Yeah, looks like something I'd cancel.

A few interesting ideas here and there but really didn't do anything for me top to bottom. Some rather bad / bland ideas about what looks cool, but all very natural for this type of brainstorming stage (which I assume this was at).

I get the sense these were from across the development cycle, but what they landed on was like Destiny, but with sci-if fisher people vs sea monsters.

Concept art has a tendency to look amazing.

That being said, this concept art looks amazing. I'm a sucker for a good space opera. Id be interested to hear the pitch / see the design doc for this. Too bad, I wonder what killed it?

Huh, at first it looked like Mass Effect, then it veered into Avatar and finally into a Cthulu/Moby Dick type crossover. Very interesting concept.

Some of it looks good but yea looks like the game was all over the place and probably too grand and ambitious for Sony to continue funding. Would have needed destiny levels of investment and Sony probably didn't want to bet the farm on a new ip at that level after just smelling success with PS4 launch.

I wonder how old the art is, Sony had apparently spent a 100 million on it before cancelling, and as others have said it seems all over the place, so wonder if they ever focused in on some of it, before it got canned, because that's some really cool concepts.

Good thing God of war is reinventing the formula in a new setting and has garnered interest from non fans of the franchise.

Always interested in mental sci-fi games, so a bit disappointed this didn't pan out. Looked intriguing.

Hopefully some trailers/videos leak.


Always like to see sci-fi games on the level of Deus Ex and Mass Effect.

Just think about how silly what you posted was....this was a project that was never officially announced, and was only found out because of a leak. Every company cancels projects before they come to fruition, due to not delivering, other issues. Compare that to Scalebound which was announced, and then a major showcase at multiple E3's....Now, do you think that is the same?

Seeing this shit response in these threads twice tonight is sad.

First thing I thought too. The art looks so all over the place, I think I can see why it possibly didn't work out.

A kind of "yeah, not surprised this was cancelled" kind of weird. Looks like a mish mash of just a bunch of shit.

The bold part says it perfectly, IMO.

That's basically Destiny's entire schtick, just replace dinosaurs with dragons.

I guess it started to look too much like Horizon Zero Dawn which was perhaps already ahead production-wise. Overall, it looks like a mash-up of Destiny, ME, Far Cry 3 with Cthulu mythos.

Also that lady on the right has got Steve Buscemi eyes!

And Javier Bardem!
