Webzen has confirmed that much-delayed massively multiplayer FPS Huxley will be released in the US in late 2008 on PC. The Xbox 360 will follow around six months later.

Huxley is a fast-paced massively multiplayer shooter set during a mutant war in a post-apocalyptic future, offering both player versus player and player versus environment missions. The Xbox 360 version will also include a single-player campaign.

It was first unveiled at E3 back in 2005 before largely disappearing off the radar. A summer 2006 release date was bandied around at one point, but so much for that.

Now the game, developed by Webzen itself, is scheduled to appear in its native South Korea in the first half of this year before undergoing a six-month localisation process. Webzen told Eurogamer there's no word on a European release so far as plans are still being finalised. In the meantime, you'll find videos of Huxley in action over on the gamepage.

Webzen is also collaborating with Dundee-based Crackdown developer Realtime Worlds on the hotly-tipped crime MMO, All Points Bulletin, and with ex-Blizzard splinter-group Red 5 Studios.
