People who pre-ordered This is Vegas from GameStop in hot anticipation for some wicked blackjack action reportedly received calls from the retailer within the last week or so. The representatives told pre-orderers that This is Vegas was cancelled and then probably tried to advise the people in question to shift their reserve to some other game that won’t hit for another decade. These supposed calls led to a belief that the Midway-developed property was toast.
This is not true. Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment, the proud new owner of Midway Games, recently told G4TV that the game is still in production.
“This is Vegas has no been cancelled,” a WBIE spokesperson said. “The game is currently in production.”
That’s it, folks. No other information was given, which isn’t unusual. We haven’t heard anything of substance about This is Vegas in a long, long time.
