This past week has been filled with many companies releasing their 3rd quarter financial reports. While many of these financial reports can be boring to the average video game enthusiast. Sometimes we can learn about when to expect certain game releases or even if a project has been canceled. This is precisely what happened today during financial earnings call for Take-Two.
During a financial earnings call today, Take-Two revealed that they had canceled a $53 million unannounced project recently. This sent many people into speculation of what this game could have possibly been.
Shortly after this news started burning through social media a report came from Bloomberg clarifying a few details about the unannounced title. As per the report, the canceled game was a new IP from Hanger 13. For those unfamiliar with Hanger 13, they are the developer of the Mafia franchise. With the latest installment in that franchise being 2017’s Mafia III, since that release they have been relatively silent. With many assuming that they were working on a new installment in the Mafia franchise. Contrary to this belief the studio was supposedly working on a new IP codenamed Volt. However, the project was plagued with issues that ultimately led to the cancellation. There is currently no solid information on what the future of Hanger 13 will be. As a long-time Mafia fan, I can only hope that things work out in the end for the studio. Right now the future for Hanger 13 looks bleak.
