UTV Ignition Entertainment today announce the conclusion of its studio review for the third-person action title, War Devil which will now to be called ‘Project Kane’ and is given the green light despite production previously being holted on the very visceral looking title.
“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,” commented Hassan Sadiq, group chairman of UTV Ignition.
“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.”
The London Executive Producer Shaun Gwilliam will head the team. The Design Director Julian Glover added: “We 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, Little BigPlanet, and Heavenly Sword. We are extremely excited to fast-track development of Project Kane.”
Project Kane is tentively on track for release in Q4/2011, and we at Zombiegamer would highly recommend you keep an eye on this one. This should be a great project indeed, going on what we have heard and seen. And lets hold thumbs for that 2011 date to stick.
