The Voyage of the Dawn Treader Video Game Has Been Cancelled!

Yep it’s true! For the past few weeks, there had been no word of a Dawn Treader video game of any kind. Even at the E3 Expo last month (which is a HUGE convention for video games) nothing was revealed, not even a mention of the game let alone a preview.

The last news we had heard on it was that Nihilistic Software was developing the Dawn Treader game, but it was based on the old leaked script (including the Lady of the Green Kirtle as the likely final boss you had to defeat).

NarniaWebber icarus contacted Nihilistic inquiring about the game and received a reply that the game has indeed been cancelled.

As to why the game was cancelled, Nihilistic was working on the game with Disney Interactive but when Disney left the series, the game was cancelled immediately. Because Fox has a different video game publishing strategy than Disney, it was decided not to continue on with it. icarus was also told that the termination of the game was very amicable and both sides were happy with how everything was resolved.

    Could we "Contact Narniaweb" and try to get something started?

  3. Well this is not that bad because I never played the games really but I do like the fact that u kinda feel like your in Narnia while your playing it. I'm a little dissapointed but still ok

    but will they ever do it or does this mean it will never come out? i had the one for LWW and PC and i wanted the VDT too

  5. Not Of This World says:

    Wait! I'v got it!!!! Narnia Battlefront! If you've ever played Star Wars Battlefront, you'll know how fun that game is. And if we could get to come over to Narnia (not just Narnia, other movies too:) think of how great that game will be!!!!!!

    I'm bummed too. I have LWW and Prince Caspian for my PS2 and enjoyed both. I even have a BBC version board game of the original LWW film. I was really looking forward to this video game.

    Well, well, well….video games made out of films are almost never worth the money.

  19. I dunno if I have commented this or not. If so, I'll just post again. But yes, I am SO VERY upset that as far as we all know at this moment, there isn't going to be a Voyage of the Dawn Treader video game. What is questioning me is maybe just IF we get lucky, will they make a game eventually? I mean, LWW and PC were great in my opinion.. made by Disney or not. That I cared less about. But there are PLENTY of video game making companies I am sure could make the game.. or maybe if 20th Century Fox can give some thought of the idea they could make it themselves. Blah. Either way, I really do hope one is made. I've always LOVED to play games that are made after movies I love. Such as Harry Potter, Shrek, Toy Story, Resident Evil, and of course, Narnia! 🙂
