Rumor has it that another Factor 5 project has been canceled, possibly a Superman game that was being handled by White Harvest LLC. Assets and projects were transferred from Factor 5 to the new company (as you may remember from that ex-employee lawsuit), but apparently the title, which was in the works for Wii, is no longer in production. It was canceled because the publisher didn’t have a ton of faith in the game. The project started development in February and is said to have involved converting a large open world title. While we don’t know what type of game it was for sure, there is a claim going around that it was a Superman project.

Interestingly, the same rumor source says that White Harvest LLC is still at work on a different Wii title. Factor 5 CEO Achim Moller listed that there were multiple Wii projects in development on his LinkedIn profile, but it’s unclear if that includes the canceled title. If we’re lucky, we may (or may not) receive some news at gamescon. And, while the rumored source has been correct with a number of unconfirmed reports in the past, this information should remain as speculation for now.
