Top 10 Cancelled Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Star Wars 1313

Yes, It does look like fun, I am a huge fan of star wars games. - myusernameisthis

Star Wars 1313 was going to be a grittier Star Wars game, which was going to be rated M apparently, and early footage looked incredible and it revolved around Boba Fett in, what it looked like, his coming of age. It could have been a great game, then Disney bought the rights and the project was canned. What Star Wars game did we get? An unfinished game which cost $110. I didn't buy the new Battlefront. - idontknow

This was the biggest loss of the Disney takeover in my opinion. So long my bounty hunting dreams

Never really was into Star Wars but the game looked fun to play. - Chaotixhero

2 Gotham by Gaslight Gotham by Gaslight

It was Batman, in the victorian times- where the villain was Jack The Ripper- what else do I need to say- yes please, shower me with this awesome game. - idontknow

Remember the Batman Arkum series? The only good Batman games ever? Well Gotham by Gaslight was the original one but was cancelled. It would have been a good game but at least you can have fun to Arkum City and so on. - Chaotixhero


The aspect that was special about this game was that Steven Spielberg, the man himself was involved. A Spielberg video-game, please, that sound like Heaven. The gameplay footage looked great. If this game was released and it was incredible, it could have possibly been the next step of the Video Game industry, like I said, it had the man himself, Steven Spielberg. - idontknow

4 Sonic X-Treme

Sounded awesome because I love skateboarding games. A shame they canceled it. At least we got sonic riders.

This was gonna be a new Sonic game for the SEGA Saturn with new characters, multiple endings depending on your actions, interesting gameplay, and so on. But it was cancelled because Yuji Naka was a mean dirtbag. But instead we get...Sonic R. - Chaotixhero

This would have been a great 3D game for Classic Sonic. Modern Sonic has his own 3D adventures starting at Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast, so why couldn't Sega make a classic Sonic styled game for the Saturn? Sonic X-treme would have been a great competitor between Super Mario 64 & Crash Bandicoot.

5 Crash Bandicoot Evolution Crash Bandicoot Evolution

Crash Bandicoot has had a ton and I mean a ton of cancelled games, from Mark Cerny's to the Crash Team Racing remake to Landed to A new PS4 game to Twinsanity 2. Basically what I'm trying to say is that Crash Bandicoot has had a lot of cans. However, in my opinion, Evolution seemed the most interseting one out of the bunch. From the concept art and the idea itself, it seemed like a unique Crash game, which is what we needed, especially after 2 not good Crash Game (WOC and NK). It seemed like a Ratchet and Clank Crash game, which was awesome, that's why it was cancelled and turned to Twinsanity. Twinsanity is a good game but Evolution seemed way more interesting. - idontknow

6 Donkey Kong Racing
7 Sadness Sadness

Sadness was planned for the Nintendo Wii, from what I have seen, it looked like a much darker, a much sinister and a more emotional Nintendo game. It was going to be a physiological horror game. Imagine how the game could have been like. - idontknow

8 Conker's Other Bad Day Conker's Other Bad Day

Conkers Bad Fur Day is one awesome game, from the story to the South Park like humour to the unique characters to the fantastic gameplay to the giant singing poo and parodying other movies and all the violence in a Nintendo game. It was awesome and Bad Fury Day is one of my favourite video-games ever. So, when I hear there's a sequel, I get excited, especially when its gonna parody Terminator. However, Microsoft bought Rareware and the game never saw the light of day. However, I'm glad that this wasn't made on the Microsoft Rareware, Nuts and Bolts anyone? - idontknow

9 Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned
10 Super Mario 128

This looked really cool, controlling 128 Marios. Too bad it was canceled.

