Just like with the film industry, there are cancellations made for video games. There could be several reasons why a particular IP may never get released into the market, from a small budget to a publisher or developer calling it quits for no reason at all. Sadly, there are a number of great video games that showed promise of selling a ton of units but have been canned. We combined our top cancelled video games that we wanted to play but we’ll never get the chance to.
The word alone may cringe those who are currently in college but if you can look past the name, Thesis was a promising video game. Developed by Track7 Games, Thesis was a third-person adventure game. Set for launch in the past generation consoles, Thesis plays out a story of a journalist learning that his stepfather had passed away and it’s up to the player’s protagonist, Andonicos Kalogiruo, to reveal what happened to his stepfather and the paranormal activity that results in his journey. Alas the game was ultimately cancelled and the development team has since disbanded.
