Starcraft: Ghost

You knew this one was on here, right? Starcraft: Ghost was another foray by Blizzard into uncharted territory - a third-person shooter. The game featured Nova, a Terran Ghost operative who specialized in psychic espionage. Announced in 2002, Ghost had a huge presence on the floor at E3 2005. But in March 2006, the company confirmed that the title was on indefinite hold while the company looked into the possibility of moving the game to the seventh-generation consoles (PS3/360). Since then there have been many statements about the game, and many have contradicted each other. However, no cancellation was ever confirmed, and the game began to appear on many lists of "vaporware." Finally in 2014, Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime confirmed the cancellation when speaking about the cancellation of another Blizzard title, Project Titan, saying, "It was hard when we canceled Warcraft Adventures. It was hard when we canceled StarCraft Ghost. But it has always resulted in better-quality work."
