Screenshots/documents of an early Red Steel 2 prototype have been leaked. Ubisoft Montreuil – the division which created the first game in the series – was initially in charge of the title. However, Ubisoft Paris took over the project when development ceased in October 2007 over concerns of the game’s quality. Ubisoft Paris is now working on a “new” version of Red Steel 2, which should be on the way this year.
