5th Cell's Hybrid delayed into 2012

Ambitious XBLA shooter needs more time.

Hybrid, an ambitious multiplayer shooter for Xbox Live Arcade from Scribblenauts developer 5th Cell, has been delayed until 2012.

First announced back in October for a 2011 release, it sees you taking part in a "persistent online World War" between two rival factions that will continue to rage even when you're offline.

5th Cell's creative director Jeremiah Slaczka told IGN that the studio needed "an additional year" to "take what [5th Cell has] learned and really drill down on our ideas to hopefully transform this game into something great."

The studio's last effort, puzzle platform sequel Super Scribblenauts, launched on DS last year, scoring 8/10 from Eurogamer's Christian Donlan.
