The saga of Final Fantasy XV will cut off abruptly, as Square Enix last night announced they've cancelled three of its four upcoming story DLCs. FFXV director Hajime Tabata has left the company too, planning to start his own company for his own project. So... that's about the end of that. The DLC story episode starring antagonist Ardyn is still coming, as are more of…

Limit Theory cancelled, six years after Kickstarter

Sandbox space sim Limit Theory has been cancelled, six years after a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, because main developer Josh Parnell is simply exhausted from working on it for so long. He's spent, he says: emotionally, mentally, physically, and financially. "Not in my darkest nightmares did I expect this day to ever come, but circumstances have reached a point that even my endless optimism…

Wipe out! Bossa Studios cancel Decksplash

Bossa Studios, the folks behind Surgeon Simulator and I Am Bread, have cancelled their latest game after it failed to draw enough players during a free open beta. Decksplash was a multiplayer game blending the skateboard stunts of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater with the ground-painting territory control battles of Splatoon. Were enough people in such a game to make it worth finishing? Bossa hoped to…

Might & Magic Showdown shutting down

Might & Magic Showdown [official site], Ubisoft's faux-tabletop wargame where players can paint their own miniature warmen, will shut down without even leaving early access. Fraser Brown said it was a lovely painting tool handcuffed to a rubbo game, so this isn't much of a surprise. Ubisoft have already pulled the game from sale and will shut down the servers on July 31st, making the…

News in the key of D minor: Auditorium Duet cancelled

Auditorium Duet [official site], the Kickstarted sequel to pleasing musical puzzler Auditorium, is cancelled. Developers Cipher Prime say that, despite their best efforts and putting earnings from other projects into it, they simply didn't have enough money to finish Auditorium Duet. That's a shame. I quite liked the first game, enjoying bending and reflecting rays of light towards musical blocks by placing direction-altering nodes. It…

Dragone: Platinum’s Scalebound cancelled

Microsoft, Scalebound's publishers, confirmed yesterday that they have cancelled the game but they didn't give a reason. Rumour has it development was mighty troubled and behind schedule, but rumour also has it that I ♡ Gary Jones so don't believe everything you read on toilet walls. Ah,…

The Reason Why Allison Road Was Cancelled, Kinda, Ish

Don't go chasing ghost stories. You'll find nothing and be disappointed or, worse, find something and discover it's so much less than you'd wanted. Whatever you think you saw or heard, it's gone. Yes, the makers of Allison Road [official site] have now explained why they cancelled their first-person horror inspired by the Silent Hills teaser game PT (Playable Teaser). No, none of what they…

Dusted: Legacy Of Kain F2P Spin-Off Nosgoth Cancelled

Square Enix have announced that they are cancelling Nosgoth [official site], the free-to-play humans vs. vampires multiplayer game vaguely connected to the Legacy of Kain series. It entered beta in January 2015 and will close down in May without having properly launched. It wasn't popular enough to keep going, Square Enix say, which always invites a lot of finger-pointing. Squeenix will keep the servers online…

Hemorrhage: World Of Darkness Screens And Details Leak

As sorry as I was to hear this month that CCP has cancelled its World of Darkness MMO, when a developer says that a game just isn't working out, I tend to believe them. Testers have started to leak little bits of World of Darkness, several sets of screenshots and a supposed playtest manual, and, well, it does look ropey. The playtest manual is from…

Final Death: World of Darkness MMO Cancelled

In the eight years since CCP Games started their World of Darkness MMO, we've barely heard more than tales about the adaptation of White Wolf's supernatural RPG universe, whispers in the night from mouths awfully close to our necks. It was to be a sandbox world where vampires battled and politicked for power, where everyone started as a human and theoretically could stay so, where…

Wow: Ashes Cricket 2013 Cancelled AFTER Release

This might be a first. 505 Games have announced the cancellation of Ashes Cricket 2013 after it's been released. The game, a terrible mess that certainly doesn't function as a cricket simulation, was briefly on sale via Steam, before mysteriously vanishing. We contacted Steam and publishers 505 Games to find out why at the time, but no one seemed to know. And now we do.…
