Some footage of Ignition Entertainment’s sci-fi FPS Reich has surfaced, following the Flordia branch’s closure last week.

There’s five different videos of it below, courtesy of GameVideos.

Ignition’s Florida base was shuttered and Reich canned after the firm’s London studio was closed in September, along with the cancellation of its WarDevil project.

Back in 2008, it was announced Reich would use Unreal Engine 3, and that the game would add “something fresh and exciting to one of the industry’s core genres”.

It was originally slated for release in late 2009.

Reich didn’t look half-bad. It’s a shame, really.

    I really wish Tracey Morgan wasn’t at the beginning of every video for this.

    It’s a shame really… While linear CoD sells…

    I dub the monster in the first video Cheeky Chops.

    Looked quite good, and I’ve been put off by most FPS games in recent years.

    I wouldn’t say it’s a shame that the game got cancelled. I would say it’s a shame that there isn’t variable pricing for disc based games. That way if a publisher believes it will sell to a niche audience, they could just charge more to make up for the lack of interest.
