Takedown rechristened as Takedown: Red Sabre, will be published by 505 Games

Takedown, a squad-based tactical shooter from Halo Reach lead designer Christian Allen's Serellan development studio, will now be known as Takedown: Red Sabre and published by 505 Games, according to a press release from 505 Games.

Serellan successfully completed a Kickstarter campaign last April, where it described Takedown as "the spiritual successor to the original Rainbow Six and SWAT 4." Allen was formerly the creative director of Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon franchise, and the team includes veterans of Red Storm Entertainment, Monolith, Surreal and Microsoft, according to an FAQ on the game's official website.

"We are extremely pleased to be able to let our Kickstarter community know that their early faith in the Takedown dream will be rewarded with a global campaign from a committed partner who consistently launches successful global campaigns from IL-2: Sturmovik to Sniper Elite V2," said Allen.

Takedown: Red Sabre is scheduled for release on Windows PC (where it will offer a first-person perspective), PlayStation 3 (third-person) and Xbox 360 (perspective yet to be determined) in 2013.
