THE BUZZ: The animation reel for a former Sony employee has revealed footage from the cancelled Getaway 3, and other PlayStation 3 projects.
A former member of Sony Cambridge Studio published an animation reel as t wpart of his Resume. In this reel is footage of The Getaway 3, an unnamed cancelled sci-fi action game from 2011, and a cancelled lifestyle project from 2007. The footage from The Getaway can be found around the 30 second mark.
The Getaway 3 was cancelled back in 2008, after Shuhei Yoshida replaced Phil Harrison as Sony Worldwide Studios boss. The game was in development at Sony London Studio.
EGM’s TAKE: The Getaway was a massive franchise back in the PlayStation 2 days and many fans were sad to hear of the game’s demise in the current-gen. Back in its heyday it was nipping at the heels of genre leader Grand Theft Auto, thanks to its much darker atmosphere and grittier story lines. Sadly we will never know just how well it could have done in the current generation. The lifestyle project mentioned in this reel would have been very interesting to see as well. Games don’t always have to be about shooting things to be interesting, just look at Heavy Rain.
