10 Most Anticipated Games Stuck in Development Hell

Arcade Sushi: "Game limbo is that mystical realm in the video game industry where none but the bravest and best-equipped titles escape, like these 10 Most Anticipated Games Stuck in Development Hell. It is a place where rumor and uncertainty run rampant, but hope still remains. Many titles that are stuck in this limbo are hotly anticipated, but most likely will never find a place on GameStop shelves or cozy corners in Amazon’s warehouses. But still, we must have faith that they will be published someday. Without further ado, here is a list of the 10 Most Anticipated Games Stuck in Development Hell that have been straight-up canceled are still yearning to be free." (Beyond Good & Evil 2, Final Fantasy XV, Half Life 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Well, starcraft had it worse than most, if not all of those, took 12 years of just sitting around before it got pushed out.

Battlefronts at 7, half lifes at 6, prey is pushing 7. So theres still hope. But I think A lot of them have what Starcraft Ghost had, they made some nice AAA game, then, next gen started showing up here and there, suddenly this great current gen game is looking mediocre at best, so you push it off, cancel it, whatever.

Wasn't Ghost officially cancelled? Or was it just 'shelved' indefinitely?

At least Battlefront will see a release. But just how good or buggy it will be? I hope BF4 isnt any indication.

Prey, last I heard, was seeing a total overhaul and won't resemble the bounty hunter game we originally saw.

HL3 Still has never had any Official confirmation of being in development.

FF vs13 was rebranded as FF15. So there's still hope.

Beyond Good and Evil 2, We only ever git the teaser, which surprised me, because is wasn't a sales generator for Ubisoft.

The Last Guardian. Who knows. Maybe on the PS4.

well looking at the BIG PICTURE (pun intended) and realizing what Valve has accomplished since HL2 Episode 2

We now see why HL3 was pushed to the back burner so it could be a Launch title or huge money maker for Source Engine 2 running on a SteamMachine in your living room on your 4K TV!

Beyond Good and Evil 2 was HAPPILY pushed back to make use of the power on XB1/PS4. Thank Goodness for that.

Star Wars BF3 is in PROPER HANDS so hey no complaints here.

I think Prey 2 needed more power also so XB1/PS4/PC release will arrive by 2015.

Lets be real The LAst Guardian needs the PS4's power.
