Let's face it, when a game gets announced or concept art gets leaked and it just so happens to peak your interest, there's only one thought that goes around in our head; PLEASE DON'T CANCEL, PLEASE DON'T CANCEL! Here's 5 times where that unfortunately happened. Please keep in mind that this is my personal list and don't forget to tell us your favorite games that were cancelled!
05. Silent Hills
So let's get this heart ache out the way. It's already on everyones list (for good reason) so I will be brief with this one! Silent Hills (or P.T) was set to be the reboot that the franchise needed as it seemed to be heading straight back to it's roots. However the relationship between Konami and Hideo Kojima turned extremely sour and the game (as well as Kojimas career at Konami) was cancelled. To this day we don't know what kind of game Silent Hills would have been. My guess is that it would have focused on a hand full of specific characters and their stories (similar to Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem) and their own personal Silent Hill. However we will never know for sure.
04. POTC: Armada of the Damned
Armada Of The Dammed would have been an amazing game. In fact now would be a perfect time to release it. Why? Because this game would have been a prequel to the entire franchise but also separate to the movies. You would play as a new character and You would have been able to create your own crew and decide whether to be evil or not. Seeing as the movies have wrapped up (probably… maybe) it would have been a perfect time to release a game with an original story. Maybe one day we will see a game like this but for some reason I just can't see it happening soon.
03. Megaman Legends 3
02. RESIDENT EVIL 3.5
So, Imagine Fatal Frame, Devil May Cry and Resident Evil came together to create a dark, Gothic, supernatural survival horror starring Leon S. Kennedy. That's what awaited us at Resident Evil 3.5. Now sure, this cancelled game did give us the Devil May Cry series and sure, Ghosts in a Resident Evil game? That would never happen (wink wink). But come on how amazing does this look!? Not even a Resident Evil spinoff?
Fun Fact: Originally the 1st Resident Evil was going to have supernatural aspects to the game, like messages appearing in blood on the walls.
01. Primal Carnage: Genesis
Oh boy… this one, for me is the one. The one game I was looking forward to the most. This is Primal Carnage:Genesis. If you are unfamiliar with the Primal Carnage, the series is an online multiplayer survival game where you fight or fight as dinosaurs! However Genesis would have broken the mold of the series as it played as a first person survival horror… WITH DINOSAURS! So far there has only been one true survival horror with dinosaurs and that just so happens to be one of my favorite games of all time (Dino Crisis). So you can imagine the hype I felt when I first saw this trailer. But just didn't come out. set back after set back, Hiatus after hiatus. and here we are 5 years later still waiting for… well something! The game has not been officially canned, but let's face it… Primal Carnage Genesis is the Half Life 3 of Dino games!
