Looks like Sony and Zipper Interactive will be starting next year of with a 256-person bang. In a post on the official Playstation Blog, Sony Computer Entertainment of America confirmed the PS3-exclusive massive online shooter will arrive on North American store shelves on January 26th. This is contrary to their announcements at this year’s E3, which seemed to set up the IP for a holiday 2009 release.
M.A.G. began as a working title (short for “Massive Action Game”) and quickly became one of the Playstation 3’s leading titles, with promises of online bouts reaching upwards of 256 players, and fast squad-based combat between three rival PMCs on expansive, city-sized maps.
