Five Cancelled Titles That Were Overhauled to Become New Games

E-mpire Writes: Don’t you hate it when you begin anticipating a newly announced game then all connections to the game is somehow lost? Then after months and months of wanting to hear even just a smidget of news, you find out the game is cancelled? You become upset the title was cancelled because you really wanted to play it, but there’s just no hope of ever seeing it. Did you know that you may be playing that game right now not even consciously aware of it? Some of those infamous cancelled titles are actually overhauled into new games entirely. These are some of those games.

Marvel Super Squad Online.....What a waste...SMH

"I feel there’s some sort of strange stigma around this title. Why? In 2009, after the disputes, Gazillion Entertainment gained a 10-year contract with Marvel Comics to develop video games for the company. Their first title? Marvel: Super Hero Squad Online"

I could vomit for days after reading this.

I would have rather had Black 2 than Bodycount. By a lot.

It's too bad BC never got finished.

Canceled Title: Project: Van Buren became Fallout 3.

Yep cause FPS shooter became all the rage and Bethesda got a whiff of STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl.

I wish they would complete and release the old school fallout 3 to pay homage to Fallout 1 and 2.

I hate it when games get cancelled!

Sometimes it's for the better that they do. Though sometimes (like with eight days) it looks like a lot of potential wasted.

Did you just write whatever came into your head?

MAN! Getaway 3 would have been EPIC! it's a shame

fr0sty2129d ago

these games do cost a lot of money to make, so it's a big risk to take, but i damn sure would have bought it.

guitarded772129d ago

Is that one epic game title, or did you just fail to use punctuation and capitalization?

KendrickGLS2129d ago

True Crime Hong Kong, Voodoo Nights, and Gun Loco would have been awsome! It's a shame I won't ever get a chance to play them.

nolifeking2129d ago

Didn't someone pick up True Crime: Hong Kong?

andron6662129d ago

Square Enix picked up True Crime Hong Kong, but it will probably be renamed as Activision still hold the rights to the True Crime name...

nolifeking2129d ago


Thanks for the info. I thought the franchise was purchased so that the True Crime name would still be attached.

guitarded772129d ago

Wow, I didn't know Gun Loco got cancelled... sad. Star Wars Battlefront 3 was the saddest though.

nolifeking2128d ago


As much as I loved Battlefront, Starhawk looks to be better than whatever that may have been.

No Van Buren really blows, but I do dig Bethesda's take on the franchise.
