D3 sees through Illusion

The two companies announce a partnership to bring a new, top-secret IP to the world.

Developer Illusion Softworks has signed a deal with publisher D3 for the exclusive worldwide publishing and distribution rights for a new game.

The title is currently under development at Illusion Softworks' Czech Republic-based studios, and will be coming to the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in autumn 2008. The title will be a new intellectual property from the company, not a continuation of any of its current series.

Other info about the game is being kept strictly under wraps, but previous titles from Illusion Softworks include Vietcong, Mafia, Hidden and Dangerous, and Flying Heroes. The company is also currently working on Enemy in Sight, a military first-person shooter.

Publisher D3 is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, and has offices in the UK, Europe, and the US.

Some of you kids need to learn to read. "The title will be a new intellectual property from the company, not a continuation of any of its current series" So no, it is not Mafia, wish as you might.

It'll be so awsome if Illusion were to churn out a sequel to Mafia. Let's just hope this new IP is someting along the lines of that.

To the ones who mentioned the H-games. You are thinking of Illusion Soft. This one is Illusion Softworks. Big difference.

Will probably be another good/average PS3/360/PC release like Stranglehold or something. Not a game like Stranglehold, it'll just be the same caliber and same quality as Stranglehold.

@ XanderKage: "Are they bringing back Mafia???? f so it would be the greates thing that happened to my gaming world.........." I second that, Mafia is imo one heck of an underrated game. I still have it installed on my PC and play it from time to time. The only thing I did not like about it was the race you had to do, other than that, great game all around. But since we are talking about a new IP, I suppose well just have to sit back and wait to see what it is.
