Polish site Polygamia is rumouring that CD Projekt’s Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf has been canned.
A thread over on the game’s official forum has drawn a response from a community manager, saying only that, “We will comment on this in official release soon.”
That doesn’t sound especially hopeful.

THQ UK’s just confirmed that reports of the PS3 version of Destroy all Humans: Path of the Furon being canned are only applicable for the US – the game will release for both Xbox 360 and PS3 in Europe.
Both versions have taken a heavy slip: the game was supposed to release next week.
“Destroy all Humans: Path of the Furon will be released on both the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony Playstation 3 formats on February 13th 2009 across Europe,” a rep said this morning.
“Due to the game being shipped earlier in North America on December 2nd, a decision was made to proceed exclusively with the Xbox 360 format in that market.”
Unlucky, American people. You’ll just have to get those importing dollars ready for February.

According to this Kotaku story, EA’s stopped work on C&C-based FPS Tiberium because, essentially, it wasn’t up to scratch.
“EA has suspended work on Tiberium effective immediately,” said Mariam Sughayer, EA spokesperson. “The game was not on track to meet the high quality standards set by the team and by the EA Games Label. A lower quality game is not in the best interest of the consumers and would not succeed in this market.
“This decision will result in some individuals being released. However, EA will make every effort to place talented people on other projects. Eligible employees will receive severance and outplacement support.”

“CivRev was originally a 360/PS3 project and was in development for over a year before the Wii/DS platforms were added, largely because we saw the success of those platforms and a lot of people (including myself) were very excited about them,” said Firaxis programmer Scott Lewis. “All of our assets were originally created with the 360/PS3 in mind. In order to bring them to the Wii, a great deal of work would have to go into making those assets look appropriate on Nintendo’s system. If we had started the project with all four platforms in mind, it is far more likely that we would not have put the Wii version of CivRev on hold.”

The Wii version of Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution has been put “on hold”, publisher 2K has confirmed, leaving room to get Xbox 360 and PS3 SKUs ready for action later this year.
“Development for the Wii version of Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution is currently on hold,” a spokesperson for 2K Games said here. “We are focusing our attention on creating the best possible Civilization experience for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DS platforms.”
