The Top 7… Awesome-looking games we REALLY hope aren’t cancelled

Gamesradar- "Game cancellations are a sad reality of the video game industry. There are so many moving parts - hardware, software, marketing, promotion, publishing - that some titles fall through the cracks, no matter how gargantuan and obligatory they might seem. Sometimes it happens abruptly, while other times the cancellation of a game is never truly revealed until, well, the game just doesn't come out.

That's not to say that there are no signs. Usually it's fairly obvious when a game is getting cut, and there have been a number of major games this generation that appear to be precariously hanging over a bottomless pit, despite the assurance from the developers that everything is fine. We've rounded up the games we have the worst feelings about, and we hope we're wrong about literally all of them." (Kingdom Hearts 3, PC, Prey 2, PS3, The Last Guardian, Xbox 360)

Ole FFV:XIII will you ever see the light of day? It'll be probably pushed to next-gen and given a new name not associated with FF XIII.Kinda like how The Bouncer was suppose to be a sequel to Ehergiez on ps1. Hopefully better.

Didn't know The Bouncer was supposed to be a sequel to it. I really want to play it again. I only got to play it a little bit when I was like 12.

Here is a picture of a ponce that is sniffing his gloves after fingering his bum hole , should suit the final-fantasy community down to a tee and hopefully actually be the Final Fantasy , dam false advertisers.

"And not associate with XIII"
Kind of hard for that to happen when Versus is centered around Etro and L'cie.
With that said, I don't see anything wrong with FFVersus XIII become XV even as a Fabula nova Crystallis title.

By association, I mean numerical name. Sure it will be in the same dimension as XIII. But just a different name. FF XII was in Ivalice, the same world as FF Tactics. But they didn't call it FF Tactics XII.

?? LOL! So push it to a lessor install base to make money? Dumb...just dumb. Your reason why it would is so stupid its not even funny.

It will be on PS3 or 360 too. Only because all this time could had been making a port OR they where working on other projects.

If only Assassin's Creed 3 could release quickly
Altairyalmaz  +   1215d ago
Assassin's creed 3 release date is October 30th

GTA V release date is in November or in 2013.

The last Of Us will release in 2013

Lego Lord Of The rings will release in 26th October

Versus has been confirmed not canceled, Last Guardian has been confirmed not canceled, Kingdom Hearts 3 hasn't even gone into development yet. So that's 3 out of 7, Prey 2, BG&E, HL3 are ones to actually be considered about. Did anyone actually care about brother's in arms: furious 4?

This article is kinda bad
torchic  +   1215d ago

when did Square Enix even announce Kingdom Hearts 3?

this article sucks donkey balls
r21  +   1215d ago
i dont know why but i feel like most of these titles will be happening on next gen consoles. especially KH3, seeing as we're not getting that in 2-3 years.
Honest_gamer  +   1215d ago
F you article i was really wanting to see that but make me read it over 9 frames? NO 3 pages or frames at the most 9 = fire your f'ing web designers
laxbeav  +   1215d ago
It's too much trouble for you to click the button nine times? That is special.
DragonKnight  +   1214d ago
It's not about trouble, it's about hit mongering for ad money.

I would've included Eight Days and The Getaway 3. I remember hearing somewhere that those games weren't cancelled but on hold even though they were said to be cancelled by Sony Computer Entertainment.
Honest_gamer  +   1215d ago
dam eight days looked really really good was one of the 1st games i saw for the ps3 along with "they" when i got a ps2 magazine and it had a trailer for them lol o.0 wonder what happened to "they" it looked pretty good
_-EDMIX-_  +   1215d ago
Yes, that Same Sony later said they where on hold. They actually might be gearing up for a PS3 release later next year seeing how Sony London isn't really doing anything right now. (not that i know of)

The Getaway 3 was looking oh so amazing. I don't see Sony not releasing a Getway game (even if it isn't The Getaway 3)

Even that I don't see, seeing how all the assets and such still exists for the game. They could be recycled in a Next Gen Getaway game for PS4, but its more likely PS3 just based on the installed based on being more, but whole knows.

Who else is excited to see Sony do an open world crime game using Bluray?

Square E Suck
pixelsword  +   1214d ago
I tend not to bash S-E (too much), but it would have been funnier if you would have said "Square penis".

Not by much, mind you :D

Oop that don't have edit add comment. SE suck because FFVII remake and FFXIIIv been never release game what happened like FFXIII-2 worth and very disappoint game do u agree me? If me right.... U check youtube all agreed with me I trust. I like FF 7-8-9 and more than 10 year SE over.
pixelsword  +   1214d ago
I agree that they should give the people what they want: It's not like it's any harder than putting out any other version of Final Fantasy or something, it's just a code port and some upkeep I would think.
Ben_Grimm  +   1215d ago
Versus has now surpassed hyped into legendary status that is almost equal to Duke Nuke'Em. If it ever drops it will never live up to the expectations everyone here is hoping for.

At least for most here on N4G.
_-EDMIX-_  +   1215d ago
I wouldn't say all that. From what i've seen from the game online, it looks like a mixture of Kingdom Hearts and FFX. It looks amazing. I'm sure it will be an amazing game. Just the trailers alone are just gorgeous!
SeekDev  +   1215d ago
HL3 simply isn't canceled. Valve just has the development philosophy that it's ready when it's ready.

FFversus if its ever coming

best looking game for ps3 hands down
elhebbo16  +   1214d ago
i really dont want prey 2 to be cancel. it looks promising and tbh what other game puts you in an open, futuristic, neon-lighted world as a bounty hunter catching outlaws? not to mention free-running. please bethesda dont fuck this up (or zenimax, not sure).
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1214d ago
If square enix announces the KH HD collection Ill w8 aslong as I have to for Kingdom hearts 3. VersusXIII Its TGS 2012 or I cant be sure that it will ever come out.
hellosnoooopy  +   1214d ago
I want to know where Black Mesa is... I have been waiting years for this game. Yes, I know it's free, but doesn't stop me wanting it.
