Tomonobu Itagaki, head of Valhalla Studios has confirmed through Famitsu that Devil’s Third is still in development.
“It’s going along really well,” he said. “We’re discussing things with publishers; we’re continuing to expand on and deepen the gameplay. That’s about the level we’re at.”
Devil’s Third was announced way back in June 2010 with THQ as the publisher. It’s been almost four years and one has to wonder what’s taking so much time?
Itagaki responded to that query by saying, “That’s because we haven’t released any information. It’s like we’re continuing to go along under the surface, waiting for the right timing to launch our missiles. Besides, if we revealed where we were hiding under the surface, it wouldn’t be much of a war, would it?
“The game itself is pretty well along in development. I’m building upon the context I’ve created up to now to provide gameplay that will really surprise people. I’m not sure there’s really a game like this on consoles, and I’d like fans to know that I’m definitely building this up Itagaki-style.”
If you were hoping to see the game in action at E3 next month then you’re fresh out of luck. Itagaki confirmed that the game will not make it to the show-floor and will be revealed when the time is right.
