VGChartz's Taneli Palola: "Unfinished games get cancelled all the time. Practically every month we hear about a game being shelved for one reason or another, be it lack of funds, disinterest from the publisher, tortured development, or any number of other reasons (hello Silent Hills). But why would someone decide to cancel a game after it has already been completed?
It may seem like a really strange thing to do, but over the years just such a thing has happened more than a handful of times. These following games were either already complete or mere weeks away from going gold when, for a variety of reasons, they were cancelled."
