According to reports, its total development costs to date amounted to almost 50 million US dollars, and apparently Warner has scrapped the development entirely.
Surreal Software was quietly closed down earlier this year, and This Is Vegas had been in development limbo for some time, with lots of unofficial delays since its announcement and a release date looking nowhere near.
Apparently Midway spent a massive $43 million on it, with Warner’s bills over the last year taking it up to nearly $50 million. To put this into some context, GTA IV allegedly cost around $100 million, Halo 3 around $55 million and God of War III cost $44 million. Looks like Midway’s investment was very ill-thought.
