While already revealed by Kuju, Hip Interactive Europe confirms today that it will no longer publish George A. Romero's City of The Dead as as it had concerns over the quality of the development. Hip Interactive Europe confirms the continuation of its publishing and distribution businesses across Europe and confirms the upcoming releases, this Fall, of its line-up with titles such as Rugby Challenge 2006, and Garfield "Saving Arlene".
Kuju Entertainment and its court-appointed interim receiver of Hip Interactive, today announce they are working together to find alternative publishing outlets for 'George A Romero Presents: City of the Dead,' which includes features such as console online game play, excellent arcade action and full Havoc based physics. "There have already been several interested parties in the game, the team and the technology and we are hopeful that some elements of the project will continue beyond the unfortunate demise of Hip Interactive Inc." said Jonathan Newth, Managing Director of Kuju Entertainment.
Armed with an arsenal of traditional and futuristic weaponry, players must battle the living dead from dusk 'till dawn in series of abandoned locales. With split-screen co-op missions, party mode, and four-player online feature, "City of the Dead" also promises a range of multiplayer features that allow gamers to play as human or zombie.
Hip Games today announced that they have signed horror icon Tom Savini to appear in the previously unnamed City of the Dead video game. Developed by Kuju Entertainment and set in the George A. Romero universe, City of the Dead will be released on the PS2, Xbox and PC in spring 2006.
