Atari and Gamecock have confirmed that Legendary, a first-person shooter set in a world torn apart by the beasts of myth and legend, is to be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this summer.

"This exciting and original title takes the lead in our Atari Shooter line up," said Mathias Hautefort, Executive Vice President of publishing and production, Atari. "Producing a game of this quality and scale is a major undertaking, but the highly talented team at Spark Unlimited is more than up to the job."

Spark Unlimited CEO Craig Allen notes: "Legendary is the type of game we want every gamer, regardless of system allegiance, to get the chance to play. We're taking our time to ensure optimum performance, regardless of platform."

Legendary sees players taking control of Charles Deckard, an art thief who is tricked into stealing Pandora's Box. Once the box is opened hordes of beasts, thought to be fictional, are released into the modern world and a full scale war between man and myth ensues. As the man who opened the box, Deckard is also the only person capable of saving civilization.
