Activision has confirmed the launch date for its open-world action game Prototype 2 for April 24, 2012 at San Diego Comic-Con. Radical Entertainment is showcasing the first public game presentations of Prototype 2 at the Activision booth (#5445) at the show.
"We know our fans have been clamoring to find out when they would be able to get their hands-on Prototype 2, and the whole studio is excited that we can finally reveal the timing," said Ken Rosman, Studio Head, Radical Entertainment. "We're also thrilled to be at the point where we can show the game directly to our fans. It's always rewarding to see those first time reactions to what we've been working on for the past couple years, and we can't wait for them to see some of Sgt. James Heller's amazing new shape-shifting abilities at San Diego Comic-Con."
The sequel to Radical Entertainment's open-world action game of 2009, Prototype 2 takes the unsurpassed carnage of the original Prototype and continues the experience of becoming the ultimate shape-shifting weapon. As the game's new infected protagonist, Sgt. James Heller, players will cut a bloody swathe through the wastelands of post-viral New York Zero, building up a vast genetic arsenal of deadly, biological weapons and abilities as they hunt, kill and consume their way toward the ultimate goal - to kill Alex Mercer.
Prototype 2 is currently in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.
