People can cancel Project Baku after several years of development

April 25, 2024 by No Comments

People Can Fly, the developer behind Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment, has canceled its co-op action RPG Project Dagger after years in development.

The news broke to investors in early April, but only recently came to light Twitter user MauroNL3.

According to the studio, the game was canceled “as a result of a re-analysis of development plans”. This re-analysis leads to “satisfactory results of the evaluation of the scope and commercial potential” of the game.

With the cancellation of Project Dagger, People Can Fly expects its consolidated financial results for 2023 to decrease by approximately $16.9 million. Its standalone balance is expected to decrease by $19.7 million.

Project Dagger was originally slated to be published by Take-Two Interactive, but when the deal expired in 2022, People Can Fly announced plans to self-publish the game.

Insider Gaming has reached out to People Can Fly for comment on what the project’s cancellation means for employees at the studio. As of publication, no response had been received.
