Anybody remember this game, that was officially "leaked" by Ubisoft themselves by hacking the Ubisoft San Francisco offices in Watch Dogs 2?
Former Ubisoft Director Alex Hutchinson just did a tweet that suggests that the game has been cancelled:
RIP Pioneer. 😭 https://t.co/YP8LK1s6fX— Alex Hutchinson (@BangBangClick) January 15, 2019
When asked if the game was super dead, he replied with a crying emoji.
Kotaku's Jason Schreier previously reported in late 2016 that the game was real, but was having development problems and might not be announced at all. Jason's sources told him that the game was supposed to be announced in 2017, but that that wasn't happening anymore and that the game was going to be retooled.
Alex Hutchinson was likely director on the project, because he left Ubisoft in April 2017, just months after Jason Schrier reported that the game was having issues, and has since opened his own studio, Typhoon Studios, which is developing another sci-fi game called Journey to the Savage Planet, which was announced at the 2018 Game Awards.Last edited by shikamaru317 - on 16 January 2019
