Yet, neither developer nor publisher have uttered a peep about Furious 4, despite the fact that it was initially supposed to be out in the first half of 2012. Instead, rumors are circulating that it's been cancelled outright. When asked if Furious 4 is still in development, has been delayed or will be shown in any way at E3 2012, Ubisoft responded with the following statement:

We don't have anything to share at this point in time.

Until someone says something definitive about the fate of the game, the dream of throwing bear traps at drunk Nazis during Oktoberfest remains frustratingly out-of-reach. Kotaku has also reached out to Gearbox for comment and will update this story if the developer has anything to divulge about the status of Furious 4.


The trademarks that Ubisoft held on the game have been abandoned, as can be seen here and here.
