I really wanted to play this game..

What a shame. This was turing out to look like a pretty great Pirates game.

Im sadder than Keanu Reeves atm. Im so peeved. My most highly anticipated game, now canned. Seriously, what will it take for at least ONE developer to make a Pirates RPG, instead of boring shooters?

I seriously hope another developer picks up the game and finishes it off, maybe Bioware or Rockstar.

This sucks. I was really looking forward to it..it looked great! There are so many promising games that are not the usual AAA fodder that are being canned these days. I'm soooo sick of the modern warfare shooters and typical fantasy RPGs. This looked like a good action/RPG type game and who doesn't like pirates?

And they decide to keep Tron instead...really???

I hope this rumor is false. I thought the game looked & sounded cool. So I hope this turns out not true.

Well this has been done before they hire a lot of people to work on certain parts of the game then once the game get closer to completion they lay off the people they don't need. Some places have 25 member teams then get to 100 and lay off people once they are done with the job.

The game was showing at E3 (albeit video only) and looked pretty good shame if this is true.
