Sabotage Renamed Velvet Assassin; Studio Assures Female Lead Not 'Tits Monster' or 'Ass Monster'

By Chris Faylor, Mar 03, 2008 8:30am PST Formerly known as Sabotage, Replay Studios' World War II-era stealth action title has been renamed Velvet Assassin. From here on out, it is highly unlikely that the game will be confused with Pandemic Studios' similarly themed WWII stealth effort Saboteur.

"Rather than a trite, overused, and generic working title like Sabotage, Velvet Assassin captures the heart of what we're trying to accomplish," explained creative director Sascha Jungnickel.

Based on the studio's claims that the game will hit PC and "next-gen" consoles, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions are likely when Velvet Assassin arrives this fall. For more details on the title, which was inspired by the real-life exploits of British agent and Nazi saboteur Violette Szabo, check out Chris Remo's E3 EIEIO 07 impressions.

Along with news of the new name, developer Replay and publisher Gamecock released a new behind the scenes clip, in which Jungnickel shows off some gameplay and discusses the creation of a female lead character that, in his words, is not "a tits monster or an ass monster."
