Rumor: 100 Bullets coming in early 2009 [update]


Poor 100 Bullets. While the DC/Vertigo comic book series continues to impress, the video game adaptation of the dark, morally ambiguous tale seems to be shooting blanks. First, it was in development at Acclaim until the company exploded, blowing chunks of Vexx and Shadowman throughout its Glen Cove, NY offices. Then D3 announced that it had picked the license up in 2006 before going dark for nearly two years. Now, Gamervision reports that a Gamestop insider has revealed that the game has been tentatively slated for release on PS3 and 360 in February of 2009.

Gamervision was previously the first to break the news on Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, so we're inclined to at least count this as an encouraging sign of life for the long-suffering series. But if the video game version of 100 Bullets is still in limbo a few months from now, we'd like to humbly suggest a simple solution: Agent Graves vs. Sub-Zero. 'Nuff said.

Update: A spokesperson for D3 contacted us to say "we are working on the game from the ground up but we do not have any more details than that." So, for what that's worth, there you go.
