The Xbox 360 and PC title had been slated for release this autumn, but Eidos has now confirmed a new release date of some time in 2007. The game stars naval recruit Henry Walker who begins his career as a gunner at Pearl Harbor - the starting point of an amazing career in the US Pacific Fleet in 1942.

The action takes place in the air, at sea and underwater, with players taking direct control over dozens of warships, aircraft and submarines.

"Battlestations: Midway offers players a refreshingly new and exciting gaming experience, whilst maintaining an incredible level of detail which recreates the intensity and atmosphere of the Pacific War. The ability to jump from a raging dogfight to the deck of a destroyer, with the crew frantically running about around you on deck, to the silence of a prowling submarine provides a unique and at times breathtaking experience." said Brand Manager, Matt Russell.

The game will also feature a strong online element, with up to 16 players battling it out over Xbox Live. With so many anticipated titles expected to arrive on the Xbox 360 later this year, it's perhaps a good thing that Battlestations: Midway has been pushed back into 2007.

We'll be sure to bring you more information on the game's release when we get it.
