What went wrong for the co-op action title?
I thought It was well known that it was canceled because they felt it was competing with too many other cover based TPSs including their own Uncharted. Wish they would've brought it back, but by now I'm sure Londin Studios isn't interested in making it anymore.
Yup. Pretty much. Sony thought it was redundant when they were downsizing to streamline the company. I wanted this game so bad. It was right up my alley. Action, action, action. Still think Ving Rhames would have been the black guy and used his likeness. Maybe Sony could also have paid Jason Statham to be the white guy. https://youtu.be/9BUN5c4ouW... Would be cool if brought back and rebooted for PS5 with all its destructive backgrounds. https://youtu.be/_rJ86NVdU_... After Blood and Truth's high octane action elements, I'd even take a full PS5 PSVR game. The car shooting from the helicopter, driving in the streets gunplay, shooting set pieces with glass and things flying around like in the gas station in the video above. That's Blood and Truth gameplay right there. Give me 8 Days VR. Lol! Wonder what Sony's VR Studio Manchester(formerly North West Studio) is doing or making? They haven't announced anything yet.
More Like 8 Years Amirite?
Considering Uncharted is kind of over and done with as a main priority maybe they should bring this game back. However I'm not sure if they should keep the heavy co-op or stick to being a pure single player game. Just seems like playing with an AI if you are by yourself might get annoying in a game like this.
What happened to PlayStation exclusive, Agent? Greatness Awais.....
It never made it past concept and rockstar shut it down. Research before mocking cos u look like a fool.
Rockstar still has the page up https://www.rockstargames.c...
Its funny that you make fun of PS4 when we literally have the better games
Still sitting on a shelf somewhere just like Scalebound and Fable Legneds I'd imagine.
Long gone.... vaporware.
This is a question for last gen Everyone knows it was canceled
The trailer was completely faked and they didn't have anything actually working according to a Eurogamer video
It's dead Jim...
Shame it never released. It looked great
the bigger question is what happen The Getaway 3 -_-
If Sony gets a team that can do the game justice it can compete with gta and saints row
The Getaway did have some good ideas back in the day but GTA steamrolled any competition.
Trailer just looked too good to be true especially as it was a last gen game likely vaporware now. Sony is sitting on a lot of top class ip's like Socom, Jak & Daxter, Syphon Filter, Resistance, The Getaway, Warhawk/Starhawk etc, Hoping in the PS5 era to not they hire more teams or studios to develop these or even spiritual successors as on next gen hardware could really deliver especially a game like Warhawk.
What happened? It was canceled years ago genius.
From PS3 launch trailer? I think they came to the conclusion it wasn't working out the way they wanted. Let it go.
I'm still waiting for Deep Down, Agent, and The Getaway 3 as well.
Agency is another one I really wanted but never happened.
I don’t remember this title but I got a better question. What happened to the reason i bought a PS4 which was for Deep Down?
The assets were used in other Sony games like uncharted
It was given the Vita treatment. Quietly pretend it doesn't exist until almost nobody brings it up anymore.
I've never even heard of this game
I really wanted to play that game, It look like it would have been great. Maybe someone will at least bring back the concept in a future game.
It was canceled
Like a lot of other games it probably was cancelled, it happens.
Ok, maybe it's just me, but why do I only see these kind of titles aimed at Sony when it comes to gamingbolt.com. It's always "what happened to this sony franchise" or "where is that Sony franchise". I've yet to see them put up a single piece like this in regard to microsoft. If' I'm wrong, please show me.
Sony has more IPs by a long shot, and some of the studios dedicated to certain IPs have taken on new projects in lieu of continuing their established and popular franchises. Sucker Punch went to work on Ghost of Tsushima - Infamous is either on hold, no further titles are planned, or they've decided to end the series. That said, the last Infamous game released in 2014 and asking "What happened to Infamous?" was premature. Guerrilla put down their popular Killzone series and went to work on HZD and in all likelihood, HZD 2 is underway and Killzone is either on hold, no future Killzone titles are planned, or they've decided to end the series. Insomniac 'seems' to have no future plans for a Resistance game and are working on Spider-Man 2. Wild is, well, out in the wild. Sony renewed their Deep Down patent but we haven't heard anything else regarding what was once a thing. I'm sure there are more examples but I can't think of any. Microsoft's studios have worked on the same franchises for years and haven't deviated course, and anything else they ever possibly had has been long forgotten. While a lot of these gamingbolt "inquiries" are silly, it's easier to make them about Sony games for the reasons I've stated.
Even though I agree with your reasoning. Most of their "articles" make no sense. For example, you mention infamous. The PS4 had two infamous games this gen. So it's not like it's been dormant for many years. Yet the go and make a "what the hell happened to infamous" video. Killzone is getting a new entry as they hired some of rainbow six siege talent almost a year ago. To be fair, you're right, Sony has way more IP so there is more to pick from for articles like these. But the point I was getting at is this site in particular (gamingbolt) goes out of their way to point out potentially dormant IP for one brand without even remotely looking at the competing brand in the same way. Where is the "what happened to Banjo Kazooie" or "what happened to Phantom Dust", etc?
I agree that these gamingbolt 'inquiry' articles are mostly downright silly and ridiculous. I knew of the games you stated - Banjoe, Phantom Dust, Conker's Bad Fur Day, etc, and I think the reason (or one of the reasons) is that these games are so ancient and irrelevant that Xbox fans or 'anyone' for that matter don't really care about them. They're not as popular as any of the older and newer PlayStation franchises, thus the specific journalist and gamingbolt can't capitalize with clicks by asking where they are. Mentioning Infamous or any other PlayStation franchise garners much more attention.
It went deep down.
and Agent, and Deep Down, and Wild..........
