Warner Bros Says This Is Vegas Not Canceled

Rumor of the day: According to a "cast iron source" quoted by Computer and Video Games, Warner Brother's open-world tourism simulator This is Vegas has been canceled. How much did the foray into Sin City cost? Reportedly over $50 million.

The game was originally begun at Midway who apparently spent around $43 million developing it, then WB snapped it up along with other properties when Midway went bust. It limped along for awhile, until, apparently, it was canned, along with Surreal Software, the studio behind the game.

"It was moving along to a point where the title was on the schedule for release late last year - but still needed another eight months to a year to finish with a studio burn rate of $250,000 per month," CVG's source said. "It's a ridiculous waste of money,"he/she added. No doubt.
