According to the official European PlayStation boards, the Haze demo will be added to the European PSN next Tuesday as part of SCEE’s PlayStation Day.
They’ve given the full content up date for next week over there. PlayStation Day should be great, by the way. Roll on Tuesday.

Ubisoft’s just confirmed a four-player co-op and campaign demo for PSN release in May.
“Coming exclusively to the PlayStation Network in early May, this playable demo will give gamers a taste of not only the single-player campaign in Haze, but will also allow up to four-player, drop-in drop-out co-op play online,” the company said in the announcement.
The game ships on May 23. Read the press release after the link.

Ubisoft just confirmed that Haze will release in Europe on May 23.
The ship-date for the Free Radical shooter has been the subject of much speculation in the past few months.
Hopefully this’ll be the last we hear of the PS3 exclusive before it finally makes it out.

Ubisoft has just sent out a release schedule with a note that the May 22 release date for Haze confirmed yesterday is incorrect.
“Please note: Change to Haze release date is MAY release,” said a spokesperson. “Confirmation of the release date soon.”

Haze is now down for a May 22 release date, Ubisoft has just confirmed. The Free Radical shooter was previously tagged as “May”. It’s PS3-only. For a bit. Maybe.

Jesus fuck. This is just depressing. Ubisoft has apparently now said that Haze is only on PS3 “for now”, despite everyone involved with the game for the past three years saying it was a PS3 exclusive. We’ve sent Ubisoft a “please, please just say once and for all what’s going on with it” email.

Look, we know, OK? Free Radical’s shooter is a PlayStation 3 exclusive. Ubisoft said this again at Play.com Live this weekend, reiterating the fact it’ll never come out on Xbox 360. No one knows why but the developer and Ubisoft, and it’ll probably stay that way. Can we drop it now?

According to the promo movie below, the script for Haze is now over 1,000 pages long. That’s a world of pages. The video follows script writer Rob Yascombe as he runs around the studio with a gun interviewing people. It’s Friday, OK?

Speaking here, Derek Littlewood, project lead on Free Radical’s PS3-exclusive shooter Haze, has hinted that we can expect the company’s next project to be multi-format.
“As soon as Haze is done I’ll be throwing myself into a tricky duo of projects: ‘Having a life’ and ‘Remembering what my family look like’,” he said. “Release platforms TBD, but you can be assured they won’t have the word ‘exclusive’ anywhere near them.”
Confusion surrounding the exclusivity of Haze and subsequent speculation about the game appearing on other platforms, has been a hindrance, said Littlewood. Haze was originally announced for PS3, 360 and PC, but the latter two SKUs vanished from following press releases.
“I can appreciate the frustration that many gamers have felt about the multi-format speculation, but that’s just the thing – most of it has been speculation, not fact,” he said. “And when that results in people getting angry at the development team, I think that’s a bit unfair.”
Haze is due out in May, although no specific date’s been set as yet.

Ubisoft just confirmed that PS3 exclusive Haze will release in Europe in May. The Free Radical shooter was announced for a May release in the US yesterday.

So says this. Apparently the Free Radical shooter’s going to be given an M rating in America. We’ve had no word on a European date as yet, and is still down as “Q2″. The PS3 exclusive is set in a near-future world of… killing people. Looks fun. We’ll try to get a European date tomorrow.

Haze, the Free Radical shooter, will release on May 20 in America and May 22 in Europe, according to a bunch of retailers to be found here. Publisher Ubisoft currently has this down as a second fiscal quarter game, meaning it’ll ship between April and June this year, although there’s been no specific confirmation of date as yet.

A decent sized video of Haze co-op play here, and it’s all looking promising enough. There seem to be some fantastic particle effects going on from explosions and smoke grenades, and news that the entire campaign can be played through with four players should pique interest of many thirsting for a new, proper, buddy-buddy experience after Gears of War. Haze, from Free Radical, is slated as a April-June 2008 release from Ubisoft.

Ubisoft’s latest release schedule has put a loose release date on Free Radical’s oft-slipped shooter, Haze, promising a “Q1″ turn-out. That’s actually Ubi’s first financial quarter, so don’t wet the bed just yet. The game will ship in Europe between April and June this year.
Delays for the title were getting a little yawn-worthy, so this is good news. Haze is a PS3 exclusive, despite untold rumours to the contrary.
