This is a fascinating one. Some footage has leaked of a cancelled Call of Duty game called Roman Wars. It was developed by Vicarious Visions, but was cancelled and never even announced.

Forget WW2. The Holy Roman Empire was the REAL fun. Those guys knew how to have a bloody good barney (literally).

I think a game like this would be cool if they incorporated some sort of siege warfare (though there's something that looks kind of like that with the gate)- that's part of what made games like Total War work. I would guess that if it was strictly player against player, maybe they figured the game wouldn't have been as engaging.
