Screenshots and concept art from a cancelled Scarface game have appeared online after more than a decade.
Scarface 2 was a never-released sequel to 2006’s Scarface: The World is Yours from Radical Entertainment, the developer behind The Simpsons: Hit & Run and the Prototype games, and the newly found art reveals a colourful Las Vegas setting.
Mafia Game Videos uploaded the screenshots (spotted by PC Gamer) which show the glorious Las Vegas Strip, Nevada desert, and, of course, a bloody basement or two.
The first Scarface game was well received – IGN said it was great as it did “an absolutely fantastic job of bringing the world of Scarface to gamers” – but the sequel was seemingly cancelled around 2009 for unknown reasons.
Radical was acquired by Activision in 2008 and went on to release the first Prototype game a year later, around the time Scarface 2 was thought to be cancelled.
It later released Prototype 2 in 2012 before being switched to a support studio for Activision, working on games including the original Destiny.
This also isn’t the first time images of one of Radical’s cancelled projects have emerged online, as last year footage emerged of a cancelled Spider-Man game.
