Prototype, the Sierra published sandbox-style action game that is in development at Radical Entertainment is no longer set to be released in 2008, and has now been moved to a unspecified date in 2009.

Sierra Entertainment and Radical Entertainment have made the decision to shift Prototype to launch in 2009,” comments a representative of Sierra. “Since its announcement, Prototype has been regarded by many as groundbreaking and taking the open-world genre in new directions, and in the simplest explanation possible, we need more time to deliver the game the team initially set out to create.

After recent releases of media many compared the game to the likes of Crackdown, but Radical boast it will contain many more options that that game, with 750 “unique combinations” of powers available to the player. The game will also apparently boast multiple ways for players to complete objectives in the game. Radical also recently commented that the game was highly influenced by South Korean film OldBoy.
