Blizzard Games That Never Were
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 8 comments

During a presentation at the DICE summit in Las Vegas Blizzard representatives revealed a list of games that never made it to release. Providing no specifics about the names on the list, Mike Morhaime used the discontinued titles to illustrate his company's focus on quality and willingness to cancel titles that aren't meeting standards.

Of course, there's Warcraft Adventures, the planned point-and-click adventure game based on the strategy series.

Other games the company killed over the years include:
Games People Play
Crixa
Shattered Nations
Pax Imperia
Nomad
Raiko
Denizen

Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime unveiled this list to illustrate why the company seemingly only develops hit games -- if something isn't shaping up, they're not afraid to cancel it.

We didn't get more than this list of titles. An image of Raiko was shown, a pencil sketch of something looking like Gollum wearing a turtle shell that was full of arrows. And Nomad was illustrated with a screen of two giant zeppelin airships in a cloudy sky.
