Ride to Hell is still on the long and winding road to release, says a Deep Silver developer; the very same developer that took four years to release Dead Island with nary a peep until a trailer went viral.
And so, it may be the case with Ride to Hell: An action-adventure that immerses itself in the '60s biker culture that inspired numerous films and gross interstate bars throughout the years. Ride to Hell was never out of development, but it hasn't graced a website since 2009 (one year after its initial announcement). With four years out of the spotlight and Deep Silver focusing on other projects, we assumed the game became vaporware.
This recent revelation came hot on the heels of LinkedIn profiles listing recent work and a listed Amazon release date of Dec. 31 for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Assuming Deep Silver don't put the breaks on the project again -- say, in favor of the recently aquired Saints Row -- chances are looking good that we'll see Ride to Hell before this console generation is over.
