Gone But Not Forgotten 4: Even More Game Cancellations That Still Sting

Phil writes, "There's nothing worse as a gamer than following the development of a game you're so excited about, then all of a sudden the developer/publisher announces that the project has been put on hold, or worse, cancelled. Okay, maybe losing your save files to a corrupt memory card back in the day is worse, but work with me here. Anyway, the feeling of utter disappointment is immense. Like with part one, part two, and part three of this continuing series, these cancelled games that were once hyped, whether by many gamers or a select few, still manage to make those that were following them wince."

Call me salty, but I still haven't quite forgiven Capcom for their cancellation of Megaman Legends 3.
They even had a demo that they were gonna release, but then they just suddenly dropped everything.

Putzes, the lot of 'em!

That was the first game on part one. Still grinds my gears.

Probably because that was an instance they ask for consumer/fan feedback, got such in large amounts, then turned right around and canceled the game blaming fans.

True Crime Hong Kong and Silent Hills are the only games that I can think of that really had me in tears when I heard the horrific news no gamer wants to hear... cancelled.

Hercules1891096d ago

Didn't true crime hong Kong just get renamed to sleeping dogs.

ZeekQuattro1095d ago

You are correct. SquareEnix resurrected True Crime HK as Sleeping Dogs and I'm glad they did.

DragoonsScaleLegends1095d ago (Edited 1095d ago )

They did, but they also removed the actually being a cop part. In True Crime Hong Kong throughout the game you could play as a criminal or cop and arrest people but they removed the cop part in Sleeping Dogs. But there is cop dlc that gives you a feel for some of the features that were originally going to be used throughout the game.

The real Star Wars Battlefront 3

Unfortunately what arose was a cash grab polished turd of a game.

ZeekQuattro1095d ago

I still remember seeing them teasing a dark Obi-Wan story line. Ugh It was made worse as years after it was canceled someone leaked ground to space gameplay that somehow skipped Battlefront EA. Smh

Godmars2901096d ago

Actually, I pretty much forgot about them...

Alexious1096d ago

Silent Hills is easily the one that hurts the most.
