Project HON is cancelled by NCsoft

Why do you build me up, Buttercup, baby, just to let me down and mess me around?

Remember Project HON? It was a giant robot combat game in the Unreal 4 engine, and every trailer released for it looked stompy and beautiful. And now it’s dead, so you should probably use that to temper any sudden spurts of enthusiasm you feel just for that description alone.

The project was reportedly cancelled because of NCsoft‘s determination that there is insufficient interest in the title in the local games market and that the title just isn’t a good fit. The fact that the team was involved with an embezzlement scandal earlier this year probably didn’t help its case, either. If you’ll excuse me, I have to go sing a few verses of a hastily rewritten “Candle in the Wind” thanks to this news.
