It’s surprisingly common for a video game to be cancelled during it’s development. Maybe the mechanics aren’t fun, or the art style is dated, or the narrative is underwhelming, or worse still someone on high decides the developers are better used on other projects. Usually the reasons to cancel a game are within reason but sometimes it’s a crying shame and a potential masterpiece is left gathering dust. With that in mind here are 7 Cancelled Video Games that would have been epic.

Star wars 1313 – Criminal Underworld
8 days – Real time events over 8 days
Scalebound – Xbox exclusive
Batman: Gotham By Gaslight – Steampunk Batman!
Rainbow 6: Patriots – Wall Street Criminals
Legacy of Kain: Dead Son – Cancelled after 3 years of work
Silent Hills – We wouldn’t have Resident evil 7 without it. Oh Lisa. One day we will be together
