Sony have cancelled an unannounced sci-fi shooter from developer Final Strike Games. The game was reportedly in development for over three years for PlayStation 5 and PC.
Sony have a lot of live service games in development across their first-party studios but also third-party partners. We know that they're working on plenty of shooters, which is a part of Sony's new strategy to push for more multiplayer and live service games.
However, one such project has seemingly been cancelled by Sony, as reported by Timur222 on Twitter. The game in question is an AAA shooter from Final Strike Games, known for 3v3 shooter Rocket Arena, which was published by EA .
According to Timur222's information, the game had a sci-fi theme and was in development for at least three years. It was supposed to be a PlayStation 5 console exclusive while also launching on PC .
"Sony has canceled an unannounced sci-fi shooter at Final Strike Games. The game was in development for 3 years. (Was 2 years away from shipping) Platforms were PS5 and PC," Timur222 tweeted, citing a developer who was laid off from the studio that apparently had a 40 per cent head reduction recently.
Given that the game was never officially announced, there's a good chance we never find out what kind of multiplayer shooter this was supposed to be. Final Strike Games have worked on various shooter games including support development on Fortnite, Halo 5 Guardians and Halo 4, so they have plenty of experience in creating different multiplayer shooters.
Interestingly, the studio still lists this unannounced AAA title on their website , describing the game as a "unannounced New IP AAA PVP shooter for PC and Console".
And while it's certainly possible that Final Strike Games' title was cancelled by Sony, we suggest you take the information with a grain of salt, until we get an official confirmation, if one ever comes.
Despite the cancellation, Sony still has plenty of games in the works, including shooters, so those of you who are usually excited for such games should probably tune in to the rumoured PlayStation Showcase, which reportedly airs later this month.
