Highlander Games Cut

It turns out there can be only none when it comes to the planned series of Highlander games based on the movies featuring a race of immortals with a penchant for sword fighting. Plans for the series were announced by SC1 in 2004, and the last bit of info on theses games we recall was the launch of a couple of websites in early 2008. IGN has news on the cancellation from Square Enix, who inherited the project when they acquired Eidos, but reasons for the move are not supplied. Thanks Ant.

Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

I remember some Gamestop guy years ago trying to sell me on moving to consoles and this game, which I guess was console only at the time, was one of his big selling points. I remember he called it a guaranteed game of the year or some shit. Amusing.

Anyway I liked the original movie for what it was. I didn't bother buying the bluray for $10 though.

The first one was awesome. How can you dislike a Queen rock opera?!

Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas.  
Go forth, and kill!

Highlander and its sequels were and so fucking gay and lame.

Hey...the original Highlander movie was a great movie!

The sequel movies were crap. But the TV series was actually pretty decent.

As a game...I can't see how they couldn't have come up with something cool for this. So many different sword styles in the world and a chance to move throughout the different time periods in history.

I think this could have been a great game.

eidos only has the cutscenes done and they need assets to actually start making the game.

Deus Ex 3 Dancing with the Stars in 3D - The Pink Tutu Episode 6 - The Untold Story of the Man in the Tutu or Human Revolution for short.

 
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

Maybe it was because the developers had the manners of a goat. And they smelled like a dung-heap! And they had no knowledge whatsoever of the game's potential!

Hey, it would've been a better game than that new Final Fantasy MMO!

Perhaps they didn't realise that it's better to burn out than to fade away?
