Rumor: 50 Cent Sequel Died Tryin'

Rumblings around the internet are now indicating that 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is the latest game to get the axe as a result of Activision Blizzard’s purchase of Sierra. This was of course the sequel to the atrocious, yet successful 50 Cent: Bulletproof, which would have had ol’ Fiddy traveling to the Middle East for some hackneyed reason. The sequel actually looked like it was shaping up to be a very different affair from its predecessor, but Activision probably realized that the stench of the first game — which has been listed on numerous “Worst Games of All Time” lists — wouldn’t wash off easy. And still no word on the fate of the Ghostbusters game, which is probably the main project from Sierra that most people are curious about.

UPDATE: Aaaaaand, rumor squashed. Apparently the game is close to being finished and is still set to be released this winter. Damn you, internet rumor mill!

Im glad they cut this suck game and its successors, hopefully it doesn’t phail like 50 did, and maybe it will manage to stay dead.

PS:no one gives a about a ghost busters game.

Thank god.

On another note…I sent a news tip, one was used, then accidentally sent a bad one, then sent a recent one. I wonder what happened to it….

Wow, this is…old news. All the games that were axed from Activision-Blizzard survived the cut. Including ol’ Fiddy here.
