Insomniac sets its sights on a May release for Fuse

Insomniac Games' cooperative shooter Fuse will be releasing on May 28 and May 31 in North America and Europe, respectively, the studio announced today. This comes after a delay earlier this year and something of a confused identity; you might remember the game best by its previous name, Overstrike.

I've struggled to feel anything other than apathy towards Fuse, though that's not necessarily a fault unique to the title so much as it is me being generally burned out on third-person shooters. Hopefully for those of you who aren't, this will be a title worth playing. It is the first real multiplatform release for Insomniac, after all.
