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. (PC, PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Marvel Super Squad Online.....What a waste...SMH
Assassin Nawabi  +   1072d ago
Agreed!

"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.

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.
guitarded77  +   1072d ago
Is that one epic game title, or did you just fail to use punctuation and capitalization?
KendrickGLS  +   1072d 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.
nolifeking  +   1072d ago
Didn't someone pick up True Crime: Hong Kong?
andron666  +   1072d 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...
nolifeking  +   1072d ago
@andron

Thanks for the info. I thought the franchise was purchased so that the True Crime name would still be attached.
guitarded77  +   1072d ago
Wow, I didn't know Gun Loco got cancelled... sad. Star Wars Battlefront 3 was the saddest though.
nolifeking  +   1072d ago
@guitarded

As much as I loved Battlefront, Starhawk looks to be better than whatever that may have been.
Johnny_Cojones  +   1072d ago
No Van Buren really blows, but I do dig Bethesda's take on the franchise.
Pikajew  +   1072d ago
Marvel is making a new MMO
marioPSUC  +   1072d ago
That B.C game sounded pretty cool
No Way  +   1072d ago
Agreed. I thought so, too. Would be cool if he picked that back up..
Preferably, after the new Kinect-ish Fable game. Need a break from Fable.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   1072d ago
I am still angry that Coded Arms Assault got cancelled. Sure it was an FPS but it was placed in a pretty fresh setting...

Never found out if it was overhauled but if it was I'm sure the future game didn't give the title the justice it deserved.

We should include final fantasy 7 remake right?
SE already shown a footage of FF7 PS3 demo last 2005, and I believe it was axed due to versus13 and FF13 development.. development cost is mind blowing
andron666  +   1072d ago
It was never in development as a remake. it was only a tech demo showing the graphical abilities of PS3. But they haven't ruled out a possible remake in the future, so fingers crossed...
jacksonmichael  +   1071d ago
I like how you said 'last 2005'... As if you thought we might think you meant BC. :)
KendrickGLS  +   1072d ago
i am cool
Nate-Dog  +   1071d ago
As far as I know, that 3DS Assassins Creed title that got canned was basically what Revelations is going to be too. Never knew about any of these games in the article though, nice job.
majiebeast  +   1071d ago
Payday the heist uses assets of the agncy so you could call it a overhaul.
nnotdead  +   1071d ago
i thought BC was announced after or was being made during Project Ego?
