Project Milo Cancelled???

“[Milo] is a technology demo that continues to exist, but right now it’s not a game that we’re planning to bring to market.”

That’s what Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg told Australian TV show Good Game in July concerning and don’t forget that ‘Milo’ was one of the highlights during Microsoft’s press release at E3.

But then Peter Moleneux said to Eurogamer last month concerning the creation of Project Milo, a simulated relationship between a young boy named Milo and the player…

“I wouldn’t be working on it if I didn’t hope that to be true, yes.”

Then more recently, it looks as though Project Milo still has the go ahead. This time, according to Gamespot, Mr Greenberg recanted his comment previous comment and updated via Twitter, the following…

“Project Milo absolutely continues in development at Lionhead Studios, it is just not a product we plan to bring to market this holiday,” he said. “The team at Lionhead Studios has always been a center of innovation and will continue to deliver against that charter.”

But now Milo has been placed on the back burner for the foreseeable future. The reason this time is that, as reported by Eurogamer as of today, Project Milo has been officially cancelled due to the powers that be at Lionhead currently ushering 19 contractors who were working on the project to work on another project revolving around a Fable/Kinect game. So at the very least, avid Xbox gamers can smile about something.

We’ve included a video of the tech demo showing Project Milo below for you to have a look at.

So won’t it or will it ever be available to the masses? Or is this all just a conspiracy between Peter Moleneux and Aaron Greenberg for some big marketing scheme?? Right now we’re not too sure but we’ll keep you updated.
