World in Conflict console canned

PS3 and 360 versions of acclaimed RTS no longer in development, Ubi confirms

Previously confirmed console versions of acclaimed RTS World in Conflict have been canned, Ubisoft has confirmed to CVG.

PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of upcoming expansion Soviet Assault - which has finally been dated on PC for this month - were originally on previous publisher Vivendi's release list.


New WiC house Ubisoft however has other plans, telling CVG that "a console version of World in Conflict is not planned for release at this time".

Ubisoft acquired developer Massive Entertainment at the end of last year.

"We are fortunate to have found in Ubisoft a publisher who shares the same values and understands our mindset. I have no doubt that our future together will offer significant mutual benefit and synergy," the developer said of the move.
