TimeSplitters 4 [Wii – Cancelled]

TimeSplitters 4 was not only planned for PS3 and Xbox 360 but also for Wii. The game was planned to be a “down-sized” version with several new gameplay elements due to the unique control interface. While most of FRD staff was working on the large PS3 and Xbox 360 version, only a small team was responsible for converting the assets for Wii.

When Free Radical Design filed bankrupty, the project was shelved.



Stuntman: Demolition [Wii – Cancelled]

In 2007, THQ-owned and now closed Locomotive Games developed a Wii game called Stuntman: Demolition. While both PS3 and Xbox 360 got Stuntman: Ignition, the Wii console was to get its own iteration. Due to mediocre sales of the Xbox 360/PS3 version, THQ decided to cancel the project and instead retired the whole franchise.

Stuntman: Demolition was the first title in the franchise which should have got an ongoing story and characters. You will find some character and vehicle art below.
