If you’re waiting for a follow up to Doctor Who‘s last video game outing, now may be a good time to consolidate your hopes back into your hope jar. Polygon has gotten official word from the BBC that the last two Doctor Who games set for development have been canceled. Supermassive Games has instead shifted their focus toward their survival horror title Until Dawn.
Originally announced as the first of a trilogy, Eternity Clock hit the scene last year on PS3, PlayStation Vita, and PC, and was welcomed by a hailstorm of harsh criticism. Many expressed distaste for the game, claiming it was inept from a technical standpoint while others felt it didn’t capture the essence of the show properly. I’m afraid a majority of these criticisms were accurate, but to be fair capturing the spirit of Doctor Who within any expanded universe isn’t what I’d consider easy. As much as I’d love a Doctor Who game, perhaps it’s best that we left the Time Lord to his television series.
