Cancelled Scarface 2 Is The Bizarre Sequel You'll Never See
Movie tie-in games have practically died at this point, and we're much worse off because of it. The moment studios realised it wasn't profitable to release video games alongside blockbuster films, they pulled the plug. It means we've been cursed us to a Morbius: The Game-less existence.
It's a big shame, but in the time it took for the practice to kick the bucket, we've been given some real oddities - most notably, a tie-in to Scarface that fans absolutely hated. But, as it turns out, there could have been more to hate - as a sequel was once in the works.
What Is The Cancelled Scarface 2?
A new video has been posted on YouTube, which reveals a wealth of details about an unreleased and unfinished sequel to Radical Entertainment's Scarface: The World Is Yours. It's hard to believe the game came out in 2006 and was from the same developer that gave us The Simpsons: Hit & Run.
Supposedly, the screenshots revealed in the video have been hovering around the internet for some time. It's only this latest video that has brought them to light and started a conversation around the game that never was. The video cycles through some concept art and renders for the game, showing off some of the environments that could have appeared.
In the cancelled Scarface 2, you were due to take on the role of Tony Montana - who'd miraculously survived his infamous end. Taking the story to Las Vegas, a vengeful Montana was going to seek out those who'd wronged him. It all sounds like pretty standard mob movie fodder that we imagine would've enraged Al Pacino.
Why Was Scarface 2 Cancelled?
The second Scarface game kicked the bucket around 2009, but the reason for the cancellation was never revealed. Though, it was likely due to a critical lambasting and the fact not a lot of players actually picked the first game up. It was a bizarre choice to make a tie-in game for an older film in the first place.
Things didn't go well for Radical, and these days, the developers are scattered. Much like the long-rumoured Scarface remake, a second game has us asking "why?". Even so, every game launched has its fans, so it's a shame that those few won't be able to play another Scarface game. The era of movie tie-ins is truly over. RIP.
