Work on canned Bourne game 'Treadstone' revealed in video

Joystiq writes: A reel showing off some rough in-game footage of Treadstone is making the rounds after being found by Superannuation. If you're suffering from a mild case of video game amnesia, allow us to refresh your memory: Three years ago, Treadstone was a multiplayer-focused title set in Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne universe being developed by Radical Entertainment.

Wonder what selfcentered bastard made the decision to cann the funding for this game. This looked really promising and if the publishers had any knowledge of gaming and the shooters out there than they wouldn't ever dream of canning this project.

It's different, i mean the hostage interactions and environment interactions are topnotch and creative.

This industry just keeps screwing us over and over and over and over again, sigh, just like the MW3 announcement. Will suck monkey junk just like the other ones. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is a classic now, but all the milking of the franchise with MW2 and Blackops etc etc just made the whole franchise bland and boring imo.

We need more shooters like these, that focuses on 3person, storytelling and innovative gameplay.

It's like an Uncharted GTA only with a Splinter Cell story and really bad graphics. No wonder it got canned.

It was a work in progress, ofc its gonna look shit. What, you think it takes a few days to get Uncharted, Killzone, GOW graphics?

Some gameplay elements looked very promising, they should create an original IP surrounding these elements.

It actually looks pretty cool. Radical is doing another Prototype instead of this? Ugh.

Maybe if we are lucky, this will find it's way into a Bond game or something.

Damn I can't believe they cancelled this...I haven't seen some of those moves in a game before.

This looked quite promising...
