Red Alert 3 PS3 "on hold", EA confirms

Despite dismissing reports earlier this morning, EA has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 version of Red Alert 3 has been put on hold.

An EA spokesperson told us that, "development of the PlayStation 3 version of Red Alert 3 is on hold" and that "EA LA was focusing resources on developing for the PC and Xbox 360, for release this Autumn."

The rumours were sparked earlier this week when a walkthrough trailer for the game only listed the title as coming to Xbox 360 and PC. But EA dismissed it as "rumour and speculation" this morning.

No previous EA RTS game (Battle for Middle-Earth, C&C3) has made it beyond PC and Xbox 360.

Red Alert 3 is the first game in the sub-series since Yuri's Revenge in 2001.
