Remember Huxley? It's okay if you forgot: The MMO shooter from Korea has been in development a looong time. The PC and Xbox 360 game was originally announced in 2005. At one point, it was scheduled for a 2007 release, Then a late 2008 release. The game obviously missed the previous deadlines, and now it looks like the 360 release of the game might not happen at all.
Huxley:The Dystopia's publisher, NHN USA, told IGN that the console version has been put on hold to focus on the PC release. The company only picked up the North American rights to the PC version and would like to see a 2009 release. If the game sells well on PC, it's possible that a console version could follow afterward...but just about anything's possible.
Too bad for console gamers, though. Huxley sounds like an interesting game. Huxley: The Dystopia takes place in world loosely based on Aldous Huxley's famous pointy-headed dystopian novel Brave New World. Huxley's book is about the loss of individual identity as a by-product of social engineering, eugenics and over-reliance on technology, but Huxley the game is about shooting a lot of people in the face. If the combination of first-person-shooter, RPG elements, an MMO's persistent world and large scale PvP battles pans out, this could be as groundbreaking a game as Brave New World was a novel.
But don't take my word for it. Look at the video above!
