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.

I still am quite upset over Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned. I never play MMOs but was considering it for this one.
They should also add Okami 2 considering the original director had said he wanted to make a sequel but wasn't going to because somebody else picked it up and made Okamiden. Thank you Kuniomi Matsushita! We almost had a last piece of gold from Clover Studios.

Half of these games I would've loved, and the other half. . . well. . . Would love a really good Survivor game with a true social aspect and wonder what an Office game would've ended up as. . .
I remember being insanely disappointed when dirty harry got canceled, also Total Overdose was awesome, you could throw exploding pinatas, shoot people with dual machine gun guitar cases, drive cars into explosive tankers and jump out shooting, it was insane I'm really sad to hear the studio that made it closed
Half of those would've sucked, the other half would've been great
wow, i mean wow!! thats a lot
I was really excited for Indiana Jones. Too bad it never happened.
so pissed about Coded Arms Assault...i loved the two psp games!
I was wondering if Wardevil had finally been cancelled.
I wished Gotham by Gaslight was never cancelled. Wonder what kind of game it would be if it were ever made.
"Ensemble was disbanded buy Microsoft."
The most surprising thing on this list is that someone was making a new Bonk game.
Why isn't Star Wars Battlefront III on the list?