The Contenders

11 Star Fox 2
12 Highlander The Game
13 Silent Hills Silent Hills

This game looked amazing but stupid Konami just HAD to give it up! - Mcgillacuddy

Silent hill 2 is an incredible game suggest you play that

I actually have not played Silent Hill (I know I'm missing on a lot). However, I played P.T (Playable Teaser) of the game and it looked smashing excellent. The atmosphere was dense and it was creepy. The story loooked suspenseful. I was gonna get this game. Next thing I hear, it's cancelled. Why? I guess I'll play the other Silent Hill games. - idontknow

14 Mega Man Online

This was the game that was suppose to explain how the X series began and explain what happens to Classic Megaman, Roll, and the others. Sadly it got cancelled. - Chaotixhero

15 Project H.A.M.M.E.R
16 Jak 4 Jak 4

I'm a huge Jak and Daxter fan, so when they announced they cancelled Jak IV, I was devastaed, mainly because The Lost Frontier was a terrible game. Jak IV was gonna be developed by Naughty Dog again and it was gonna be on the PS3. However it was changed to The Last Of Us (an incredible game) after they felt like what they made wasn't Jak And Daxter- look at the concept arts. That is actually a brave move and I respect them for that, although, please just make Jak IV. - idontknow

17 Division 9
18 Geist Force
19 Langrisser Schwarz
20 Metroid 64 Metroid 64
21 Ghosts 'N Goblins Online
22 BC BC

Nothing much about it

B.C could have been Microsofts great exclusive game other than Halo. It looked like an ambitious game, it also had dinosaur's [Insert Jeff Goldblum impression]. It could have been a great game, who knows? - idontknow

23 Prey 2
24 Dragon Ball Online

This was the original Dragon Ball Xenoverse. You would do almost everything Xenoverse did...ALMOST. - Chaotixhero

25 Kuma Soldier
26 PC Cocoron
27 Space Fantasy Zone
28 Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots
29 Aquario of the Clockwork
30 Dirty Harry
31 Fallout Online

This was SUPPOSED to be an MMORPG from Interplay before Bethesda bought the rights to the fallout franchise. I think Bethesda would do a better job at this thought this would still be cool to play.

32 Dancing Eyes
33 Saints Row: Drive-By
34 Mega Man Legends 3

All mega man legends fan are now upset in a corner because of this. But oh don't worry Capcom gave us a Tron Bonnie spin-off and not a third Mega Man Legends game ARE YOU KIDDING ME CAPCOM?! - Chaotixhero

35 Bonk: Brink of Extinction

This is why konami can't have nice things

36 True Fantasy Live Online
37 Diddy Kong Pilot
38 Goldeneye 007 (Virtual Boy)

Goldeneye 007 imagine it there's a Virtual Boy version of it my answer is yes there is but is cancelled you know how the Virtual Boy sucks. The Goldeneye 007 on the Virtual Boy is a typical racing game but when Virtual Boy was a failure the Goldeneye 007 Virtual Boy fades away. By the way there are pictures of it

The Virtual Boy isn't as bad as you think. The red graphics are easy on the eyes, the 3d is better then the 3DS 3d, and it has some really good games. A lot of people who haven't played it hate it for no reason.

39 Super Mario 64 2

This turner into 128 which turner into pikmin

I want the legend back. - 50

Ever wondered a SMB 64 sequel? Well let me introduce you to the Super Mario 64 2 for the N64DD there are no much information on it but there's a prototype of it

40 This is Vegas
41 TimeSplitters 4

Is sort-of still being made but it does not have a studio behind it and had been previously cancelled several times

It was originally going to be announced in 2007, but instead what we got was Haze which was panned for a more popular demand that scraped because Crytek were not sure who to have on the cover to sell the game. - htoutlaws2012

42 Virtua Hamster
43 Super Mario's Wacky Worlds

Would've been a lot better than Hotel Mario.

Doesn't this sound like a much more fun game than Hotel Mario?

If the SNES-CD was released this game & Hotel Mario would've been some games for it.

44 Grand Theft Auto 64

We all know that the Race N Chase is the prototype of Grand Theft Auto but there's another one that may Grand Theft Auto Fans doesn't recognize its Grand Theft Auto 64 this Grand Theft Auto was intended for the N64 but it was cancelled. The gameplay is like Grand Theft Auto 1 and it just a improved version of it so don't bother buying it except if you are a hardcore Grand Theft Auto Fan

45 Thrill Kill

Nothing much about it

46 Halo DS

This would have been so, so cool to see.

This would have been so cool to see.

I Don't think this is even real - shfydgi

47 Prototype 3

Seriously Activision? At least a trilogy would've been awesome.

48 Ducktales 3

Shortly before DuckTales: Remastered was released, Capcom contacted Disney to work on DuckTales 3 but game was cancelled and later resurfaced as a revamped version for PS3 a few years ago. - playstationfan66
