SCEE Studio London producer Nicolas Doucet has revealed in an interview with Gamekult that The Getaway 3 and Eight Days weren’t canned, but were in fact “put aside”.
The assumption was that both games were swept under the rug for EyePet and were subsequently canned. However, that now doesn’t seem to be the case.
“I would not say they were abandoned, just put aside. 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 it is not a “death” of other projects. Ultimately, this decision has benefited everyone.”
Doucet also revealed that they were both in the halfway stage of development.
