What would have happened if drug kingpin Tony Montana, aka Scarface, survived the raid on his mansion at the end of Brian De Palma's Scarface? Gamers now have a better idea of when they can find out.
On VU Games subsidiary Sierra Entertainment's Web site, listings for the current-gen versions of Scarface: The World Is Yours reveal that the game is scheduled to ship this fall. Previously, the game was only designated for a "2006 release."
Online retailers, if they are to be believed, have pegged down the release date even further. EBGames.com and GameStop.com both list the PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 editions as coming out in late September. Additional investigation shows that the next-generation of cursing and drug dealing may not be too far from that date. Best Buy's online site has a release date of October 4 for the Xbox 360 version.
However, those dates aren't official and could be changed. When asked for further comment about the game's release date, a rep from VU Games told GameSpot News that the final release date has not yet been set.
Scarface: The World Is Yours has not yet been rated by the ESRB. The current-generation versions of the game will retail for $49.99, and the Xbox 360 version will retail for $59.99. For more info, head over to GameSpot's exclusive preview.
