50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is one of those games that you buy not because it's going to be "good," but because it will provide plenty of laughs after you have downed a few drinks. Don't believe me? Then go watch the official trailer.
Back when the news that Activision Blizzard was merging with Vivendi Games was still fresh, quite a few titles were rumored to be getting the axe, including Blood on the Sand. If that doesn't ring any bells, it's probably because you were too busy worrying about the fates of Brütal Legend and Ghostbusters to care about poor ol' 50 Cent.
Now that those same rumors about Blood on the Sand are resurfacing, it's time to set the record straight. According to GamesIndustry.biz, the game is not only going to be finished, but it's "close to completion and on track for release before Christmas."
Good news or bad news? I know some of you utterly loathe Blood on the Sand, but hey, it's not like you're going to be forced to play it or anything.
