Looks like Surreal Software’s This is Vegas may have been canceled after Warner purchased the firm from Midway, if sources close to the developer are correct.

Warner Bros. has made a number of layoffs at Monolith Productions, Surreal Software, and Snowblind Studios.

This is Vegas canned? Not a chance, says Warner Bros.
“This is Vegas has not been cancelled,” a WB spokesperson told G4. “The game is currently in production.”
And so, like the nightlife vampires it depicts, This is Vegas is not so easily killed. The wet T-shirted dream lives on, for better or for worse.

According to a report on Action Trip, Midway’s glitz, glamor, and sleaze simulator This is Vegas has probably been canned.
Apparently, GameStop has informed preorderers that the game won’t be making it into their surprisingly eager hands, so that’s probably that.
The cancellation can most likely be attributed to Midway’s recent sale to Warner Bros.
And so passes the front runner in the race to make the dream of virtual wet T-shirt competitions real.

Warner Bros officially owns Midway, along with Mortal Kombat, This Is Vegas and Midway trademarks, which has led some to question whether the Midway brand will continue to exist.
“Midway Games Inc. still exists, and the Midway trademark and games such as Mortal Kombat and This is Vegas and most of the IP library are now owned by Warner Bros,” a Midway spokesperson told Kotaku.
“It will be up to Warner Bros. to determine how they will approach their branding strategy.”
Midway began life as Midway Mfg. Co. in 1958, so it would indeed be strange to see a Warner label on a Mortal Kombat game.

Oh dear. Midway’s confirmed that This is Vegas has moved into next year, Gamespot reports.
“Midway is committed to developing and publishing the best quality products,” said the firm in a statement. “It is important for us to make sure the game was given the development time needed in order to make This is Vegas a triple-A videogame and a must-have for all PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC owners.”
It’ll be at E3, apparently.

Midway’s Las Vegas Gamer’s Day’s now been and gone and there are lots of words on the internet about it. Looks as though nothing terribly dramatic got announced, the most interesting thing in the publisher’s line-up being Epic’s Unreal Tournament III for 360 – albeit without user-generated levels – for release this summer. Here’s what you/we missed:
- Blitz: The League II and casual stuff announced
- No user mods for UTIII 360, impressions
- TNA iMPACT impressions
- Wheelman impressions
- NBA Ballers: Chosen One videos
- Gears of War surprise in UTIII 360, says Rein

This is Vegas, the Midway game that allows you to live out you “Vegas fantasies”, is seen here in trailer form for the first time. Apparently, the ultimate Vegas fantasy is wearing a loud shirt and punching people. Living the dream, right there.

And apparently, Vegas fantasies include “fighting, gambling, driving and partying”. Brilliant. The Midway game, developed by Surreal, allows you to do all these things in a virtual Las Vegas. Sounds absolutely amazing.
“We are thrilled to be unveiling the first-ever videogame experience which allows players to live out their wildest Vegas fantasies,” said Alan Patmore, studio head, Surreal. “Whether it’s partying in the hottest night clubs, racing in underground circuits, testing your luck at the tables or getting into a barroom brawl, This is Vegas has it all.”
Midway’s done an exclusive deal with IGN regarding media, so here you go. The game ships with winter for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
