Velvet Assassin is still on course for release in 2008 despite reports to the contrary, publisher Gamecock has told

Recent reports had suggested that the upcoming stealth-based PC and Xbox 360 World War II game had slipped from October 2008 to early 2009.

However, when contacted for clarification by this morning, a representative from GameCock told us that the game's release date was "inconclusive" and that "as far as I'm aware it is still this year".

We'll have more for you on Velvet Assassin's release date as soon as we get it. For more on Velvet Assassin, including Neon's first-look preview, head over to our game page.
