” Section 8 is coming out for PC AND Xbox 360. Just thought you should know, since you sounded kind of disappointed (not that I would blame you).”
I’m not sure what happened in the process from when TimeGate’s project was acquired by Southpeak (in which case they were originally partnered with GameCock), but the PS3 will be missing out on a very noteworthy shooter for 2009. Too bad.
