Whatever happened to ... insert game name ?

Quote from: OP
Feel free to quote -reply to others if you have info. I'd like this thread to be a straight-up Q/A format, so please start side discussions in new threads (e.g. WHT: Alan Wake thread). Yeah, I know it's on it's way, but I had to pick a title that's been absent for a very long time. Duke discussions generally end with CeeKay crying in the corner, so let's just avoid that one...

Is there any game you were looking forward to the just fell off the radar?

I expect this thread is going to keep Kevin Grey pretty busy. slywink
I'll start.

Man I so wanted to play that game.  Last news was that it was placed on indefinite hold, never officially cancelled, but not likely to ever see the light of day.

Yeah, I agree with Dungeon Keeper.  A good successful developer really needs to pick this up and turn it into a AAA title.

This game's graphics would look good even today but back in 1998 they were f'n amazing. Well would have been. Greatest shame ever. I was so wanting this. Still do.

Interesting that there was a beta.  I thought the game was completely dead.  I've been searching for a successor to Planetside for years.  I guess the search continues..

apparently SEGA want to see how well AvP does for them to carry on(publishing) with this title(due end of 2010 at that point),as SEGA was having a cutcutting session a few months ago
..and there have also been lay offs at Gearbox

I couldn't think of anything that had been announced but never happened -  except a game that all I remember is that it had "Black" in the title, maybe for XB1.  Good luck!  Roll Eyes

On another thread though, Bullwinkle came through for me with this one.  I loved the original and it got many awards, but I don't recall any sequels being done (until now, apparently):

Mmm, definitely not NGB... and whatever it was never saw the light of day, so not "Black" either I suppose.  Seems like there was another word tacked on, and it was probably either an FPS or RPG.  It's been a long time since I even thought about it, so it was likely an original XB game.

I'll sleep on it, and see if that helps.   icon_smile

Okay, I'll answer for real now... since I had to look it up before I went to sleep!

Whatever happened to... "Black 9" - it was (supposed to be) an action RPG, but it was never released.  That's okay I guess, I'd probably still have it on my "to do" shelf anyway.   icon_cry

Black9 is an exciting new action/RPG that weaves intense game play through a captivating story, with streamlined RPG-style character development. In Black9, players encounter rival mercenaries, assassins, spies and soldiers as they battle through fascinating environments on Earth, the moon and Mars.

I was in the beta too. 50% of the time it would not load. The other 50% it took all day to load and then the game barely moved. And I have a high end system. I deleted it after trying for 2 weeks.

Joke's on him. I got it for free with a bunch of other swag from Gamespy way back at the game release. Not sure why though. One day a sizable box showed up out of the blue from Gamespy.

I'd be psyched for Thi4f (despite that), as well, as long as they don't change the setting, which I know they were talking about at one point.

Were there really plans for NOLF3 at some point?  If so, that's really disappointing that it never got made.  What a great series.  Of course, Monolith kind of went downhill after Tron 2.0.
