Massive Entertainment had previously revealed that an Xbox 360 version of their well-received RTS World in Conflict was in the works; today it was officially announced that the game is now due on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
"World in Conflict was one of the best games on any platform in 2007 and its innovative action-focused gameplay makes it a perfect fit for the transition to consoles,” said Martin Tremblay, president of worldwide studios, Sierra Entertainment. “World in Conflict is being reinvented for Xbox 360 and the PLAYSTATION 3 system, with innovative features and new single player and multiplayer content created for the console audience. World in Conflict on consoles will be an amazing extension of an already great gaming franchise.”
