Fear & Respect [Cancelled]

Fear & Respect [Cancelled]

Fear & Respect was a video game for the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation 2, the Xbox, and the Xbox 360 consoles that has been cancelled, although intended for a 2006 release. John Singleton was involved in the production of the game. He has directed movies (Boyz N the Hood, Baby Boy and 2 Fast 2 Furious) and has been involved with other video games in the past.

The game featured Snoop Dogg (who plays Goldie) and other characters. The player played in a third person mode. The objective of the game is to fight to gain respect of rival gangs in South Central Los Angeles. If the player gains a gang’s respect, then they will treat you differently than if they fear you.

At the time of announcement, there were very few details released about the game. However, one trailer and thirteen screenshots have been made available by Midway.

Although the game was intended for a 2006 release, however, as of March 1, 2006, Fear and Respect has been officially cancelled, as reported by GameSpot. It was believed that the game has been cancelled because of growing competition within the urban-themed video games market. The game is the earliest cancelled game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Expected gameplay elements include hand-to-hand combat, weapon shooting mechanics, and a ‘Fear & Respect’ system that dictates how other characters view your alter ego on the streets.
    Although this game was originally planned for PS2 and Xbox, the title’s focus was later pushed towards next-gen consoles. It was later cancelled outright.

    Fear & Respect is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of 2005 on the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft.

    Fear & Respect is a cutting-edge third-person action game that realistically depicts life in a South Central Los Angeles gang. You will step onto the streets fresh from prison as a “retired” OG who is reluctantly brought back into the life. You will shoot and brawl your way through multiple levels of gameplay, in an attempt to help your crew against the backdrop of a sweltering South Central summer. On these streets, it’s all about your rep, and only you can decide if want your enemies to look at you with fear – or with respect
