AionGuard may not ring a bell, but that’s quite alright considering the game was announced in January 2009, then never mentioned again. And it will most likely continue not to be mentioned, as developer Avalanche revealed today the game has been shelved due to licensing problems.
“Aionguard it… it took a strange direction. We attached a licence to it and changed the whole game,” Avalanche Studios CEO Christofer Sundberg told Develop.
“We’ll continue to talk to publishers about it and hopefully one day we’ll work on it again,” he added. “We’ll see what happens with it.”
Avalanche Studios is currently finalizing work on Just Cause 2, which is due in March.
