Bethesda gets Wet - Retail Radar

Amazon, GameFly, CD Universe all list Fallout firm as the new publisher for abandoned Sierra action game.



One of the last remaining orphans of the Activision-Vivendi merger may have finally found a home. Product pages for Wet on GameFly, CD Universe, and Amazon (under the Frequently Bought Together section) are currently listing Fallout 3 publisher Bethesda Softworks as the game's manufacturer.

While the three retailers agree on a publisher, they are less convinced of the game's release date. Amazon has the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions of Wet arriving on August 31, while CD Universe projects a September 16 launch. GameFly expects both versions of the game to be a little slower on their way to shelves, with a September 30 release listed.

Developed by Montreal, Canada-based A2M, Wet was originally announced for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 back in 2007. The action game follows the tale of a young, lethal mercenary named Rubi as she sets out on a quest for revenge and wealth after having been wronged by a mysterious man who hired her. Described as "Kill Bill meets Tomb Raider meets Prince of Persia" in GameSpot's first look, Wet features over-the-top third-person shooter action that combines acrobatic movements with fast-paced shoot-outs and sword fights.

As of press time, a Bethesda Softworks representative had not returned GameSpot's request for comment.

Please note that while retailer listings frequently jump the gun on publishers' product announcements, they should not be taken as final confirmation of a game's existence, nor should the absence of a listing be considered as proof that a game isn't coming to a given platform.
