AFAIK, this game was never released and should be considered vaporware. Was most likely "in development" just for Tim Langdell to show that his Edge studio was active when he was using the company's name to blackmail companies like EA for the use in games like Mirror's Edge.

We're perfectly fine with having canceled games in the database (though that doesn't mean we want people creating new pages for games that have already been canceled). Everything you just wrote sounds like it'd be interesting information to have on that page, actually.

That's exactly right. In order for him to keep the "EDGE" trademark (so he could keep suing people), he needed to show that his studio was actually real. So on his website he claimed games like this were in development and "coming out soon". He went as far as getting "Racers" rated by the ESRB. But in reality there was no game at all, just a logo on his website. And his company is just himself with no employees. His actions were pretty ridiculous.

EDIT:

After doing some research, it turns out this game was released on the PC:
