1 Cancelled Games - share your pain! on Wed Feb 11, 2015 6:08 am

Ok, so I wanted to ask you all whether any of you have found yourself at any time keenly anticipating the launch of a game only to see it get cancelled? I remember being super-pumped for the 3rd instalment of Fear Effect back in the day, but Eidos ended up pulling the plug on what was to be called Fear Effect Inferno late 2003. Gutted doesn't begin to explain how I felt!

So cancelled games - share your pain.

StarCraft: Ghost by far and away. As a StarCraft fan and with FPS being one of my favorite genres, I was looking forward to this game so much. The trailer looked amazing, too.

Another one would be Star Wars 1313. That one actually looked legitimately cool and I was psyched to see a new side of Coruscant. Couldn't care less if the gameplay looked like a clone of Uncharted's or not - I just wanted to play it.

Not a big one but worthy of sharing; Darksiders 3 and onwards.

Also Kingdoms of Amalur 2.

If I ever see Curt Shilling, in person, I want to console him, and tell him Amular deserved better.

I've only played a demo, but I've heard enough about it to come to the conclusion it wasn't a bad game.

@ Theodoricos

Star Wars 1313 looked every bit the grounded Star Wars game I've been longing to play for the longest time now. Such a shame!

@ Arch

I have the vague recollection reading that Nordic Games had every intention of making another Darksiders game. Though I didn't take to the first two, I'll keep my fingers crossed for those who did!

KOTOR 3, For obvious reasons. I do hope if they do make it that they keep the recent Bioware nonsense out of it, ME3 and DA:I didn't feel right at all.

I have a few.

X-Women: The Sinister Virus (Sega Genesis) I'm a huge X-Men mark and X-Men is a series that females can get into fairly easy since it has a romantic aspect/so many characters so a game devoted to them would've been cool during that time.

Perfect Dark Zero (GameCube) This game came out exclusively later on the X-Box 360 since Microsoft purchased Rare, but being a PS/NES console guy along with loving the Rare FPS games from the N64 I would've taken it for the GC like a hand-to-glove.

Megaman Universe (PlayStation 3/X-Box 360) Probably the biggest one for me. Epic 80's like teaser trailer and you could create your own megaman AND level creator!...so sad.

Star Wars 1313 (PlayStation 4/XBone/PC) Obviously like many Disney hurt us with this one.

Legend of Dragoon 2:(

Star Wars 1313 looked really promising too. If we are talking likely cancelled but not officially then The Last Guardian hits the hardest. Both Ico and SotC are in my top ten.

There was an interesting looking PSP RPG called Ushiro that was going to come out around 2008-2009 that I was pretty bummed to see get cancelled. It was made by Level 5 the people who did Dragon Quest 8, Rogue Galaxy and Dark Cloud 1-2 so I was pretty pumped for it. Oh well maybe someday.

Prey 2

I guess we can't have a non-white guy with a little bit of stubble in our mainstream games.

I was a huge fan of The Getaway 1 and 2, so I was especially gutted when The Getaway 3 just seemed abruptly shelved.

That would be Project Offset(working title) being developed by Offset Software until Intel bought them in 2008 and cancelled the game in 2010.

So many interesting, abandoned projects over the years. I have an old GameInformer mag with a cover-story on Command & Conquer Tiberium. A tactical squad based FPS that was worked on for years, and consequently canned. My honorable mentions' would have to be StarCraft Ghost, and the multitude of Resident Evil games that were cancelled.RE1.5, RE1(gbc), The game they were going to make featuring Hunk, showing his journey through Raccoon City(assets for which were later used for RE Nemesis) Crazy, how many Resident Evil games Capcom cancelled more than half way through developement.

Kingdoms of Amalur sequel. Arc the Lad 5, End of Darkness was crap so it doesn't count. Sakura Taisen Games coming to the states. Remake of FF7, someone had to go ahead and get it out of the way. Jade Empire 2. Darksiders 3. [insert JRPG name] of many franchises that either has gone 10+ years with out anything to show or a series never brought over. I could go on but that would take up pages of space.

Commander Keen: Universe is Toast. Tease at the end of Goodbye Galaxy. A fan has made a mod-trilogy but it would've been nice to see a official ending. Plus the Grand Intellect would've been in it and that guy is evil.

One of the most painful moments to my psyche throughout my entire life was when Capcom cancelled Megaman Legends 3....I hold the first two Legends games as some of my favorite games of all time. The only games I have ever played that honestly made me feel like I was in that game world and setting were the Metal Gear Solid series, Final Fantasy 12, Fallout 3, and the two Megaman Legends games....I LOVE Megaman Legends 1 and 2. The cancellation of Megaman Legends 3 is a scar that I will always have... Sad
