This Is Ignition's Cancelled $US20m Baby

Ignition Entertainment shuttered its Florida studio earlier this month, deep-sixing the game the 70 developers were building, which was an FPS rumoured to have cost $US20 million. Video of the game, "Reich" has surfaced.

Develop magazine has three clips of the game, which showcase the protagonist's powerful telekinetic abilities and the real-time physics engine handling their aftermath. A source told Develop that of nine levels planned in the game, just two were completed. "It would be difficult to outsource the rest of the game since the other stages are partially completed." the source told Develop.

As for that $US20 million price tag, "past management staff has mismanaged the funds," the source said. "There was no corporate monitoring on spending."

Two more videos can be seen at the link, with more details and developer commentary.

    that looked pretty bad-ass i could have seen myself buying that ....... :(

    That was pretty damn cool.

    After they've spent 20 million on the game is it hard to justify however many more millions on it to recoup it's losses?

    damnnnnnnnn
    like force unleashed only better

    That looks awesome, like playing as Jack from ME2 or somthing. Sad they're not going to finish making it.

    Holy crap!
    That looks nuts!! :|

    Wow...

    I understand why they'd want to pull the plug based on expenditure, but I seriously want that game.

    Reminds a alot of the tech demo turned game, Cell Factor, I really like the concept behind it, not sure how well it would play though.

    A Ignition rep has said earlier that the game hasn't been canceled.
    It is being reevaluated and moved “in the right direction.”

    But still have to wait for the official word

    FPS - First Person Sith.

    If the game isn't worth $20M unfinished, it can't be that good.

    That looked awsome.....
    Just me who thinks this, or would this work well with Kinect or the move?

      *SLAP*
      NO!!!
      YOU SHUT YOUR FILTHY MOUTH!!
      *SLAP SLAP SLAP*

      LEAVE THOSE BASTARDS TO ROT!!
      *SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP*

      MOTION CONTROL MY ARSE!!

      *ahem*

        Calm down loops. o.O

        It's cancelled, it can't be ruined by those atrocities they call 'Motion Control'.

        Hush now, calm.

        Shhh.
