Report: $43m This Is Vegas canned

Needed another 8-12 months to finish.

Warner Bros. has canned former Midway title This Is Vegas despite the game being less than a year from completion, according to a report.

CVG claims that Midway had spent "in the region of $43 million up to the point when it was being sold to WB" last year.

Last August Warner Bros. denied the game had been cancelled after a retailer pulled listings and told customers it was dead and buried.

Developer Surreal Software was closed down earlier this year.
