More video game news, and more bad video news at that. Remember the rumoured open-world Star Wars game where we were supposed to play as a bounty hunter and have lots of fun adventuring across the stars? No? Well, never mind now; the project has been cancelled. Shutdown follows the shutdown of the game’s developer, Visceral Studio, the one responsible for the awesome (well, mostly) Dead Space trilogy. The game went through a bit of a turmoil ever since its inception; at first it was supposed to be a linear action-adventure similiar to Uncharted, then, after EA bought out Visceral, the idea was to make it an open-world experience and now, well, it is dead.
Oh well. It is not like EA butchering both other companies and Star Wars titles is anything new. Visceral Studio is just the last one in the long line of good video game devs that have been swallowed up by the EA scumbags. Lets just hope that Bioware will not be the next one. As for their SW game, rumours of its cancellation were afloat for months now, so finally getting to know it for sure does at least not hit that hard.
