Desperados III is the long-awaited sequel to 2006’s Desperados 2: Cooper’s Revenge. The new instalment in the series is being developed by German studio Mimimi Games rather than the original developer Spellbound Entertainment, which folded in 2012.
Initially set to launch in 2019, the game has been postponed to this summer, although a firm release date has not been announced. Desperados III will be on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The Collector’s Edition box is now available for pre-order through the game’s official website.
In other PlayStation news, Sony has announced a new Play At Home initiative to reduce the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The initiative will enable players to download Journey and Unchartered: The Nathan Drake Collection for free between now and May 5, as well as establish a fund to help smaller independent game studios that have been affected by COVID-19.
