Dungeon Keeper 3 Cancelled

A Bullfrog site update states that development has ceased on the strategy series' follow up.


Bullfrog Productions, the UK-based EA division known for its offbeat strategy games, has revealed that it has decided to end work on Dungeon Keeper 3 so as to work on other games. The site explains that "opportunities to develop new intellectual properties on new platforms such as PlayStation 2 have meant that DK3 has been put on hold." Though there are no plans for developing any new Dungeon Keeper games at the moment, the Bullfrog statement points out that this is always a possibility for the future.

The Dungeon Keeper titles were real-time strategy games that put players in the role of a dungeon overseer charged with managing an underground realm and protecting it against the goodly adventurers that conventionally appear in roleplaying games. The series won praise from reviewers for its innovative design and devilish humor.
