Chris Senn, one of the original members of the Sonic X-treme team, has cancelled “Project S,” a community created version of the cancelled Sega Saturn title. Senn has released a statement on his forum regarding the cessation of “Project S:”
Now the saga of Sonic X-treme arrives at a new crossroad. As of January 12, 2010, it is with a heavy heart I announce that Project-S is officially canceled.
Many people worked very hard throughout the project’s three year and three month life cycle. Making any product is extremely difficult, and Project-S was no exception. Working for free and online with a wide range of experience, skillsets, availability, and dedication just didn’t work out for the team responsible for Project-S. The hope is that the successes the team earned along the way are complimented by lessons learned that, unfortunately, led to our collective inability to reach a public release.
We appreciate how patient our fans have been, and how much they have supported our efforts. Although we can’t provide you with a playable game, we would like to see how much interest there is in the materials we did create. If you would like, please vote for what you would most like shared from Project-S. Click here to vote.
Thanks for your support. Though this has been hard for all of us, we are thankful for what we learned and the new friendships we’ve made.
Let’s welcome a new decade full of possibilities, and take positivity from this experience to become happier, more successful people!
On behalf of the Project-S team,
-Christian G. Senn
Project-S General Manager
Followers of the project can vote on what the would like to see released to the public. Since there has been no media whatsoever in the three years that “Project S” has been in development, it will be interesting to finally see what the team had come up with. The forum has been littered with fans asking for “progress” for years, so those folks will finally get some answers.
