Moscow Rhapsody [X360 PS3 – Cancelled]

Moscow Rhapsody is a cancelled FPS that was in development for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 by Illusion Softworks before they were were acquired by Take-Two Interactive / 2K Czech in January 2008 and renamed 2K Czech. As we can read in Wikipedia, the company’s first well known game was Hidden & Dangerous in 1999 and their own 3D engine was prepared for the game Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven, which was first released in 2002. After some years the studio started to work on Mafia II, Moscow Rhapsody and Enemy in Sight (the cancelled spiritual sequel to the Hidden and Dangerous series).

Moscow Rhapsody was probably canned to shift development resources into Mafia 2.
