Another Dreamcast casualty

Long-awaited Dreamcast version of Commandos 2 bites the dust

Source - IGN

Since the Dreamcast's cancellation, owners of the console have been forced to watch potential dreamboats like Half-Life and Soul Reaver 2 sail away into the sunset never to return. The cancellation of Soul Reaver 2 by Eidos also drew a question mark over its other Dreamcast games, including the much-anticipated Commandos 2. Well, it is with a heavy heart that I'm forced to report the cancellation of Commandos 2. IGN printed the following statement as received from Eidos: "Following Sega's announcement stating the company's departure from the hardware manufacturing business, Eidos Interactive has carefully re-evaluated its investment in the Sega Dreamcast version of Commandos 2 and has decided to permanently suspend development of the game. Pyro Studios will instead focus its development efforts and resources on the PlayStation 2 version of Commandos, which is due for a Winter 2001 release." Please let's bow our heads.
