Dark Void is currently scheduled for release in winter 2008.
Something is consuming out universe, a vast and ancient force almost beyond our comprehension. Millions of years ago, the minions of that power found their way to the 3rd planet of an unremarkable yellow star. Ours. The race they created came to call their masters "The Watchers." For millennia we knew them as gods and served their dark purposes, but a few humans developed extraordinary powers. They were known as the Adepts and they rose up, banishing The Watchers into a parallel universe, where they've manipulated and schemed from afar. Until now.
Scot Bayless VP Product Development commented: "We're really excited to be partnering with Airtight on this project. Collectively the team has a proven track record in delivering high quality titles and the addition of creative talent from the film, television and comic book industries plus the invaluable experience of Airtight's co-founder, Ed Fries, provides a winning combination."
President of Airtight Games, Jim Deal added: "Capcom has consistently been at the forefront of innovative game development and when the opportunity arose to work with them we jumped at the chance and are all looking forward to a successful relationship."
