Blizzard Entertainment has cancelled a project after it was in development for two years.

Overwatch

Overwatch

Game develoepr David Gibson - a senior animator for 'Overwatch' - announced his depature from the company this week, and it seems a mysterious title he started work on in July 2017 will never see the light of day.

He tweeted on Wednesday (05.06.19): "Well, today is my last day at Blizzard.

"Unfortunately you'll never see what we made over the past 2 years - that's gamedev, but we'll always have Overwatch. :)

"I get 6 weeks off (I need it) until my next gig starts, info soon. (sic)"

Although no further details are available about the seemingly abandoned project, it appears this situation isn't out of the ordinary for the company.

Blizzard' executive producer Allen Adham recently revealed that around 50% of the studio's titles get cancelled before release, and suggested that although it can be a "horror show" behind the scenes, self editing means they retain a "consistent" output.

He told Game Informer: "The truth is, behind the curtain, it's a horror show. But most people outside of Blizzard don't realize around half of our titles don't see the light of day.

"So, people who think we're a consistent company, we're only consistent in that we only release the really amazing games."
