No Velvet Assassin for PS3, says Gamecock [updated]

Thursday, 23rd October 2008 16:01 GMT By Mike

Speaking to PSU, a Gamecock rep confirmed that the Replay Studios was not going to bring the World War II stealth action title, Velvet Assassin to PlayStation 3.

“Unfortunately there will not be a PS3 version of Velvet Assassin,” said the representative. “The reason being that Replay Studios started off as a PC development team, then branched into 360 development as the transition was ‘relatively simple’, but their engine does not support PS3.”

In case you missed it, Gamecock was acquired by Southpeak earlier this month.

Update: CVG has just posted some new screenshots.

Update 2: Video added. After the break. Thanks, Superfrog.

    We knew this already, didn’t we? By the way they’ve listed it as “PC, 360″ since they announced it. :-D

    No. The press release said “next generation consoles” actually.

    “Velvet Assassin™ is planned to release in Fall 2008 on PC and next-generation consoles.”

    PS3 “not a next-generation console” shocker! :-D

    tbh, I’m going purely off the previews in Edge. Which have always listed it specifically for those two platforms.

    It might be alright, this. Or it might not be. It looks a bit silly sometimes.

    I think you’re right though. It’s been billed as PC, 360 with no fanfare created around the lack of PS3′s name. Until now of course.

    Well, PS3 owners have Snake anyway, don’t they?
