"technology demo" with no retail release plans.
That's what Xbox boss Aaron Greenberg says, adding Milo is "safe and sound" back in Lionhead headquarters. It's "not a game" in the works.
"Project Milo is something that is in ongoing development at Lionhead Studios,” was Microsoft's response when asked why Milo the virtual boy wasn't at E3 2010, reports . It's been widely thought of as a serious project from Lionhead Studios.
Apparently not though as it was just to showcase Project Natal? "Milo, he’s safe and sound back in England. No... the Milo Project is something that Lionhead Studios in their labs had developed. Last year we unveiled the Project Natal technology, we showed a bunch of technology demos as part of that," Greenberg told .
Milo "is a technology demo that continues to exist, but right now it’s not a game that we’re planning to bring to market.” Did Lionhead and Peter Molyneux overstretch the capability of Kinect when talking about Milo & Kate? It looked pretty darn revolutionary.
Lionhead "cannot comment on rumour and speculation" a spokesperson told . This will be quite a blow to Kinect as one of its truly remarkable flagship titles is, in fact, nonexistent. Can the thinking behind Milo benefit other games then?
