As we can read on Wikipedia, a Getaway 3 tech demo featuring Piccadilly Circus was demonstrated in May 2005 at E3, but this was not directly from the game. It was confirmed that the game would again be set in London but rumours had been circulating that the game could also feature Amsterdam, which was later confirmed by a video shown at the E3 convention in 2006. Information regarding The Getaway was released on 7 March 2008 by screenplay writer Katie Ellwood, who affirmed the action title was still in the works. No estimated release date was given, however, Ellwood did say that Sony were making deals with movie companies about the possibility of a future film adaptation of The Getaway 3.
On 4 June 2008 The Getaway 3 was officially cancelled, but in October 2009 the game was reported as not being cancelled but “on hold”. Will The Getaway 3 really be resurrected? We’ll have to wait and see..
