Mistwalker cans next Xbox 360 RPG

Cry On is no more.

AQ Interactive has announced that Xbox 360 title Cry On has been thrown in the bin.

This was to be the next RPG from Mistwalker, the studio behind Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey. Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi was producing the game, with Kimihiko Fujisaka designing the characters and Nobuo Uematsu signed up to provide the music.

Or not. In a statement issued to 1UP, AQI said it decided to cancel development "after analysing the current market environment and forecasts for the future".

The statement concluded, "We deeply apologise for troubling those who were awaiting its release."
