Moonshot cancels Fallen Frontier, to focus on mobile

By Brenna Hillier, Wednesday, 13 February 2013 00:22 GMT

Here’s a story that went under our radar in January: Moonshot has cancelled Fallen Frontier and is instead working on a top-down stealth game for iPad called Third Eye Crime. The news is worth dusting off even this late because Moonshot is staffed by a number of former Bungie employees, and if they can’t sell a game to publishers, you have to wonder who can. In an interview feature on Joystiq, Moonshot’s Damián Isla said that over the past few years, publishers’ interest in the downloadable console space has “evaporated – probably for pretty good reason”, with investment shifting to mobile and social instead.
