Warhawk dev talks PlayStation project

Starhawk reveal incoming?

Warhawk developer Lightbox Interactive has come out of the woodwork to tease its mysterious PlayStation platforms project – a game rumoured to be called Starhawk.

President Dylan Jobe took to Twitter to promise that the wait for the game's reveal will be worth it.

"Last couple weeks have been spent cranking on builds for Sony," he said. "Lots of good play-tests and game improvements.

"Keeping the new game under wraps for this long is tough, and very hard on our fans. But will be worth it all in the end!!

"Fans deserve real game footage and not a BS pre-rendered trailer. That's tricky 'cause pre-rendered trailers are much 'safer' to do.

"But all the investment and time in the game itself is ultimately the right direction. For the product *and* for the fans!"

Lightbox, formed in 2009 by former Incognito staffers, signed a multi-year, multi-game deal with Sony Computer Entertainment America to develop for PlayStation platforms.

In April 2009 Sony America trademarked the name "Starhawk", adding weight to rumours that Jobe was taking the series into space. Could it also head towards the Next Generation Portable?
