Warrior's Lair, a dungeon crawler for PS3 and Vita, has been cancelled by Sony.
The platform holder confirmed the news in a statement to IGN today. "Sony Computer Entertainment can confirm that Warrior's Lair for PS Vita is no longer in development," a Sony representative commented.
"We apologize to those who pre-ordered the title and ask that they contact their retailer directly to cancel their pre-sale."
The game, originally titled Ruin, was first unveiled at E3 2011 and was expected to become a key title for Vita. Idol Minds was its original developer before the project was moved to Sony San Diego in early 2012. The game was suspected to have been cancelled when it no-showed E3 2012. There was obviously no sign of it at E3 2013 either - for reasons now clear.
The Sony rep went on to assure Vita owners that the system's lineup "remains strong with more than 85 titles scheduled to launch for the system by the end of 2013".
