This is Vegas Cancelled, Surreal Closed?

Open-world debauchery sim This is Vegas is cancelled, reports Computer and Video Games, saying this news comes from "a cast iron source close to the project," though they have not gotten a confirmation of this from WBIE. They also say that the game's developer, Surreal Software, which suffered layoffs in January, was "stealthily closed" earlier this year, with its staff split up between Monolith and Snowblind. They say the game, which Warner acquired in the Midway fire sale, lives up well to the old "Lost Wages Nevada" joke, as the production burned through $50 million before being axed. This news comes just a year after WBIE denied previous rumors that the game was shelved. Thanks joao.
