Running With Scissors has announced the development of Postal III, the sequel to some of the most controversial games ever created. The game is coming to PC and Xbox 360 and will utilise the Source engine to "deliver a new and advanced technical level of social satire and politically incorrect virtual violence."

"We started this series back in 1997," said RWS CEO Vince Desi, "and while the franchise has grown into an international computer game sensation during that time, it has always been our goal to bring it to the videogame console marketplace. For many years I've been asked by gamers around the world when Postal will appear on console. I'm so proud to be able to answer our fans' prayers."

Postal III will see the player once again taking on the role of the nameless "Postal Dude" who has stared in all previous Postal Games. You can also expect to see motion-captured performances from a variety of celebrities, including film stars and Playboy Playmates.

"In cooperation with RWS talent I believe POSTAL III will be the sickest and craziest game ever! Definitely, this is the first project of such scale and a major step forward for our company, said Andrew Belkin, Producer for Akella who are partnering with RWS to create Postal III.

Postal III is pencilled in for a 2008 release.
