Highlander [X360 PS3 PC – Cancelled]

Highlander is a canceled third-person action game developed by Widescreen Games which was going to be published by Square-Enix for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. The player had to control Owen MacLeod, a predecessor of the more famous immortals Connor MacLeod and Duncan MacLeod of the tv series, through an epic adventure that began in the Colosseum of ancient Rome and which was supposed to be concluded in the New York of our time.

Much like Ninja Gaiden, the main character could use many kinds of weapons and spells. The possibility of choosing between various fighting styles and the division of the game in eighteen missions suggests that Devil May Cry was an inspiration too. Even if the game was originally announced in 2005, the first trailer of Highlander, embedded below, was shown to the public only in 2008. In 2010, Square Enix officially confirmed the cancellation of this project.

    I worked in that company at that time. The game was almost finished but it was very bad. This is why they cancelled it.

    I want to play this bad game! If no one give us a copy of it, i’ll cut monokoma’s head! (they said he is an immortal too xd). Just kidding, eh :)

    even though the game is cancelled, would there ever by a way to get a copy of the beta….for the right price of course

    Even though the person who worked on this game says it was bad, please elaborate on that statement. From the screenshots and the trailer it would have sounded like a good action-packed game. Sadly, it was cancelled.

    If the game was complete, why is nobody posting it on the interenet so that many people could play it?
    What’s the reason to keep it, if it’s finished and was cancelled then the developers should put it on the internet like did Volition with the psp version of Saints Row.
