reports it has a "cast iron source" claiming This is Vegas
has finally been buried out in the desert somewhere. The title was under development at Surreal Software for Midway before the publisher folded
. The property was then scooped up by Warner Bros. Interactive
, but apparently met its (inevitable) conclusion when the developer was quietly shut down in June.
The site's source estimates Midway spent around $43 million on the project before it was sold to WB, elaborating, "The title was on the schedule for release late last year - but still needed another eight months to a year to finish with a studio burn rate of $250,000 per month."
We've contacted WBIE for confirmation that This is Vegas
really has played its last card and busted out.
