50 Cent: Blood On The Sand is canned!

#1 Edited by AttackedCamo (821 posts) -

Update! Read now!:
Here is the update from Kotaku.

"Update, We Got it Wrong, Wrong, Wrong: Turns out that our internal sources were slightly confused and despite our best efforts we got it wrong. While I'm still waiting for some sort of official word from the companies involved, this is what we've heard: While 50-Cent: Blood on the Sand was indeed jettisoned by Activision, the project isn't dead. In fact we're told that it is approaching gold and that a deal, perhaps with THQ as publisher, is in the wings."

Stop screwing with my mind Kotaku!

Original post:

Kotaku is reporting that 50 Cent: Blood On The Sand has been canned. 

"Remember 50 Cent II, the sequel to discography-cum-video game 50-Cent: Bulletproof? The game that Sierra named 50-Cent: Blood on the Sand? The one that has a love-interest, slick graphics and tons of blood?


Yeah, it's dead. Caught in the unflinching cogs of big video game business, mergers, and close downs, we hear. Victim of a flooded genre and a potential publisher with one too many shooters on its hands.

But don't cry for Fifty. We hear the G-Unit-sporting rapper got his appearance cash, while Swordfish, the team behind the budding game, is likely to get sold off.

You gotta love this business."

From the previews I read, it sounded like it was shaping up to be a pretty good game.  Gameplay like The Club (a very unappreciated game) but only bloodier with a hip-hop vibe.  I guess some game had to get cut though...

Worst thing is, I saw thie trailer and I thought it didn't look that bad. Looked like it could have been so bad and just odd that it was good.

#14 Posted by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

Huh.
I thought I heard something about it being canceled a few weeks back.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

In all seriousness though, I totally would've bought this just for the sheer baditude.

#18 Posted by Vaxadrin (2297 posts) -

I was totally gonna rent this game and play it for 20 minutes. Now that dream has been shattered. :(

It's a win... A major win!

Kotaku just updated the story and said that it might not be canned after all. It might just end up being published by someone else. There is still hope left!

In  the words of the Foo Fighters,

Why'd you have to go 
And let it die
Why'd you have to go
And let it die
Why'd you have to go
And let it die
In too deep
And out of time
Why'd you have to go
And let it die

Kotaku says a lot of things. Although I would be about as surprised as I would be devestated if this was true.
