Webzen has a teaser site for Huxley: The Dystopia up, complete with a countdown timer.

“Huxley combines the unmatched Unreal Engine 3-based first-person shooting action with Webzen’s proprietary networking technology for an online gaming experience like no other. We are expecting great results from the Korean beta, leading to broad anticipation and excitement for Huxley all around the world.”

According to this, Webzen’s MMOFPS Huxley is still some way off. The Xbox 360 SKU is six months behind the PC outing, which is going to take another six months to localise from its native Korean.
The game is due out on PC in Korea in the first half of this year, apparently. We had no idea Webzen was even still working on this.
