Worst nightmare of a role-playing game fan is probably the cancelled RPG games. Quality of role-playing games are getting lower and lower except few titles such as Elder Scrolls, Witcher, Cyberpunk, and Baldur’s Gate. That just another reason why cancellation of games in development hits too hard.
RPG cancellation now especially sucks because of the hype culture. Here is the journey: The game gets announced, few concept arts released, fans hype, trailer released, fans hype more, game gets cancelled, fans experience total devastation.
Why would developers or publishers cancel a game in development? There could be variety of different reasons. Such as lack of budget, game end up being bad and not meeting the expectations, discord between creators, and even scams! Some kickstarter video game projects end up being scam therefore they never released.
