Capcom Cancels Talisman Game

Capcom Senior Director of Strategic Planning Christian Svensson has confirmed today that their video game adaption of Talisman has been cancelled. Anyone could have seen this coming due to a lack of media from the game in such a long time.

Hit the jump for Svensson’s statement.

Rather recently we have finally stopped development completely. After a misfire at the start, the details of which I won’t get into, we evaluated several options for moving the project to new developers, but the costs of moving forward outweighted the potential revenue. I realize this will be disappointing for the fans of the game.

The rights have reverted back to Games Workshop where I hope someone will pick them up and try again. I too still would like to play a Talisman videogame.

It was meant to be an Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC title. Not anymore.
