Prototype Ships on June 9

Prototype, Activision's open-world action game, will ship on June 5 in Europe and June 9 in North America, the publisher confirmed this morning.

Activision also says that they've updated the game's official website to include the first half of Prototype's intro cinematic, though as of this morning I couldn't seem to find it there.

In Prototype you take on the role of Alex Mercer, a shape-shifting mutant hunting for his lost memories. The game is expected to be rated M when it hits the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

Check back in a few hours for our preview of the game.
