The game, which is being co-developed with Russian studio Akella, may also appear on the PS3 after its initial release. "We are seriously considering PlayStation 3," said Running With Scissors CEO Vince Desi. A publisher has not yet been announced.
Postal III marks the series' first appearance on home consoles, and utilizes a third person camera located behind the player. The franchise first appeared on PCs in 1997 as a top-down isometric shooter, and made the leap to first-person shooting in 2003 with Postal 2. The series' utterly brutal violence and irreverent humor has lead to a great deal of controversy, as well as an upcoming feature film directed by Uwe Boll.
"Postal III will be much better than a box of syphilis," cracked Running With Scissors marketing moyel Mike Jaret. Expect impressions of the game and new media assets from Shacknews in the coming days.
