13 Biggest Video Games That Never Came Out

13 Biggest Video Games That Never Came Out

All forms of entertainment have their unfinished projects, but I’ve found there’s always something especially painful about learning that a long-awaited game will never come out. We never properly knew it, so it’s not exactly like the loss of a loved one; it’s more like spending years wanting to visit a well-loved landmark, only to find it’s been wiped off the map or irreparably damaged. The interactivity of games means these are real memories we’re losing out on. Thousands of games have suffered such a fate. We don’t even know the names of many of them, but some have had their names shouted to crowds at shows like E3 and generated discussions even some properly released games should envy. These are the games we’re talking about here, and fittingly for the bad luck so many of them seem to have suffered, there are thirteen of them. Continue reading…

Star Wars Battlefront Sales Top 14 Million

Star Wars Battlefront Sales Top 14 Million

Sold in figures are for copies of the games sold to retailers, while sold through numbers represent copies in the hands of consumers. Still, the company announced at the beginning of January Star Wars Battlefront sold in 12 million copies since the game’s November release. Regardless of sold in or sold through, there’s still quite a demand for the shooter. Continue reading…

Disney Cancels Infinity, No Longer Self-Publishing Games

Disney Cancels Infinity, No Longer Self-Publishing Games

UPDATE: Disney responded to our request for comment with the following statement: “After a thorough evaluation, we have modified our approach to console gaming and will transition exclusively to a licensing model. This shift in strategy means we will cease production of Disney Infinity, where the lack of growth in the toys-to-life market, coupled with high development costs, has created a challenging business model.  This means that we will be shutting down Avalanche, our internal studio that developed the game.  This was a difficult decision that we did not take lightly given the quality of Disney Infinity and its many passionate fans.” Continue reading…
