50 Cent sequel not cancelled, despite reports
Swordfish Studios still hard at work on game
Sources close to Swordfish Studios have told GamesIndustry.biz that 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand has not been cancelled, despite internet rumours.
Blog Kotaku reported today that the sequel to the best-selling game has been shelved, and that the UK studio behind the title is to be sold off.
While new owner Activision Blizzard is currently considering divesting a number of studios it picked up when it merged with Vivendi Games, the videogame is close to completion and on track for release before Christmas.
A source said that the team is currently bug fixing and working long hours to finalise the title, and the studio is confident of a secure future in the industry.
