Rumor: Warhawk Expansion Pack in December (Updated)

Update: Warhawk director Dylan Jobe tells Shacknews that while he is unable to comment on the rumored expansion, Incognito remains committed to supporting the Warhawk community.

"We've already made significant updates on the server-side to help issues with stats and connectivity," noted Jobe, "and we will further update the community with additional server-side updates, as well as client-side patches."

Original Story: In addition to confirming Double Fine's oft-rumored Brütal Legend, the latest issue of Game Informer supposedly contains the first details of a forthcoming expansion pack for Incognito's PS3 multiplayer battleground.

Internet rumblings say the expansion is slated for a December release and will include a new vehicle, the dropship, which can airlift vehicles across the map and assault opposing foes with its missile launchers. No pricing information is attached to the bruits, nor is there any indication of new maps or other additions, which could possibly include new weapons and new parts for players to customize their virtual avatars.

When it was first demonstrated, Warhawk was billed as one of the titles that would validate Sony's approach to online content distribution via the PlayStation Store. However, apart from marking the service's only full-priced title and simultaneous online/retail release, Incognito's efforts have yet to produce any game-expanding downloads.

Shacknews has inquired to both Incognito and SCEA regarding the possible expansion, but has yet to receive a response.
