Following an apparent posting on Sony's official PS3 site earlier today, the interwebs erupted with news that jaw-dropping slash 'em-up Heavenly Sword - easily one of the most impressive games shown at the E3 expo in May 2006 - would hit stores on March 6.
When we checked, though, the date had disappeared from the game's official page, replaced only with a vague "2007." According to Sony spokesman Alex Armour, the March release date is wrong and was posted by mistake. Plans for the game's release - as well as for the release of Lair, the hotly anticipated dragon-combat sim - have yet to be decided, he said, as the games are still in production.
That's not to be taken as confirmation that Heavenly Sword absolutely won't grace the PS3 in March, of course; just that someone jumped the gun by posting an inaccurate date. As for when the game will ship, we expect Sony to make an official announcement soon, so watch this space.
