Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned Cancelled
Open-world adventure of good and evil shut down.
Unfortunate news broke today that Disney Interactive Studios
is canceling Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned
, the promising adventure based on the Pirates franchise. Armada of the Damned told the tale of the strong-willed Captain Sterling who would rise to fame or infamy -- depending on the player's choices. But gamers looking forward to exploring the Pirates universe won't be able to fulfill their swashbuckling ambitions any longer.
IGN received a statement from a Disney Interactive Studios representative, which reads: "Disney Interactive Studios confirms the cancellation of the Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned video game which was scheduled to be released in 2011. As a result of this decision, Disney Interactive Studios completed a restructuring of Propaganda Games
, its Vancouver, BC internal studio, affecting one of the studio's two development teams. The studio is still in active production of TRON: Evolution, the video game, which will be released on December 7, 2010 with additional DLC (downloadable content) support following the game's release."
When we previewed Armada of the Damned
earlier this year, the game looked great and had the potential to be a fun adventure. It's a shame that potential won't be realized at this point in time.
