Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg has confirmed that Milo & Kate is still in development and is merely a product not slated for release this Holiday, despite earlier reports claiming the Kinect title would never ship.
According to Greenberg, the game is definitely still coming.
“Project Milo absolutely continues in development at Lionhead Studios,” he told Kotaku. “It is just not a product we plan to bring to market this holiday. The team at Lionhead has always been a center of innovation and will continue to deliver against that charter.”
Earlier, a report from ABC TV’s Good Game quoted Greenberg as saying Molyneux’s mildly creepy virtual son would never be released.
“Milo; he’s safe and sound back in England. No… the Milo Project is something that Lionhead Studios in their labs had developed. Last year we unveiled the Project Natal technology, we showed a bunch of technology demos as part of that,” he apparently explained.
“And obviously [Milo] is a technology demo that continues to exist, but right now it’s not a game that we’re planning to bring to market.”
Molyneux told VG247 that we’ll be seeing more of Milo and his gal pal Kate next month.
Until then, there’s always Kinectimals.
Thanks, Kotaku AU.
