The lights are on
Update: We've added a few games and corresponding entries to our list of cancelled games. The new items on the list below have an orange star next to them (*), or you can click here to read all the new entries at once. Enjoy! Or don't, because these games will likely never release, so we will probably never get to enjoy them.
Sometimes games don't make it to the finish line. Sometimes a game's cancellation is a huge disappointment. Sometimes, we don't even know a game exists until it gets canceled. Other times a game gets canceled so early in development that we never even hear about it (these obviously won't be included on the list). This is our evolving database of all the known games that have been canceled for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, ans Wii. Many of the games on this list haven't received official cancellations, but the evidence points to their disappearance. If they suddenly surface we will be more than happy to remove them from this list. If a game is suddenly canceled, however, you can bet it will show up here.
We want to keep adding to this list as much as possible, so check back time to time. Maybe the the sequel you are most excited about will make the list soon!

A lot of these ideas sound pretty sweet, especially the Dirty Harry game. It's a shame that a lot of these ideas haven't been picked up by other developers.
I wonder if Valve will come out and say they were making Half Life 3, but cancelled it a few years ago and just never got around to telling us.
I wouldn't be surprised if they did, then quietly released it a few months later, no ad campaign, no announcements, nothing.
Seems like a pretty Valve thing to do.
I wish Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned came out...
Why oh why did they cancel Indy???
Sad about quite a few of these. Faith and .45, the Pirates game, Gotham by Gaslight, and a good version of the Indiana Jones game all deserve an extra effort. Maybe Dirty Harry, too.
red wood falls, the outsider
I'm happy I don't see Star Wars: Battlefront 3 on there. It gives me hope, if only a little.
I wanted Six Days in Fullujia. People need to be more open minded. The controversy in that game is retarded. Buckets of blood and gore and nudity is ok, but iif you try to make a mature game with major political themes WOAH YOUVE CROSSED THE LINE! -_-
Also, Bomberman, deca 3d, and that omega 5 game.
