The lights are on
InSane – little was known about InSane. Guillermo del Toro, the film director behind Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy
was working on it and it was supposed to be "...a very different type
of horror game. It's not survival horror. It's truly a strange, geeky
mix. It's a Lovecraftian thing," according to del Toro. Whatever it was
going to be, it's done now.
Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) – Furious 4 wasn't so much cancelled as much as it has been retooled into something different. We don't know what it will be just yet, but it won't be called Brothers in Arms.
Sadness (Wii) – Sadness was announced early in the Wii's life-cycle, and it had a a lot of promise. The game was about a woman protecting her blind, paranoid schizophrenic, narcoleptic son in pre-World War I Ukraine. The game was going to be entirely in black and white, but during its four years of troubled development, the game was never shown playable.
Theseis (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) – Theseis was going to be God of War/Tomb Raider-esque action game following the exploits of two Greek treasure hunting journalists who dabble in paranormal research. Alas, the game was too ambitious for its own good, and never made it through development.
Gun Loco (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) – Gun Loco was a Square Enix third-person shooter parkour title that placed characters in the shoes of an ex-convict fighting for survival on a prison planet. The game was canceled recently. You can read a larger preview of the game here, and read about its cancellation here.
Frame City Killer (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) – Frame City Killer put you in the shoes of an undercover agent in a future Asian city, pulling off assorted assassinations and performing Heavy Rain-like detective sequences on your journey to eliminate a deadly drug called Visual Acid.

There's a couple I have seen that aren't here. Hero and Gorrilla Nation to name a couple. Hero in particular looked really interesting.
well some of these did deserve death but it's still sad to see so many games getting canceled that could have been awesome.
Awwww, not Bonk! XD
you guys should add Demonic to that list because that was supposed to be released very early in this generation's cycle and was canceled abruptly and the remnants of the video game were used in grandma's boy.
It's too bad about the Gaslight Batman game and the Pirates game - especially when Disney went and released a crappy Tron game. Sometimes they just don't get it.
Whats up with all the using the wrong spelling of words?
Aw... Ender's Game by a good Developer would have been cool.
Aww you guys forget Frame City Killer. I remember reserving that lol.
This is to bad, Gotham by gaslight and the Pirates Armada game looked promising,oh well now we'll never know.
Really disappointed about Faith and a .45. Love those noir style games, and probably the best named game in quite a while.
i love how they put duke nukem forever on this
Why Tiberium Why? I don't CARE how bad you might have been I still would have played you!
man i would have loved a dirty harry game :(
I thought This is Vegas and Armada of the Damned looked pretty interesting. And I don't know why the Wii was excluded from this list, but I'll add The Grinder, which look like a first person version of HVS' Hunter series. That game had my attention, but it looks like its dead. There was also Project Hammer, from the early Wii sizzle reels.
And what about that game from the original PS3 footage, it was called Eight Days. I thought that one looked cool, though Uncharted eventually became what it looked like Eight Days was going to do
