Dishonored developer Arkane has never revealed much about long lost project The Crossing, but Internet sleuths have come to the rescue.

The Crossing is the focus of the latest episode of ValveTime‘s Database series.

The episode does an excellent job of rounding up publicly available material from before and after The Crossing’s 2009 cancellation, but it also claims to showcase new materials obtained through unnamed sources.

It’s a fascinating look at an ambitious project that was clearly well ahead of its time, and fell victim to that very fact.

After The Crossing was cancelled Arkane did jobbing work on the cancelled LMNO as well as Call of Duty: World at War and BioShock 2.

In August 2010 it was acquired by Bethesda parent Zenimax, and was free to turn its attention to Dishonored, for which we’re all pretty grateful.
