Rumor: This Is Vegas Cancelled

It's been awhile since we've heard anything new about This Is Vegas. Rumor has it that the game's been scrapped by Warner Bros. Interactive.

"Apparently the entire This Is Vegas project has been totally canned," a source told CVG. "Midway spent in the region of $43 million up to the point when it was being sold to WB. Alan Patmore, who was [Surreal] studio boss, either left or was let go - but considering the resources and art created this is a lot of work down the drain."

"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."

Vegas was said to be an open-world game that let you run amuck in Sin City. The grand scope of the project makes the $43 million figure seem plausible. It's a shame that we may never see the result of Surreal's labors.
