WarDevil news coming Q1 2009

WarDevil was one of the first HD-gen titles to ever be showcased. A few years later and the title seems to be headed nowhere. Out of concern I contacted Digi-Guys to see what was hapening with the title due to the rumours of it being cancelled; when the next set of news would be displayed to the public; and when footage of an in-game HUD would be shown.
The response, as of the 31 December 2008:

WarDevil is still in production and on schedule :)
We're hoping to show something in Q1 next year - also, remember that not all games have traditional HUD's ;)
Thanks for your interest!
The WarDevil Team

So it seems that Playstation 3 owners no longer have to worry about the cancellation of an intriguing new IP. If this still has a 2009 release then 2009 only gets better for Sony fans but I think a solid early 2010 release could give Sony some momentum after an exclusive-laden year in 2009, and allows Digi-Guys new IP to not get lost among such titles as God of War 3, InFamous and Ratchet and Clank.

nice update on the game. Im still unsure if this film will turn out good, but I hope it does. I just hope it doesnt get caught in the wave of other hits

It's only intriguing because it's been in production for 5 years with nothing to show. apart from a couple of cg prerendered trailers.

I know someone who will be working on WarDevil in a few weeks, so it is definitely still in the pipeline. Considering it is now a PS3 exclusive, it will be interesting to see what they can squeeze out of the old box. Since Killzone, Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 have shown, graphically, that you can obtain some amazing results, let's hope the War Devil team get some Sony assistance so they can push the hardware even further.
