Core Slams XboxAfter Igns post of what they believed to be the retail list of Xbox titles, spokespersons from Core spoke out. The list claimed that Project Eden, Core’s team based futuristic adventure, and helicopter shooter Thunderhawk: Operation Phoenix are both scheduled for Xbox launch. How so untrue.
"We have nothing confirmed for Xbox at the moment, and I really have no idea where this came from," ranted a spokesperson for the company. "I was in publishing meetings yesterday and there was no mention of Xbox. Even Race Nation [previously confirmed for the Microsoft console] is now unconfirmed."
Aside from the now platform wandering Race Nation, the only other title Core is supposedly developing for Xbox is Next Generation Tomb Raider. Casting even further doubt on the report’s claims, Thunderhawk is listed by the site as launching on October 16: three weeks before the release of Xbox itself in the US on November 8. Madden NFL 2002 and NASCAR Thunder 2002 are also listed as October releases.
Also listed are Commandos 2, Blood Omen 2 and Hitman 2
from Eidos. "We’ve heard nothing about Commandos and
Hitman going to Xbox, but it might happen in the future," said
an Eidos spokesperson. Blood Omen 2 is a cert: Eidos
showed the game on Xbox behind closed doors at E3.
