Harpoon IV Torpedoed

Ubisoft sends word that they've officially cancelled Harpoon IV. Here's the news:
SAN FRANCISCO - November 26, 2003 - Ubisoft(tm), one of the world's largest videogame publishers, today announced that it has officially ceased production on Harpoon IV and has chosen not to release the title.

"Ubisoft is committed to making the best military simulation games possible, and unfortunately, the Harpoon IV project wasn't meeting this goal. In our judgment, the product quality could never reach a level that meets or exceeds consumer expectations," said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing, Ubisoft. "We will never intentionally ship a product that is sure to disappoint our discerning customer base."

While the game will not be finished or published by Ubisoft, discussions are underway to license the source code to a third-party group within the community in order to finish the game. Information regarding this development will be available soon at the game's community website http://harpoon4.ubi.com/US/.

I was looking forward to it a couple fo years ago but I sooo lost interest after seeing screenies. It looks like Janes Fleet Command which (besides having THE cheesiest cutscenes in gaming history) was a pretty decent game...a couple of years ago. Harpoon 4 looked so dated it would have been direct to bargain bin anyway. This is a decision that makes sense if it had been made a year or two ago.
