Developer Cancels Non-Existent PS3 Game

There have been a number of news articles posted on the Internet, especially on Xbox fansites, touting the fact that a PS3 game was cancelled due to high development costs. The source of the story came from a PS3 fansite called PS3Land. Their article reads: “Track7 Games has contacted PS3Land to inform us that Theseis for PlayStation 3 has been cancelled. The developer blames the problem on the exceptionally high cost of developing for PS3. For now, the game will only be released on Xbox 360 and PC.”

The only problem, according to the company in a statement to IGN, is that the game never even existed on the PlayStation 3. “PS3land.com wrote an erroneous article on June 29, 2006 regarding track7games and our upcoming game Theseis,” track7 Managing Director Vicky Valanos told IGN. “Track7games would like to clarify that we never cancelled something that did not exist in the first place. We plan to develop Theseis for PC and Xbox 360 in the near future. As for the PS3, we simply made a strategic decision to not move ahead because we deemed it not probably at this time.” This case shows exactly why Game Freaks 365 doesn’t jump the gun on news. We only will report what we can verify (or report it as unconfirmed).
