PS Gang takes a look at the top promising video games we wanted to play but were ultimately cancelled. Seriously, these cancelled games bum us out as we'll never get to play them.
When Eight Days first revealed I was like oh shit, those graphics, now im lookin Sat it now im like heh graphics are terrible. .I really hope this game find its way on PS4.
@PSNews I hope you realize what they showed back then it was probably Alpha build. If you look back now it looks meh but that vid is from 2006. I think it holds up ok for what they were trying to accomplish. Even the destruction physics still look great. Though the biggest drawback of the trailer is it looks on rails. Half of what was happening were set ups or lead ins to the next scenario. Ultimately, I hope it gets released on PS4.
Still, if it were made by today's specs, something like Eight Days would be incredible. In fact, what's suggested in its target trailers are things which don't have comparable current examples. Not good ones anyway.
it was kind of like opposite for me. when i saw the reveal ii thought it just looked kinda wierd. everything just looked to shiny. then i saw the gameplay that wa shown after the game was cancelled and thought, why couldnt they release this game? what happened. i mean the animations looked comparable to uncharted. go youtube the released footage for actual gameplay. looked quite cool.
Eight days wasn't very far into development. It wasn't much more than an interesting trailer and some cover mechanics. There's really no reason to keep hoping for it.
I agree, i would rather have the cancelled "The Getaway" game sony cancelled while back. And the New legacy of kain game that was cancelled shouldv'e been on the list, we instead get that crap nosgoth game instead.
When I saw; Star Wars 1313, 8Days and Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned, I was hyped. Sadly, they all never came out. I think I was more disappointed with Star Wars, because that game looked like a beast.
the getaway 3
Lionhead's B.C. Wanted this more than Fable. I wish this game could of seem the light of day.
Pretty sure B.C. was WAY ahead of its time. Fable can suck it. Molyneaux needs to think about coming back to this game. Such an amazing premise.
I think there are a couple of games like it for early access and others trying to get greenlit on Steam...whether any of them are any good or if the developers will ever actually finish them, IDK.
Would like that and the new Legacy of Kain game that SE cancelled should be on the list. and Fear Effect 3
technically it's been 'put on hold' w/e that means :P
After how Elder Scrolls Online turned out I dunno how I feel about Fall Out Online.
If they make it need a payed subscription.....
ESO is awesome and has a great community sooooo Fallout online would be great too.
Try Fallen Earth. Post-apocalyptic MMO. Probably the best one out there.
eyeidentify dirty harry Indiana jones beyond good evil 2
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is currently in development supposedly.
Agents should have be on that list
Agent was never cancelled so it wouldnt make sense to be on this list ;) "In July 2013, Rockstar's parent company, Take-Two Interactive, renewed its trademarks of the "Agent" brand." It aint dead until they say it's dead :)
That reminds me of another game sony cancelled while back that looked cool, called the Agency.
lmao yeah sony is king on empty promisses.
you know sony has close to 20 studios, so theyre not DESPERATE for 3rd party exclusives, sony should of kept the getaway instead of dragging on AGENT,
I wanted Star Wars 1313 soooo bad.
Don't worry, there are still chances it's being remade by Visceral Games.
Doesn't a game have to be made once, to be remade?
No, it just has to have gotten to the "making of" procedure. I think amy hennig did say "my new game plays lile uncharted," it has to be star wars 1313
Bang on, once again.
B.C. I remember reading about it helllla long ago in magazines. Was so hyped for that
https://www.youtube.com/wat... I think it still looks fun to this day. BRING IT BACK!
Megaman Legends 3 :'(
This times a million.
Nice redundant title :P I wonder where Ubisoft's testicles ended up, if they still had them they would man up and bring us Beyond Good and Evil 2.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 got new screenshots revealed right before E3 this year.
StarCraft: Ghost This game should get made now, a lot of what they wanted to accomplish with this game could actually be done on the new gen of consoles.
Yes. First game that came to mind when I saw this article. Also Lilly Bergamo!!!
It's so sad Lily Bergamo got turned into Let It Die, that game had such an appealing art style and now... Well it still looks cool but I would have preferred Lily to get released instead.
I really wish they somehow make Star Wars 1313 again :[
I really wanted a new Streets Of Rage game.
i was looking at that too, i would have loved a remake of streets of rage or new one in ps3/ps4 graphics
Me too! I seriously don't understand why Sega can't hire Vanillaware or Arc System Works to do a remake or sequel for Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, or Altered Beast :( Both Vanillaware and Arc Sys had great track records for 2D games. Arc Sys did a great job on Contra (Hard corps Uprising) and Vanillaware with Dragon's Crown, a game that pays a great tribute for Golden Axe. Beside, i'm sure making 2D games like Dragon's Crown or Hard corp Uprising doesn't need a lot of money compare to that crappy Colonial Marines :/
List needs some Timesplitters, before Free Radical closed doors and got bought out by CryTek they were working on a new Timesplitters game.
The Agency, an MMO like that I would dump so much time into.
Hell yeah I was looking forward to The Agency for years. lol Bastids. It would be awesome if it was brought back for PS4.
I needed to play We Are The Mods
Star Wars 1313 looked so good. I'm happy were getting Battlefront 3 but still shouldn't of been cancelled.
disaster report looked cool, it was shame that they had to cancel the game. i mean it made lots of sense, but still sad that i didnt get to play it. eight days was also quite interesting. i just hope that they can maybe make these games for this gen.
original Xbox game called B.C. crime this game was cancelled and has never been revisited. I want this game so bad!!!!
Was interested in Huxley never made it though.
Lilly Bergamo had an awesome reveal trailer at E3 2013 then was scrapped for the generic looking Let it Die. Very dissapointing.
Disaster Report 4 was all but finished and they cancelled it? I can understand the reasons but it must have been a difficult decision to make.
anyone remember project offset? that game looked amazing.
True Fantasy Live Online...
There are some nice looking games there. The one that still brings sad anger to me is that Donkey Kong Racing for the Gamecube ended up nothing but a beautiful tech demo. http://www.nintendolife.com...
what was that PS3 game with the giant lion like creature that was supposed to be the successor of ICO but never was released? the last guardian.
I remember looking forward for Coded Arms Assault on PS3 that looked pretty impressive at the time. http://youtu.be/QkARWnfWrTI edit: also dirty harry and indiana jones games were also supposed to be made for PS3/X360
ESPN 2k6 #1 for me
I was looking forward to Cry On on the XBox 360 till it got cancel
unless nintendo revive it
What about 1. Demonic https://www.youtube.com/wat... 2. Metronome https://www.youtube.com/wat...
They didn't have Fear & Respect included! I'm still waiting on that lol. John Singleton and Snoop Dogg game
Project offset. I cri evertim ;_; Tech demos still look phenomenal.
