Eight Days and The Getaway not cancelled?

We were still slightly reeling from the news that London Studio’s two PS3 titles – The Getaway and new IP Eight Days – had been ‘cancelled’ in favour of concentrating on both EyePet and SingStar. Until, that is, we were told that they hadn’t been cancelled as we all believed, and had instead been “put aside” for the time being.

Speaking to GameSpot, art director Nicolas Doucet said of the two titles:

“I would not say they have been abandoned, just put to one side. Much work had been done. The studio just wanted to focus on its strengths, EyeToy and SingStar. Given the potential of EyePet, priorities have been changed, but the other projects aren’t dead yet.”

Doucet went on to say how both projects were around halfway complete before they were pushed aside, and had “plans” – whatever that ominous statement means. We’re just happy we may still get to see two games that had us so excited all those years ago, even if both Getaway games were pretty terrible.
