Top 10 Games Still Stuck In Development Hell

Top 10 Games Still Stuck In Development Hell




Brothers in Arms: Furious 4
Brothers in Arms: Furious 4

Another title first revealed at last year's E3, the next Brothers in Arms game caused quite a stir amongst series fans with its dramatic shift in overall tone and "goofy Inglourious Basterds" premise. Gearbox has stated that the shooter seeks to combine elements of their own Borderlands series and People Can Fly's wild shooter Bulletstorm, which would mark quite the (potentially awesome, or potentially embarrassing) turn from the typical BiA adventures of Sgt. Matt Baker. Like Overstrike above, the game has a focus on co-op action as players go on the hunt for Hitler himself.

Also like Overstrike, very few details about the game have been released since its original unveiling. A rumor about the game's cancellation arose last March, but Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford recently came out and said that Furious 4 is currently in the process of "evolving." What exactly it's evolving into is still unknown, but considering Gearbox is still in the process of prepping Borderlands 2 and Aliens: Colonial Marines for release, it makes sense that Furious 4 has been put on the backburner for a little bit. Either way, it's unlikely that we'll be seeing the wacky shooter on store shelves anytime soon.

Let's just be honest here: we know next to nothing about Agent. Originally mentioned in 2007, and outright "revealed" in 2009, all we can say about Rockstar's upcoming game is that it's being made for the PS3, it's roughly about spies during the Cold War, and it's got a cool logo. A handful of vague images were posted online in August of last year, and publisher Take-Two did confirm that the game is still in development around the same time, so at least there's reason to believe it still exists. When Agent will release, and perhaps for what generation of platforms, is still very much in question though.

While the original Prey, released in 2006, didn't exactly set the world on fire, its sequel, first announced last year, looked poised to bring a truly unique first-person open world experience to the market. The sci-fi shooter puts players in the shoes of Killian Samuels, an unfortunately named bounty hunter trying to discover his lost past on an alien planet.

Prey 2 was rumored to be cancelled last March and missed this past E3, but publisher Bethesda has since shut down such speculation, stating that the game simply hasn't met their "quality standards" yet. As Human Head probably continues to retool and go back to the drawing board, let us continue to hope that we don't have to wait another six years for any new details to surface.
