Default A gamer's worst nightmare - Cancelled Video Games

No one likes to see video games being cancelled.
Sure, some are for the best, they are awful or totally generic, but there are some that makes us all cry a little inside.
So, this thread is to a tribute to those video games, the ones that got the plug pulled, be it good or bad...letīs start with one of the most recent of all:

Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned
Developer: Propaganda Games
Publisher: Disney Interactive Studios

Yes, Propaganda Games is no more, Disney closed them after Tron: Evolution, it was the first developer to close doors in 2011.
It was a really stupid decision by Disney, as they donīt have a lot a great developers, the other two being Junction Point (Warren Spector) and Black Rock Studios (Pure and Split Second).
Propaganda were starting to work on Turok 2, it was cancelled or put on hold for them to being POTC and then it was cancelled for Tron: Evolution....and then they were closed, i donīt get this stupid decisions.
But back on the cancelled game



I hope that Disney reconsiders, the Pirates of the Caribbean universe is an amazing one for video games, besides, for all i know, the game was almost done.
Itīs a mix of Pirates (duh), horror, action adventure, supernatural...with a touch of saturday morning cartoons like ThunderCats and Masters of the Universe.

Quote:
The game would give players a character who has a predetermined appearance and personality, and based on their actions, the player will shape the character. Choices the player makes in the game would change the appearance and personality of the character. The game's main focus would be to allow players to choose how their character is seen in the world. This would allow some players to be more feared while some are just more respected. Exploration would take place in a mixture of land and sea. Combat would be real-time instead of turn-based and would allow the player to customize weapons. The open world would also be filled with wandering artificial intelligence and, based on the way the player interacts with the AI in the game, the world would change the game's main plot. The game would also allow players to make allegiances with nations based on the path they choose. When the game's designer, Alex Peters, was asked about sword combat he said the player will be able to "attack, parry and counter their enemies" but when asked about ship combat, he replied, "Without giving away anything at this early stage, our approach is vastly different than any other game.
Small details have been released about the plot. Though the game takes place in the universe of the film series Pirates of the Caribbean, it would take place before the events of the film series and is not connected to it in any way, featuring an original plot. However, it seems as you progress through the game you'll choose to be either a dreaded, feared pirate or a respected, legendary pirate.

Frame City Killer seemed like it was gonna be pretty promising, open world and it had sort of a Matrix feel to it, too bad it got shelved





Also, Factor 5's Superman game could have very well been the best Superman game

The only game off the top of my head that I know I'm disappointed about being canceled was a Daredevil game that was to to come out to the PS2 in 2004 before it got the boot. Looks very similar to the Spider-Man game from the PS1


For some reason I can't post the video but here's a link to the video

I think the company just went out of business, they pulled the plug on the game altogether. Check out some of the gameplay footage on youtube, it looked pretty sick

I'm jealous. I'm with you on Shenmue. Played the first one on the Dreamcast and loved it. Never got to play the second though, I don't think it got released in the states.

The Indiana Jones game broke my heart when it was cancelled for PS3. Probably one of my most anticipated game ever. Too bad there was so little info on it. Did any of you guys play "The Lost city of Atlantis" for Dos? Loved that game as a kid.

I don't think Shenmue 2 didn't release in the United States, it released in Europe and it only contained english subtitles I believe

Cancelling that Indiana Jones game was a dagger to my heart, I wanted that game so bad, that was one of the games that were utilizing the Euphoria game engine alongside Grand Theft Auto 4

Oh wow. I had completely forgotten about that game. Now I'm sad.


For me, even though it was buggy as hell, I really wanted to see the rest of that Advent Rising triology. Despite it's flaw, the story was really interesting.

Shenmue II came out for the X-Box in North America so we got it. Though on the Dreamcast yea we did not.

And I agree Shenmue III was something I wanted to see, however you never know, it could always come back. (fingers crossed)

It is kinda hard to think of games that were canceled that you would have liked to see. One would have been StarCraft Ghost. I got to play a bit of it when I went to E3 in 2003, but not much. I was hoping for StarCraft meets MGS in full but it never came to fruition and it seemed to be jumbled up so I don't know if I actually am sad about it or not.

The one that was rumored and registered by Square-Enix for a time in early 2001 was easily one that I want to see more then any of the others is Chrono Break. Which was suppose to be the third Chrono game, but nothing more ever came from it. So if it was ever being produced or not I don't know if anything was ever found about it.

The Dark Knight videogame that was supposed to coincide with the movie was a bummer, but Arkham Asylum made up for that.

Highlander got canned last year



Killing Day looked like it was gonna be pretty impressive, CANNED
