Ender's Game Project Cancelled

Joystiq has word the planned games based on the Orson Scott Card novel Ender's Game are on indefinite hold. "We have and had an amazing design for the Ender's Game game," Chair Entertainment co-founder Donald Mustard tells them, "[but] one of [parent company] Epic's primary objectives is to create original and unique franchises. I don't know that Ender's Game fits into that strategic objective anymore." When asked if the game was still expected he said: "probably not... Not from us."

Remember all the "Epic hates homosexual" backlash over the last one?

Wonder if ths has anything to do with that.

Actually it was "Orson Scott Card hates homosexuals," mostly because he said he would advocate overthrowing the government if gay marriage is ever legalized. Epic had nothing to do with Shadow Complex beyond it using Unreal Engine 3.

Funny thing about that was how they had Peter David (who couldn't possibly be more liberal and gay-friendly if he tried) write the script for Shadow Complex, which turned out to be suspiciously devoid of any actual references to the book. You'd never guess it from the game but the conflict is supposed to be divided on political party lines, and the villains are the liberals.
