Desperados Gangs is a cancelled tactical action game that was in development by Spellbound Entertainment, as a new chapter in the Desperados series. This new game was planned to be released for Xbox 360′s Live Arcade, PS3 & PSvita’s PSN, Smartphones and PC Digital Download but sadly they were not able to find a publisher to fund the project.
Desperados Gangs was going to have a more deeper multiplayer gameplay, with VS and coop modes, online and offline options, different character classes to chose from and AI-controlled mercenaries to recruit. Players would have been able to chose from 5 different classes: the Gunfighter, the Brawler, the Healer, the Engineer and the Spy, while keeping in mind that cooperation would be extremely important to achieve the different objectives, as sabotage or rescue missions.
What they planned for Desperados Gangs was to play it something like Lead & Gold or Team Fortress 2 to evolve the series, with the option to make the game more “steampunk”, to be able to have new styles of weapons, features, ect.
Only few artworks from Desperados Gangs are archived in the gallery below, to preserve its lost existence.
