Arkane Software’s The Crossing is now on hold. Arkane’s Raphale Colantonio tells Joystiq, “We ran into an unexpected financial challenge some months ago and we had to put The Crossing on hold”.1 They speculate that Arkane’s crumbling partnership with EA is the reason for this indefinite delay.
According to Colantonio, Arkane is now working on two other projects - an FPS RPG and an iPhone game - instead. Since Ubisoft owns the rights to the Might & Magic franchise, we’re in shallow waters with speculation as to what “FPS RPG” means at this juncture.
In any case, only another forthcoming Source game from Arkane will save me from a broken heart.
