"After a much extended development period, Heist has been terminated as a project and removed from our release schedule," Codemasters told .
"Codemasters is focusing its future portfolio on high quality titles that will, in the majority, be developed and produced by our internal studios." Heist was set for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC with players taking the role of bank robbers looking for the big score.
