The most disappointing games ever to be cancelled

1 of 13

Every now and again, video games get cancelled. This can be a bitter pill to swallow when we've already seen a trailer or gameplay and were excited for it. That being said, and this is important to keep in mind, games are often cancelled for a good reason.

Games are usually only cancelled when they aren't turning out the way the studio expected - any developer will tell you that the game doesn't actually come together until very late in production. It's kind of like assembling furniture, it's all a fragile disaster until you put in the final screw. However, there are many other reasons games get cancelled, some very unjustly as you will see, and some are just mysteries.

Coming up is 11 of the most disappointing games ever to be cancelled. Oddly enough, most of them are from the PS3/360 generation, with a few from the PS2/Xbox era. Most of the games looked like they could have been special, some however paved the way for even better things! So read on and discover what could have been.

    Factor 5 (the studio that made rogue squadron)'s star wars game for the wii. It used the wii remote in different ways for a variety of gamemodes like lightsaber dueling, space battles, and on-foot combat. It would have been like star wars kinect but actually good.

    I really wish we'd gotten Prey 2, Battlefront 2, Gaslight, and that Megaman FPS. So promising... why do the good ones die?
