THQ has revealed that Tomonobu Itagaki's Devil's Third won't be hitting shelves until calendar year 2012.
The news came in the E3 investor's call we picked up last week - where the publisher also outed Darksiders 2 (also coming 2012) and discussed Gears Of War challenger Space Marine.
Devil's Third is a third-person action title for Xbox 360 and PS3. Itagaki said his heart was "pounding with anticipation" to announce the game.
The game has been developed by the new studio of the Ninja Gaiden creator, Valhalla Knights.
