There have been some brilliant games over the past few years. But what about those that didn't make it for one reason or another?
Duke Nukem Forever looked HOT yummy yum at the chick at the background.
It was so unfortunate that these games didn't make it. Especially Duke Nukem. What amazes me, is the fact that Division 9 had a publisher and everything, but still didn't release. I'm also still hoping for Faith and a. 45 to be picked up :)
It is a shame that Duke was cancelled after being in development for years
What was it? Something like 11 years in development. What a shame!
I'd add StarCraft: Ghost to that list as well.
I came to the comments section to say this, but you beat me! :)
duke nukem getting canceled is no big deal it would have most likely been a really cheesy and generic FPS
I was looking forward to Killing Day, The Getaway and Eight Days
"Dirty Harry" Freaking sweet. Dirty Harry is one of my favorite characters of all time. Not completely convinced that he would make a great videogame character, but perhaps. Perhaps Dark Knight not being made isn't that bad. It sounds like it was being held under too tight of time constraints.
What about Red Wood falls, and war devil? Those look like it had potential.
i watch the redwood falls demo on youtube and get depressed, it had such potential. the damage system in that game was awesome.
3D Realms never cans DNF. When are you guys gonna learn that. Alot of people still believe 3D Realms is dead. Its not. Duke Begins still exists. Under Gearbox/Take Two/3D Realms. Legal battle has put that game on hold I believe. It would be nice surprise if it showed up at E3.
Duke Nukem Forever - Yes!
erm what about the getaway and eight days they both had lot more potential than any game on that list. there not hold they have been cancelled you email the head developer of eight days and he will tell same thing. http://playstation.joystiq....
They're on hold, not cancelled, fortunately :)
What about Project Offset? Was it really canceled, or just delayed? That had a big potential, being a PC exclusive(if I'm not mistaken).
It's still in development. There were a few new screens released recently. Intel canceled the chip that Offset was being made to show off, but I think they will create another one.
Starcraft Ghost had huge potential.
Duke....Nuke them, it had potential on nuking us lol.
How about 8 Days and The New Getaway that were being worked on by SCEE but later ditched those projects for PS HOME and Eyepet? Let me know if I'm wrong.
I think they are on hold right now. I hope so...
I'm surprised Wardevil isn't on this list. I don't recall the game being officially canceled, however, I don't imagine it coming out. I was in the boat that it wasn't vaporware... but I guess I was wrong. It's a shame too because that game looked like it could've been awesome.
Probably the only game I anticipated that was canceled. For those of you whom don't remember B.C., it was a Lionhead Studios production about prehistoric tribes people. Oh hell, I hardly remember what it was about anymore, just read here: http://xbox.ign.com/objects... During my teen years when this was in the oven. So a lot of QQ involved when it got canned.
Surprised that Star Wars Battlefront III isn't on that list. Free Radical's version looking to be amazing. I'm still bummed it got cancelled and that was almost 2 years ago.
I really wish they hadn't cancelled it. Shenmue 3 is also missing from the list. 2 times it was semi-announced and cancelled.
Wanted to see how it will turn out, sad to see it got cancelled. Still remember when i submitted the news of its Teaser debut just after Shacknews went down :( http://n4g.com/news/94076/d...
Is none of them had potential or they wouldn`t have been cancelled.
i wanted that game dont know if sony knows what happened to that game 8 days ands getaway 3 are on hold wiki metioned it a few days ago and was going to be at e3 2010 but they took the page down
Yeah! I got a PSEye in anticipation for that!
Timesplitters 4 although not been officially cancelled yet has been put on hold for years. This was a game I was truly looking forward to because it's predecessors were almost works of art, although the first one didn't really have a storyline. I would really like to see that game made still, possibly the only game that I want to be made, besides Devil May Cry 5 =P
I was almost expecting to see War Devil....havent heard jack about that game in a long time and it did look promising from the little we were shown
Look at the pic. Biggest damn terminator ripoff ive ever seen. Seriously guys, nostalgia doesnt always make a good game.
Dead Rush stupid activision
the premise of Dead Rush seems genuinely cool, and it was at a time BEFORE Zombies oversaturated the gaming landscape like they do now. the though of a pseudo open world game where the entire population are mindless zombies, and all you have between you and freedom is a decked out car was AWESOME. of course, with Activision publishing (read: demanding the game be complete in 12 months or less), the quality wouldn't have been too hot, but who knows. i worked at Activision at the time, and i remember the Treyarch guys being really excited about it, until the Activision suits came in, didn't like the progress it was making at the time, and shut it down. i think i was at the E3 where it was first revealed. it's been a while.
As a huge zombie fan I died a little the day they announced it was canceled
god yes! i nerdgasmed reading about that game years ago. i also remember reading about one called Earth No More that sounded awesome, kind of a cross between fallout 3 and left 4 dead.
Besides Duke Nukem Forever, the only other games that NEED to be on a list like this are Fear Effect Inferno, Eight Days, Redwood Falls, B.C., the sequel to Turok (2008), and Getaway 3. Now those had potential.
i repeat on hold not canceled it wus jus recently announed
I remember seeing gameplay for Tiberium, whilst the graphics weren't anything to praise (although the game was in early development) the gameplay elements did have potential and I can imagine that some pretty hectic and intense battles would have taken place online, Co-op also sounded interesting, shame. As for Dark Knight, it only had potential through it's name, the simple fact that it was a Batman title and that it was linked to possibly the greatest superhero film of all time, maybe it's for the best, the last great superhero film based game was Spiderman 2 (Batman AA wasn't based on films)
I really do hope eight days is really on hold and not completely canceled. That game looked awesome
Eight Days and The Getaway 3. :(
