Publisher stakes claim to Gauntlet DS, This Is Vegas, and Criminal Web addresses, indicating previously abandoned projects may be revived.
Last year Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment purchased Midway for $49 million, instantly establishing itself in the fighting game genre with the Mortal Kombat series. Along with the fighting franchise, WBIE also picked up Midway's extensive back catalog of arcade and console games, as well as a few more recent titles that never saw the light of day.
That may change, as WBIE last week registered a handful of Web site domain names suggesting that the publisher is considering bringing out a trio of titles that had been canceled, assumed abandoned, or simply not acknowledged in some time. As spotted by Superannuation, WBIE staked its claim to career-criminal.com, gauntletds.com, gauntletthegame.com, and eclipse-vegas.com for the next two years. Of those sites, only eclipse-vegas.com is active, with nothing but a logo for This Is Vegas and the words "Coming soon…"
An open-world game, This Is Vegas for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC was originally intended as a holiday 2008 release. The game was supposed to take a tongue-in-cheek approach to the notorious Nevada gambling mecca, depicting its many vices through open-world gameplay.
However, Midway delayed the project, saying it needed to give developer Surreal Software (The Suffering: Ties that Bind) more time to make the title a must-have release. WBIE did not confirm any release plans for This Is Vegas after the Midway acquisition and in January laid off employees at Surreal and two other Seattle-based studios.
Criminal first surfaced in August of 2006, when a Midway job listing revealed that the open-world action game was in development at the publisher's Austin development studio. However, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 project was never officially announced before its 2008 cancellation, which was tied to a wave of layoffs.
Gauntlet DS is another game that surfaced in 2008 and has yet to see release. However, Gauntlet DS wasn't actually a Midway game. It was originally announced by Eidos (now part of Square Enix), but later surfaced on the Entertainment Software Rating Board database as being published by Majesco.
bring back the rush series! i know the ones after san francisco sucked but come on rush:sf was awesome. i had some hours and hours of good times with my brothers and sisters on that game back in the day. battle mode was the best
well since warner bros bought midway i hope a new rush game is going to be coming out.san francisco rush,rush 2 and sf rush 2049 were some of the best racing games.
Gauntlet DS has been done for almost 3 years now, I wish someone would just release the damn thing already!!
When I heard Warner saved Midway I was like good but I also feel like I don't care much about anything else until I know whats coming up and when the next Mortal Kombat will come out.... I hope Ed Boon does something special with the next MK, I hope they add a character editor in the game with the kind of options found in Soul Calibur IV, I also hope they introduce some new fighters plus a good collection of returning fighters.....
huh. so gauntlet DS is gonna come out after all... i was beginning to worry! I was so psyched for that game untill it got cancelled. now i can dream again XD
This is Vegas sounds like a less serious version of Grand Theft Auto which should do well. Gauntlet is basically a fantasy version of Dynasty Warriors, or so I see it, and should be okay. Don't know anything about Criminal.
Oh This is Vegas you coy little strumpet, how long will you toy with my love for you? Seriously, it's the single most anticipated game for me for the last 4 years and the fact it was never confirmed dead or alive has always had me checking and rechecking websites and forums. Pleas let it be real
Here's hoping Gauntlet DS comes this time. :D I need another Gauntlet game to clean the bad taste of Seven Sorrows out of my mouth. :x
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
