That Gore Verbinski Kinect game got canceled

Who was making what now?

Hey remember when Microsoft announced during their E3 2012 conference that they teamed up with Gore Verbinski to make a Kinect game called Matter? Anyone? No? Yeah, well it's been canceled.

"Microsoft Studios is no longer pursuing this title," a company Microsoft representative told Joystiq. "We have no further details to share at this time."

Microsoft teamed up with the Pirates of the Caribbean movie director to make a game about a Portal 2 Core fighting future flying boxes with arms. Or something. I don't know. The trailer was weird then, and it's still weird now.

It's odd a Kinect game was canceled. I mean, I thought the Kinect was supposed to be the future of gaming! It's almost as if the Kinect doesn't ... Matter anymore.
