Midway also confirmed to us this afternoon that Blacksite: Area 51 will launch on PC and 360 in November.

However, it will definitely not be joined by the PS3 version, which looks like it might not show up until next year.

The news follows fall-out from the financial report at the beginning of October that said the game had been delayed until 2008.

But unfortunately Midway remained coy over revelations that the promised online co-operative play had been dropped from the final game, after IGN unearthed its absence in a recent hands-on play test.

Confirmation should be with us soon, hopefully.
