50 Cent Video Game Release May Be Canceled
50 Cent leaves no business stone unturned. The rapper/actor's video game '50 Cent: Blood on the Sand' may be in danger of being scrapped due to a merger between video game makers Activision and Vivendi.
Rumor has it that the game may not come out because of an over-saturation of shooting games. Activision spoke about the merger in a statement released to gaming site kotaku.com. "We have a policy of not commenting on rumors," said a company representative. "I can tell you that we announced back in July that we are retaining only those franchises that are a strong fit with our long-term strategy."
This could mean trouble for 50's game because it may not fit in with Activision's criteria. "We will not publish other titles that previously were part of the Vivendi Games portfolio and are currently reviewing our options regarding these titles," the representative explained.
The video game is a follow up to 2005's '50 Cent: Bulletproof' and features 50 plus his G-Unit counterparts. The group shoot their way out of an un-named Middle Eastern Country they are stranded in following a concert. If released, the game will be available for both X-Box 360 and Playstation 3. The rapper can currently be seen alongside Academy Award winning actors Al Pacino and Robert De Niro in the new flick 'Righteous Kill.'
