Sony denies WarHawk rumours

Not dead, not in trouble, etc.

Sony has denied suggestions that Incog's PlayStation 3 title WarHawk is in trouble and may be cut down, cancelled or released via the PS3 Store rather than at retail, declaring that the rumours are "false".

Yes, our old friend Internet Reports has been at it again - the difference this time being that when various sources started interpreting information supposedly leaked by a rowdy minion, the company involved actually bothered to deny it.

First there was God of War designer David Jaffe - who has close ties to the people at Incog - railing against comments made on the Gaming Age forums about spiralling costs and arguing that development is rarely smooth at the best of times, but that this certainly doesn't mean a game is dead or dying.

"Just because some disgruntled ex-worker - who thought the game should have been made HIS way - is now getting his 15 minutes by spouting off to some news source, does not mean he is bringing any meat to the table in terms of valid information," Jaffe wrote. "It may be TRUE information in terms of a game having been down a tough road, but again - that is par for the course."

Sony went one further, speaking to GameSpot: "The rumours are false. We're still in development with the same team at Incognito and we're excited to show the progress of the game to media within the next month or so. At the same time, we'll be able to confirm an updated release date, too."

So there you go. For more on WarHawk, which will make use of the PS3's tilt-sensing Sixaxis controller for its flight model, among other things, check in with our E3 and Tokyo Game Show impressions and interviews.
