The BBC confirmed today that the originally planned trilogy of Dr. Who games has been cut short. Paul Joffe of the BBC, Speaking with Polygon, stated that, "We will not be releasing any further Eternity Clock games, nor did any other go into production."
The Eternity Clock received generally poor reception from critics and consumers. Citing "a plethora of bugs" and "sadistic checkpoints, the game earned a 3.5 in our GameSpot review. Regardless, the relationship between the game's developer, Supermassive Games, "was and continues to be good," according to Joffe. However, he added, "We also have no current work with Supermassive. We do have Doctor Who games in the pipeline and we will be announcing these in due course."
Future games in the using the Dr. Who license will very likely be mobile. Joffe said, "We're determined to focus on mobile, console didn't fit into the long term strategic vision in cases where BBC Worldwide would publish," Joffe said.
