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.
