We've heard June for Prototype before, but now it's official.

In their run down of what's happening at this week's New York Comic Con, Activision says that Prototype will be coming out in June. If you believe British retailers that would be June 27, at least in the UK.

Activision will be giving fans a chance to go hands on with the open-world action title at the show this week. They'll also have screenings of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, and chances for fans to debate their Marvel knowledge and take pictures in front of a green screen with scenes from either X-Men Origins: Wolverine or Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2.


Activision will have two panes at the show as well:

Fans of the shape-shifting phenomenon will also be able to attend a panel presentation of PROTOTYPE hosted by developer Radical Entertainment, which will include a live game demonstration, new gameplay footage, and more.
