Warhound kenneled until 2008

Call of Juarez developer Techland delays modern-day first-person shooter to next year.

With its Wild West first-person shooter Call of Juarez soon to be unholstered, Techland unveiled one of its newest projects last January. Titled Warhound, the ambitious modern-day first-person shooter was at that time set for a late 2007 release on the PC and Xbox 360. However, the Polish developer said today that the game has been bumped back to an unspecified 2008 ship date on both platforms.

In Warhound, players assume the role of a Delta Force squaddie-turned-mercenary soldier who now works for an influential military contractor. The game offers a nonlinear, highly customizable first-person shooter experience, where players can acquire their own intelligence, choose their own weapon loadouts, and decide where and when they'll deploy. Emphasizing the mercenary gameplay, players are also responsible for maintaining their soldier's fitness level, finances, and reputation.

"deshields538 Did anyone else come in here just because the pun sounded cool?" Well it is a good pun. But with so many big titles, and so many of them being FPS's, by the end of this year, a relatively unheard title would just be lost in the mix. For whatever reason, early next year sounds like a better time to launch this new franchise. All the Christmas money and gift card spenders will have something new to buy if they launch it in January.

There are too many high profile games coming out this year anyways, so 2008 would be the way to go.

The 360 version of CoJ was really solid. This is a developer on the rise.

Well even if it was going to be on the PS3, it would only get a rental at best. I'll just skip it while I am playing Gran Turismo 5.

I hope they take as long as they need to make it a great game. I also agree the last half of this year is getting a bit crowded with game releases. For the first time in a while I'm actually going to have to choose carefully which games I buy this year, and those I will leave until next year. I could easily spend £600+ on upcoming games at this point.
