Vaporware |OT| Where Games Don't Die, They're Just MIA

what-is-vaporware

Have you ever had a moment where you were so excited for a game that just slowly disappeared from existence? You know that feeling, Deep Down that you hope that very game is still being worked on and not heading for an eventual cancellation? Heck,

What is that game(s) for you?

Personally, mine is Digimon Survive. This game was announced back in July of 2018 for a 2019 release… then it was given another trailer and delayed to 2020… then delayed to 2021 with basically no information since. Hopefully it’ll show up at the Bandai Namco event/stream this year.

For a game I don’t really follow too much, but I’m excited to see more of is the infamous Beyond Good & Evil 2. How many damn times can a game get rebooted? I guess we’ll see!

I was also excited for this. Seemed like a cool concept and the first digimon game to come to Xbox. Hopefully it turns back up.

Hope this comes true!

You can even download this game if you want.

Dude, I forgot this game existed because of how it just disappeared. And I was even somewhat excited for it. I hope it makes a reappearance soon.

Me remembering that “Phantom Dust” was never officially cancelled just moved to a different developer.

Gimme that shit now.

Technically, i don’t think Phil ever mentioned it officially moved developers, but they were looking.

God, what I wouldn’t give to see this come back!

Phantom dust is so incredible. It pains me that it’s seemingly dead now.

So, the biggest victims of Vaporware that I can think of come in a couple of categories…

Where the hell are they?

  • Babylon’s Fall AD
  • Bayonetta 3
  • Beyond Good & Evil 2
  • CUPHEAD The DLC
  • Dead Island 2 (honestly, this should be dead at this point)
  • Digimon: Survive
  • Hollow Knight: Silksong
  • The Last Night
  • Pikmin 4
  • Skull & Bones
  • Wild

Not officially cancelled, but might as well be:

  • Agent
  • Deep Down
  • Guardians of the Galaxy (Square Enix)
  • In the Valley of the Gods
  • Phantom Dust Remake
  • Tekken X Street Fighter

Cancelled shit shows that still break my heart:

  • The Grinder
  • Guitar Hero: Guns N’ Roses
  • Hellraid (later thrown in as DLC for Dying Light)
  • Prey 2
  • Scalebound
  • Silent Hills
  • Star Wars 1313
  • Star Wars Battlefront III

I’m sure I’m missing several and left Half-Life 3 off for obvious reasons.
