Project Milo cancelled?

Sources claim Kinect game has been killed off

Title first seen at Kinect's initial unveiling said to have been given chop.

Project Milo, the Kinect game first seen at the motion-sensing camera’s original unveiling at E3 2009, has been cancelled according to sources.

Someone “close to the situation” has told Eurogamer that the title, which simulates a relationship between gamers and a boy called Milo, was on the rocks. Staff at Lionhead, the developer behind the game, have been moved onto new projects, said to include a Fable-themed Kinect title.

Peter Molyneux, the man behind the title, had been bullish about Milo’s success despite many failing to understand its purpose and the game drawing plenty of bemused looks when played by hacks at E3 last year.

There’s no official line as yet from Lionhead or Microsoft, so stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages for the latest.
