Rumor: Big MS 1st Party Title Canned, Top Exec on the Way Out
Posted by XanTium | November 11 03:00 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From n4g.com:


1up Yours this week (11/09/07) mentions a couple of "hot rumors" near the end of the podcast. Here are the transcripts from the relevant segments in the podcast:

Shane (host/EGM editor): "I won't go into exacting detail because these rumors haven't been confirmed but they're definitely swirling around. They're probably gonna break next week. So a preview of what you may be seeing next week. A big Microsoft first-party title that has been in the works for a very long time that people are very excited for, sounds like it's being canceled. And a Microsoft executive who's pretty high up, who's been a voice for the company, sounds like he's on the way out. (1:58:11-1:58:37)"

Sounds like maybe Banjo Kazooie and Major Nelson. I hope the major is going.

You're probably right. Saw a trailer for it years ago, and since then very little has happened.

I think Banjo Kazooie because Microsoft wants RARE to make Halo 4 for them while Bungie works on something else for the time being.

Well I could live with a Halo Wars cancellation. I would be very disappointed if either Banjo Kazooie or Alan Wake gets canceled.

EDIT: It's not Alan Wake - http://n4g.com/News-82334.aspx

EDIT 2: And 2 Fable 2 devs have said that it's not them either - http://n4g.com/xbox360/News-82389.aspx

Huxley isn't first party, has already had a beta test, and is going into its second beta this month in Korea.

I'd say it's mostly bullshit, MS don't comment on rumor, I doubt it's a big title..I doubt it will be MN, Peter Moore went for family reasons, probably a similar thing to this other person.
