Yoshinori Ono revealed that Deep Down hasn't been completely given up on by CAPCOM. The game could still be made at some point.
It's not the most positive-sounding things though. "Not completely given up on" makes it sound like it could end up in development hell.
Dude. That ship has sailed. They abandoned the engine. The game is canceled. They renewed the trademark so no one else takes the IP Just in case they want to come back. Nintendo every couple of years renews Eternal Darkness TM but do nothing with it. As DD has been dead a few years. It created a lot of turmoil within Capcom. They left the project and worked on the RE Engine and DMC5 and RE2 instead.
This game looked so good, wasn’t it supposed to be a launch game? Maybe a launch game for the next gen.
End up in development hell? It went into then never came out of... I hear what you're saying, but it's just far too little too late.
"End up in development hell"? Its BEEN in development hell. They first announced this game back when they announced the PS4.
Could?! It already has, it was announced at the launch of ps4!
Hope it gets finished someday...
It'd be cool if this releases for the PS5. Announced during the beginning of the PS4 cycle only to release on PS5. Who knows but what I really want from Capcom is a Dino Crisis remake, Nemesis remake, Code Veronica remake and last but definitely not least Dragons Dogma 2! Imagine a sequel built for next gen consoles! It'd be incredible!
We got so many Dead Rising games.. Just imagine if Capcom put that same amount of energy into the Dino Crisis series!
With the same team behind the RE2 Remake.
Very good point! I only liked the original Dead Rising myself but yeah it'd be great if they'd focus their collected efforts towards the series many want.
It has certainly been forgotten though...I was (and will be again if it comes out) so hyped for this game back in the day. I literally forgot this existed till I saw this article however.
That's true, but all it would really take is a re-reveal at the PlayStation 5 Meeting in a few months with next-gen graphics and the hype train is back on track. Voilà!
It just kind of dropped off the radar without any explanation, only to be brought up once in a while when people say, "whatever happened to Deep Down?"
This game went through some dev hell, which is unfortunate since it looked really cool. The re-reveal didn't look to hot with a focus on more of an online MMO style, but I remember that first reveal with the dragon fire and all the ash and stuff flying around... We could probably hit that visual fidelity next gen. Hopefully Capcom is still working towards it.
Vaporware. Forget it.
I dont like the sound of that, first Agent and now this
I think the trademark for Agent was dropped, so yeah, dead. There's still some hope for this one, however.
There is always one nxt gen reveal game that never makes it, this gen was deep down, last gen gateway and 8days. Wonder what nxt gen reveal game won't make it?
Shame, looked epic and certainly had that souls vibe, but with its own look and pretty amazing visuals.
Maybe a Ps5 title?
It's definitely been paid no mind by Capcom for a while now.
There was never any formal announcement of the game being cancelled, so this isn't too much of a surprise.
Like RE5's gameplay and Demon Souls everything else had a baby, this looked insane when it was originally shown.. damn shame, maybe with the PS5?
Hey Nioh was kind of similar in that it was an early PS3 announced game but then ended up on PS4... so maybe PS5?
Talk about about a game being in production limbo.
It's probably over. I doubt they'll ever make this. But then again, they did make Duke Nukem.
I pretty much given up on it at this point. I'm more interested in the development history rather than the game itself. I'm really curious as to why the game is in such development hell.
Well hurry TF up!
I thought I saw an article once that said they were working on this game while also creating the engine it was being made with. What was past shown looked pretty awesome, so I hope they're still working on it. This and WILD need to still be in development!
Just let it die and focus on reviving and revitalising more dormant IP like you did with RE, DMC, MH, Mega Man.
Let it die. The game was announced even before the start of this current gen which is closing in a year.
PS5 launch release confirmed. 😉 ...I wish!
Not holding my breath. CrAPCOM has been sorely out of touch with gamers this gen. They might as well go the konami route.
After the years of retrospective where most have come to terms with Asura's Wrath not being a great game and realistic graphics being deemed less important than engaging gameplay I don't see the demand for a game like this.
Incorporate it into Dragons Dogma 2.
Deep Down - the PS exclusive fanboys hyped all the years?? Are we talking about the same game?
This was nothing but a PS4 tech demo. It’s the reason I bought a PS4 yet the game never came out. Nothing but trolls up there at Capcom
when it comes out it comes out, the hype is at 0 now
Neither has Agent via Rockstar *rolls eyes*
