Cancelled DICE game to see release 25 years after completion


Too Hardcore for you!

In the early days of DICE, long before it was acquired by EA and turned into the Battlefield factory, there was a sidescrolling action platformer in development for the Genesis and Amiga that got shelved for various reasons. Being published by Psygnosis for a 1994 release and titled Hardcore, the game was a single bug fix away from public release when the decision was made to cancel it.

From out of nowhere, it was announced that Hardcore will finally be getting a release on PS4 and Vita next year. After 25 years of sitting in a warehouse, publisher Strictly Limited Games will be unleashing this lost chapter of DICE's career unto the world. Both physical and digital versions will be available with an "early 2019" release window.

25 years later, DICE's long-lost Mega Drive game will finally see release [Eurogamer]
