Over at Laughing Hyena‘s Live Journal page, we can read a couple of interesting posts about the unreleased Werewolf: The Apocalypse games: “Back at Gencon 1995, White Wolf announced a licensing agreement with Capcom to make a game based on Werewolf: the Apocalypse. The game’s finished date was set for 1996 and would be playable for the Playstation and Sega Saturn consoles at the time.” […] “According to Gamespot, Capcom stopped working on the project when they realized it had too many genre elements and just didn’t seem to fit together. This doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, as Capcom also created Resident Evil during this time. A game in which Capcom itself had to create a genre name for it. But then again, White Wolf also stopped making RPG books for Street Fighter as well. Either the books didn’t sell well, or there might have been some in-fighting as for the direction the W:tA game was going to take.“
The second Werewolf game was in development for the PC: “The game I did know about and actually waited for, was DreamForge Intertainment’s Werewolf: the Apocalypse – The Heart of Gaia for the PC, which was going to use the Unreal engine from Epic Games.” […] “Because ASC became bankrupt, Dreamforge couldn’t find a proper game publisher after that and had to close up as well. The game was finished close to it’s release date and that means a copy of the unpublished game exists some where.“

The only two Werewolf videogames that were in development never got a release, so we wonder if it’s just a coincidence or there’s some sort of curse around it.

We still miss a page for the Werewolf PC game, maybe we’ll add it later.
