EA Was Working On Sim City For Wii U But Canceled It

Well it turns out that EA was previously working on a Sim City title for the Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but decided to cancel all versions. It’s not readily apparent as to why the game was canceled, but EA obviously decided it wasn’t fit for purpose so cancelled it.

resident_evil_revelations_2_xbox_small

We heard rumours a few months back that Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is in development when a Russian site began listing the title for a number of platforms. Things have taken a step further today as the box-art for the game was hosted on xbox.com. The game was listed for PlayStation 4, Xbox, One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Here’s some rumoured information about the story.

There are three returning characters. Two female and one male. Two haven’t been seen in over a decade and one has never had an “in-game” appearance. Guess away. That’s more than enough.”
“Regarding the one who doesn’t appear in-game, I should be a little more specific(because I’m sure someone will call me a liar for being too general). They are mentioned in games but are a background character with no “active” appearance yet. It’s not someone from the movies/comics.”
