I don't see how a dev can put that much into a game just to have it canceled. I mean when I saw the video it looked pretty far along, though I'm sure a lot of maps needed to be done. It looked complete though as far as the map they used in the video.

I dunno, they showed trailers at E3, this states it's off the schedule for release, maybe it's delayed, maybe it's a mistake. If it has been canned then ::

According to Gamespot, its not definitely been canned because there are other publishing arms in the Activision Blizzard family and it may be released through one of them.

Nothing to worry about becuase its most likely would have been a mediocre game anyway.

Even a mediocre game can turn into a good game if it has coop. I hope it's not canned

They're the publisher. They can do whatever they want.

Edit: I've worked in print publishing, and we had several projects canceled in mid-stream. There was one where an art director had put in probably about 2 months of full-time work, and it was gone in a finger snap. That's the way it goes.
