Just days before E3 2016 kicked in, Lilith Ltd., the developers behind the then upcoming survival horror game, Allison Road, revealed on Twitter than the game had been cancelled, with a statement coming a little later-on. That statement has now arrived, and it brings more questions than answers about the game’s cancellation.
Lillith has blamed the cancellation of Allison Road on a split with publishing partner Team 17 saying:
“After a long consideration between Team17 and ourselves, we have reached a mutual agreement to end our collaboration on publishing Allison Road under Team17’s Games label.”
“Sometimes things pan out differently than expected as game development and publishing have so many layers of complexity… We’d like to especially thank everyone for their support through-out, it has and will always be appreciated.”
So what does that mean for the future of Allison Road? What were the reasons for the split? Did Team 17 want to make it a little more family friendly? Will Lilith head to Kickstarter to continue the game’s campaign? Or is that it for the game all together?
So many questions, so little answers.
Team 17 originally picked up Allison Road half way through the game’s Kickstarter campaign offering to publish the title. The campaign was then cancelled, and things remained quiet ever since. Of course, until now.
