Long-in-development action title WarDevil has been cancelled for a second time, according to a Develop report.
Sources claimed that redundancies have been issued across Ignition's entire London-based studio and the game, recently re-dubbed Project Kane, has been tossed on the scrapheap.
However, it might be revived for a third time should an external developer show interest in taking it on.
Who remembers WarDevil? Well, apparently it's not dead - despite reports from October that claimed otherwise.
WarDevil, the "Xbox 2" game we thought was "breathtaking" in 2004, has been terminated.
UK-based dev team Digi-Guys has decided to tease us with more from its 3D action-adventure WarDevil - Unleash the Beast Within project.
A new trailer is being planned for this year's Tokyo Game Show (with a downloadable version set for release around then too), showing off more from the new RTE 1080 visual engine used to project in-game images that Digi-Guys proudly state will compare and surpass that of pre-rendered sequences.
If you want to see what all the fuss is about, the current trailer is over at the official site. Pesky Non-Disclosure Agreements are keeping the development team from revealing what format the project will be released on, but it's thought to be something we'll eventually see on Xbox 360. We'll keep you posted.
Digi-Guys, a hitherto unsighted games developer based at Pinewood Studios here in the UK, has released a short and breathtaking teaser trailer for its next-generation game WarDevil: Unleash the Beast Within, believed to be on its way to Xbox 2 before the end of 2005.
