Top 10 Cancelled Games

Game development can be a touchy thing. With budgets, deadlines, and legal mumbo-jumbo to consider, there are a lot of games with immense promise that end up disappearing before they ever see the light of day. Here are ten of the most exciting projects that got cancelled before we ever got to play them. (Culture, GameCube, Mega Man Legends 3, PC, PS3, Star Wars: Battlefront III, Xbox 360)

I absolutely agree that BC was one of the most "promising" canceled games. It was almost hard to imagine a game with that level of scale coupled with some of the most striking visuals we had seen from that console generation.

There were a couple murmurs floating around about bringing BC to the Xbox360, but that was all we heard <sigh>.

I have to say, it's kind of hard to make a "Top Ten" list of games that were never finished or played.

Hopefully since the brand has been taken over by Disney there might be a change of direction and Battlefront might become a reality! I have absolutley nothing to back this up but here's hoping!

I would loved to see Harker released that game looked bad ass. I still look forward for a Black 2 and killer instinct3.

Sonic Xtreme. The only 3d Sonic that looked like it would get 3d done right.

Sadness never even made it into game form. It was a barely more than a concept that was going nowhere and went nowhere.

Propeller Arena for the Dreamcast. Canceled after the 9/11 attacks because of dogfights in city and skyscraper settings. I really wanted to play that one to revisit the blast I had playing Wing War in the Arcades.

Apparently there is an ISO of the complete or nearly complete Propeller Arena floating around.
Dark_Overlord  +   600d ago
There's an ISO of both the completed PAL and NTSC versions floating round (Thats if you know where to look ;) )

Hopefully Starcraft: Ghost is revived some day. Made by a good developer, that is.

I played it, and it was not bad, just generic. I see why it got cancelled. Back then Blizz had much higher expectations. Today activision would probably shit that game out for extra profit.

i found this site that has lists and info on tons of cancelled games. im pretty sure that i saw a Cops game on there that actually sounded awsome. its unseen64.net

In the #1 spot on this list.
Riderz1337  +   600d ago
Eight Days looked so promising. I have no clue why the would cancel that game. It looked epic.
This is a waste of time. Best cancelled? ok..

I'd take Shenmue 3 over all the games in that list.
Conzul  +   600d ago
