For gamers eagerly awaiting the release of Project Dagger, developed by People Can Fly, the recent news of its cancellation came as a major disappointment. But what led to this decision by the studio behind titles such as Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgement?

According to a statement released by People Can Fly, the cancellation was the result of a re-evaluation of the game's development plans. This reassessment brought forth "unsatisfactory results of the evaluation of the scope and commercial potential" of Project Dagger. It seems that the studio faced challenges that made them reconsider the viability of the project.

Twitter user MauroNL3 first broke the news about the cancellation, shedding light on the financial impact this decision will have on People Can Fly. The studio estimates that their consolidated financial results for 2023 will see a significant decrease due to the cancellation of Project Dagger.


Originally set to be published by Take-Two Interactive, People Can Fly had announced plans to self-publish the game after parting ways with the publisher in 2022. However, it seems that even this shift was not enough to salvage the development of Project Dagger.

For gamers who were eagerly anticipating Project Dagger, this news comes as a blow. The potential of an immersive co-op action RPG from the creators of beloved titles like Gears of War had sparked excitement in the gaming community. The cancellation serves as a reminder of the challenges faced by developers in the ever-evolving gaming industry.
