Activision has narrowed down a launch date for its upcoming open world extravaganza Prototype, confirming a June 2009 release for the ambitious project.

Word comes via a press release detailing the forthcoming New York Comic Con, in which the publisher states, "Hands-on – fans get their first chance to play the highly anticipated open-world/action thriller, PROTOTYPE, planned for release in June."

Due out on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360, Prototype pits you in control of Alex Mercer, an individual who possesses the ability to consume his foes, gaining him access to their memories and experiences.

Mercer also has access to a variety of super-human abilities, including superior strength, speed, and dexterity, allowing him to out-run vehicles, run up the sides of buildings and jump extraordinarily long distances.
