Starsky and Hutch 2 [PS2/XBOX – Cancelled]

Starsky & Hutch 2 is a cancelled mission-based driving game based on the TV series with the same name, that was in development by Mind’s Eye for the original Xbox and Playstation 2. The project was announced in 2003 when Empire Interactive signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Sony Pictures to publish a sequel to their first Starsky & Hutch game.

As wrote by IGN, Starsky & Hutch 2 was shown behind closed doors at Empire Interactive’s booth during E3 2004, featuring the same drive and shoot gameplay as the original, and an on-rails Virtua Cop-esque mode up to 2 players. In 2005 Mind’s Eye Productions was acquired by Disney Interactive and their Starsky & Hutch 2 project was canned. The few images preserved in the gallery below are probably from a target render and not in-game.

  1. Mr Coderman!

    I worked on the project and for Minds Eye Productions. It was Empire that pulled the plug on the project – then they tried to get a games company from Oxford to finish the game.
    I have no idea on the reasoning for this, the game was only a few months from being finished – and was a great improvement on the original.

    FYI – the images are renders, not in-game shots.
    Also – the game was targeted for the PC as well as the XBOX and PS2.
