Rumor: Starhawk detailed, reveal next month

Starhawk, the oft-rumored sequel to Warhawk, is real, according to SystemLink. According to their source, Sony is preparing to reveal the Lightbox-developed multiplayer title in mid-May.

Unlike Warhawk, the game will apparently only release on blu-ray. No digital release, this time around. Also unlike its predecessor, it will boast a full single-player component. Though, like Warhawk, it’ll still be a third-person shooter featuring “jeeps, APCs, tanks, and now spaceships.” It will also retain its cartoon-like visuals. Apparently, of course.

Maps are reportedly set on different planets and in outer space, featuring “small areas for ground combat.” It’s set in another universe, meaning Earth is non-existent.

Finally, it’s said to run on a brand new engine.

Stay tuned. We’ll find out the validity of these rumors next month!
