Infinity Blade III Already Underway According To Game Tester's LinkedIn Profile
Infinity Blade III is likely to soon hack and slash its way toward seeing the light of day. That is, if the LinkedIn profile of a certain QA tester at Chair Entertainment and Epic Games is anything to go by. As discovered by Kotaku, the LinkedIn profile of North Carolina-based Michael Lochrane hints at the release of the yet-to-be-announced game. Lochrane is a QA tester at Chair and Epic, the co-developers of the popular Infinity Blade series of action RPGs, which so far officially includes the original Infinity Blade and Infinity Blade II. In his LinkedIn profile, Lochrane writes that he has tested a number of games, including "Infinity Blade 3 for the iPhone." Of course, the development, at one time or other, of Infinity Blade III should come as no surprise given the huge success of the first two Infinity Blade titles. That it's already in development, though, is noteworthy in that no official announcement has been made about it. What has been announced — and ultimately canceled — is Infinity Blade: Dungeons, the supposed prologue to the Infinity Blade universe. Introduced during Apple’s press event for “the new iPad” in March last year, Infinity Blade: Dungeons was canceled when Impossible Studios, the team in charge of its development, was shut down last February. In officially announcing the cancelation of Infinity Blade: Dungeons, Chair cofounder and creative director Donald Mustard assured fans that the Infinity Blade franchise would continue to expand with "more games, more books, maybe even other products." Apparently, these already include Infinity Blade III.
