Postal 3 Dev Says Title is in 'Final Stages'

16
If you've been keeping up with the kerfuffle that is Schwarzenegger v. ESA/EMA you probably noticed a few references to Postal 2 in the court transcripts. Although it was released in 2003, the game is still referenced today for its over-the-top violence.

But that was so long ago. I mean, look at those graphics! What the industry needs is a new whipping boy. Oh, what's that video game industry? Postal 3 is still in development at Running with Scissors and Akella and will launch soon? Thanks.

Speaking with Joystiq, Vince Desi from developer Running With Scissors explained that the third game in the you're not helping "zany" franchise is nearly complete. "It's in the final stages in Moscow," he said. "I don't think it will come out this Christmas."

When last we heard about the game, Postal 3 was expected to launch in 2009 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

I don't mind the wait since there's no way the game will be half as bad as the Postal movie was. It's not like Uwe Boll is involved in any capacity, right? Oh, wait.

Nevermind. It's cool. Take your time.

    It doesn't appear you are a fan of Postal 2 or its graphics, mr. de Matos, but something about those screenshots you posted makes me want to reinstall the game.

    GOG has it and the expansion for ten bucks.

      I'm just poking fun at it. How can you not like a game that lets you pee on things. Right? Quality entertainment!

        I can do without pee, even in the DNF demo. It's the explosiony chaos as illustrated by your first linked screenshot that gets me all warm and fuzzy. Postal 2 did that well.

        if you shot at a car, it would fly into the air as it blew up!!!

      Postal 2 was fantastically fun for about an hour, which is how long it took me to get bored with pissing on old people and showing my dick to the cops.

      Having maturing a bit since then, I'm not sure Postal 3 will last as long.
