Midway Developing ‘Blacksite: Area 51’ For Next-Gen Consoles

Midway today announced the first-person shooter ‘Blacksite: Area 51’ is currently in development at their Austin Studios for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the PC. No target window was given for release, making us think this one will see store shelves in 2008, at the earliest.

“BlackSite: Area 51 gives players the opportunity to experience next-generation, first person shooter action in one of the world’s most intriguing and mysterious environments,” said Denise Fulton, studio head, Midway Studios – Austin. “Gamers will be instantly immersed in the game’s seamless storyline, set in the desert and small towns surrounding Area 51 that feature highly detailed environments that transform themselves into awesome battlefields. Without question, BlackSite: Area 51 will raise the bar in the next generation FPS genre with its stunning visuals, life-like squad interactions and its multitude of online multiplayer modes.”

We’ll have more on ‘Blacksite: Area 51’ including the first screenshots as they become available.
