    Highlander: The Game

    Game » consists of 0 releases.

    This cancelled project would have accompanied Owen Macleod, a 2000-year-old swordsman, on a quest to kill another, more skilled immortal. The game was based on the film and TV series of the same name, and its story would have spanned several time-periods, from Ancient Rome to modern-day NYC.

    Where the hell has this game got to?

    There can be only one.
     
    But seriously...I don't ever even recall hearing anything about this game.  Is there a new movie or something?  Seems awfully late for a tie-in.

    The game has been kicking around for a few years now, it's an all new project no movie tie-in etc, sounded like it will or would be quite good, there was even a trailer for it somewhere, but nothing has been heard for a year or more. The only thing that does spring to mind is that one of the producers or writers etc of Highlander recently died so maybe there is an IP rights issue or something.

    Bummer. Those screenshots look good, and the whole Highlander story seems interesting. I only remember seeing a bit of the movie with Sean Connery that a bit cheesy and that TV show with Mr. Eyeborgs.

    I'm just a big fan of the show, really wish this wasn't canned.
