In the past, a Section 8 was a military discharge for psychiatric reasons. In the future, Section 8 will be a sci-fi first-person shooter from Texas-based Timegate Studios, the developer announced today.

While Timegate is known for its work on real-time strategy games like 2004's Axis & Allies and the Kohan series, it has some experience with first-person shooters as well, having developed the F.E.A.R. Extraction Point expansion for Sierra's supernatural PC shooter. Helping bring Section 8 to store shelves will be the recently established Gamecock Media Group, the publisher behind forthcoming projects from independent developers like Wideload Games, Crackpot Entertainment, Auran, and more.

Details of Section 8 (including its story and the reason for its title) are being kept quiet for now, but the game has been assigned a scheduled release date sometime in 2009. According to Timegate, the "next-gen" shooter is currently scheduled for multiple platforms.
