With enough delays to go toe to toe with Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell: Convinction, Sega and Obsidian Entertainment’s Alpha Protocol returns once again with another, reportedly final, shelf deadline in both the NTSC and PAL regions. Europe can expect the espionage-action RPG on May 28th, and those in the States can get their super-spy on come June 1st, both regions seeing simultaneously release for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

“The wait has been worth it. It is time for an RPG to go beyond fantasy and space,” said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President of Marketing for SEGA of America. “The genre needs a shot in the arm, and renowned developer Obsidian has delivered. Alpha Protocol will be the absolute best it can be, and we look forward to revealing fresh aspects of it to the community in the upcoming months.”

“Alpha Protocol offers a new take on the RPG genre giving players the chance to immerse themselves in the world of modern day espionage,” said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director of SEGA Europe. “Being the first ever RPG in this setting, Obsidian have written a truly immersive storyline with a cast of characters everyone will remember.”
