Sometimes, and despite a developer’s best intentions, a game just doesn’t turn out right. Because even if a game’s creators work hard for years to create and fine-tune a game, the end result sometimes is not what they had hoped for.
In other cases, perhaps the publisher did not like the game’s concept or ideas, leading to the project being canned outright. And at other times planned sequels are cancelled when the first game in a series just fails to sell well. Here follows a list of 10 video games which, for some reason or another, were cancelled.
1. Silent Hills
Silent Hills was to be the latest instalment of the renowned Silent Hill horror franchise, and it’s clear gamers worldwide were excited about the game when Konami released a playable teaser in the summer of 2014, as it was spooky and exciting and hinted at great things to come from Hideo Kojima’s game.
Actor Norman Reedus of Walking Dead fame and star director Guillermo del Toro were to take part in the project, which was sadly cancelled by Konami shortly after its announcement. This was due to Kojima’s falling out with Konami, which likely was related to his previous project Metal Gear Solid V taking a bit too long and costing too much (even if that game was still a solid success), but hopefully we’ll still get to see a new Silent Hill game in the future though.
