The lights are on
Halo: Chronicles (Xbox 360) – Lord of the Rings and Meet the Feebles film director Peter Jackson and his company Wingnut Interactive were working on a Halo game that was meant to be episodic. But, like everything Halo related that Jackson gets his hands on (he was producing the Halo film), it was canceled. It looks like Halo 4 may be picking up the episodic idea, however, with Spartan Ops.
Halo MMO (Xbox 360) – Ensemble Studios, the developers that released Halo Wars, were working on a Halo MMO, but it seems like they weren't able to get very far. After the release of Halo Wars, Ensemble was disbanded buy Microsoft.
Heavenly Sword 2 (PS3) – Martin Binfield, the animation team lead for the cutscenes of the original Heavenly Sword, posted his resume online and apparently Heavenly Sword 2 began development, but was canceled, presumably in favor of focusing on Enslaved. Heavenly Sword had a pretty succinct ending, a rarity in the world of video game narrative, so it’s not too disappointing that the game was shelved. Plus, Enslaved was pretty sweet.

It's kinda sad that most are really cool, some are not.
Well I hope that no game has to be cancelled, I feel that everyone that has creativity should be able to express it. That is what is so great about being apart of the gaming world. We take for granted all the big releases and complain about how the games could have been better. We should all take a look at all the creativity that goes into crafting great stories. And producing great looking games.
Why did Gotham by Gaslight have to be canceled? *sobs uncontrolably*
I liked the Gotham by Gaslight arc, and was pretty stoked about this game (after I heard it was cancelled).
Some of those games sounded good...sucks they were canceled.
