Top 5 Most Tragic Game Cancellations

Save and Quit - "The video game industry can be a cruel mistress. Last minute delays and massive disappointments can break both the spirits of fans and the wallets of developers. Few things are quite as disheartening as a promising title being cancelled before release. Here I’ve compiled a list of five of the most tragic game cancellations in recent memory." (PC, PS3, Star Wars: Battlefront III, Xbox 360)

Before reading the article I was about to say, number one better be SWBF3, and sure enough it was

I hope timesplitters 4 is announced at E3.

Imagine if batlefront 3, timesplitters 4 and GTA 5 are announced at E3 it would be awesome!

I met two of the people working on White Council. Apparently it wasn't as cool as it sounds, a lot of quests they were designing were rejected for being too interesting, they wanted mundane things (Kill rats, collect apples)

So I can't say I'm too sad about it.

Anyone remember the fan made sequel to chrono trigger that was actually completed but never released due to a cease and desist letter fron Nintendo (I believe it was them). I'd definitely consider that a cancellation, and thus it should top the list.

I agree, it wasn't a "legit" game buy holy hell was it awesome. Nintendo should have just bought the company that was making it and let them finish.. It could have been a digital release and people would have bought it like hot cakes.

Glad to see Armada of the damned on the list, my heart broke the day they cancelled it.

Worst one for me will always be...
Fear Effect: Inferno. Apparently it was about 90% done before the whole thing was abandoned.
