Nicolas Doucet, a producer and art director at Sony Computer Entertainment's London Studio, has suggested that PS3 titles The Getaway and Eight Days have not been completely axed but instead "just put to one side".
The title's had been presumed cancelled after Sony said in June 2008 that production of both games would "cease immediately due to the redistribution of resources and budget". At the time, a Sony UK representative assured CVG that both titles had been "completely cancelled" and wouldn't be resurrected at a later date.
"I would not say they have been abandoned, just put to one side," Doucet, who's currently wrapping up work on EyePet, told GameKult (via GameSpot). "The studio just wanted to focus on its strengths, EyeToy and SingStar. Given the potential of EyePet, priorities have been changed, but the other projects aren't dead yet."
Doucet added that "much work had been done" on the titles. "I think they were just over halfway through. They had a plan, everything was ready... Most importantly, The Getaway and Eight Days are still there."
