Intel's "Project Offset" Game Cancelled

Illustration for article titled Intels Project Offset Game Cancelled

For years, developers from computing giant Intel had been working on a game, called Project Offset. Note the use of past tense in that sentence.


Intel has cancelled the game and scattered the development team to the winds, releasing the following statement to Big Download:

Intel purchased Offset Software to improve our game development knowledge-base and to further Intel's visual computing technology development expertise, helping the company offer robust products, support, and tools to customers. With the recent changes in our product roadmap, some of the resources and technologies from the acquisition are being re-applied to help support new graphics related projects. Additionally, other Offset Software team members have moved onto other external projects outside the company.


A shame, but then seeing as we'd seen or heard barely anything about the game in five years, it was also to be expected. All we're left with then are memories of meteors blowing shit up.

Project Offset officially shut down at Intel; founders launch Fractiv LLC [Big Download]

You don't understand how much I am fucking MURDERKILLRAGE.


There is not a single fucking fantasy game on the face of the planet I have much interest in at all. It's a genre I have extreme dislike for, primarily because of elves—but nevermind that. Offset was this one thing I was REALLY looking forward to because it seemed fresh and interesting and there were giant monsters and a kickass art style. DAMMIT. I... dammit!

Next they'll probably cancel Rage or Portal 2 or Mass Effect 3 or something.
