Midway's chief marketing officer Steve Allison has shed a bit more light on the publisher's decision to can Fear & Respect.
Hip Hoppers around the globe will be left weeping into their glasses of Cristal today with the news that PS2 and Xbox title Fear & Respect has been cancelled.
Fear & Respect was billed as an "innovative action adventure game" based in "the intense, urban environment of South Central LA." The game was being developed in collaboration John Singleton, the writer and director of classic 90s gangster flick Boyz n the Hood, and Snoop Dogg was set to lend his voice and likeness.
Not any more, though - speaking to Gamespot, Midway CEO David Zucker said: "Fear & Respect is on the back burner. We are still working with Snoop and John Singleton to do a game, but the actual game Fear & Respect is cancelled."
