Epic is just about awash in money, considering everyone and their grandma licenses Unreal tech these days. I'd be surprised if they let it languish by the wayside.

Well this is somewhat disappointing news, I was really looking forward to playing this on my iPhone and iPad.

Agreed! Who doesn't want to make millions? This game was a guaranteed success.

Some times people lose their perspective I suppose...

I bought both previous games, and to be honest I got bored of both rather quickly. Pretty much a hack and slash game, not much content to it IMO

Well you might be thrilled to learn then that starting earlier this week, there are THREE! THREE Metal Slug games on iOS!

Have fun.

I'm waiting for Donkey Kong and the original Super Mario trilogy. When those are on the iPad, I'll game.

And Sugar Rush

This game is halted, not canceled/stopped. I do see a possible end 2013/early 2014 release for this game. This game was (when demoed) fantastic. Diablo III style gameplay

The team died.

Now a new team, formed off their offspring will take up the cause.

They will die.

Then a new team, formed off their offspring will take up the cause.

It's the Infinity Blade way.

What did you expect from a studio named like this ?

"Can you finish Infinity Blade Dungeons ?"
"No sir, it's Impossible".

First of all, what most of you are missing is IB: Dungeons was being made by a different dev team than the original IB 1 and 2 (Chair for IB and Impossible studios for Dungeons) hence the rather different gameplay. Even storywise the game was supposed to be a "prequel" to the events in the IB universe.

We'll see what happens, I am sure there will be a IB III in any case.

Yep, this is what it sounds like to me too. There is no reason to cancel a cash cow like this unless things were not progressing at the right speed. I would wager it was full of too many bugs, the programmers were being lazy and Epic had enough of it.

Smells like Duke Nukem Forever to me!

Why would Apple step in? They aren't a game developer, and they don't need this title. If Epic decides they want to continue with the game, then they have approximately seven other development houses available to them to get it finished, not to mention the pockets to make it happen. One of those development houses is the one responsible for Infinity Blade 1 and 2 (Chair Entertainment), so they haven't exactly severed all ties they had to the Infinity Blade franchise.

Which is sort of what I was pointing at, afaik Chair is still developing IB III. It's not inconceivable they could step in to finish Dungeons.

As their name, so is it. IMPOSSIBLE

It delayed so long so I nearly forget the existence of Infinity Blade…

Hmm... maybe this should be a lesson for other mobile game developers...

Don't charge $7.99 per download of games with absolutely no replay value.

I bought the first Inifinity Blade title, and never again, because #1 it was stupid, and #2 too expensive.
