We have some rather disappointing news now for those of you that were waiting for the Hybrid video game to arrive at some point this year, as the developer 5th Cell has recently announced that the XBLA shooter’s release date has now been delayed until sometime in 2012.

According to JC Fletcher over at joystiq.com, Jeremiah Slaczka – the creative director – explained the reason for the unfortunately delay by saying that with an additional year, the company can take what they have learned and hopefully create the highest quality game possible.

The Hybrid video game – which is both created and developed by 5th Cell, the team behind games such as Drawn to Life and Scribblenauts – is a third person shooter that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world amidst a war between two factions – the Variant and the Paladin.

Gamers will conquer territories in 3 versus 3 online battles. The game – which utilizes the Source Engine – will feature rich, detailed environments and multiple customizable weapons, abilities and armor. It also includes innovative gameplay mechanics such as combat-focused movement.

You can learn more about the game over on the whatishybrid.com website. Were you hoping for the Hybrid game to be released this year?
