Red Alert 3 still coming to PS3, but not this year

It seems the folks at EA have slapped on some shades and a gratuitous amount of SPF 15+ lotion in an attempt to brave the "exotic and tough" development climate of the PlayStation 3. Red Alert 3 producer David Silverman told VideoGamer that the alternate history, real-time strategy romp is back in development for Sony's system, after having been placed on hold in July.

Silverman assures that there are "definitely people working" on it (sea otters just weren't getting the job done) and that the PS3 version would benefit from the "the high-defness of Blu-Ray." Though his other comments seemed to imply a release as soon as December, EA confirmed to Eurogamer that there "are no plans for a PS3 release of Red Alert 3 anytime before Christmas." As for when exactly armchair generals can join Tim Curry, J.K. Simmons and the gang ... time will tell. Sooner or later, time will tell.
