* ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'' stated during the ending that the world would have to be saved three times. After ''Viewtiful Joe 2'' came out, Double Trouble and Red Hot Rumble were released to pad out the third game's development. However, Clover Studios was shut down by parent company {{Capcom}} and the game never saw the light of day. However, Joe recently made an appearance in ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom'' and ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', and Creator/PlatinumGames have made a spiritual successor, ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101''. Right now, WordOfGod says "Joe is sleeping" -- a fancy way of saying the series has been PutOnABus.

* ''Metroid: Dread'' was hinted at in the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' series, and since then, every ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' fan has been demanding to know its status or quick to assume any upcoming title will be ''Dread''. With the announcement of ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'', the first thing Nintendo did was state that it was not, in fact, ''Dread'' under another name (''Dread'' was supposed to take place after ''Metroid Fusion'' while ''Other M'' takes place ''before'' it and after ''Super Metroid'' (the cutscene containing a 3D remake of the final battle of the latter game makes this clear)), and were coy that such a game was ever even under development. Later, they claimed that it definitely existed, but had been "shelved indefinitely" during work on ''Other M''. More recent interviews have stated that ''Dread'' exists, without a doubt, but no further details about which studio will work on it, where in the timeline it will fit, or when work on it will resume have been released.

As of 2017, we're still no closer to knowing anything about it; the only new games revealed and/or released since ''Other M'' are [[VideoGame/MetroidPrimeFederationForce a spinoff]] set between ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'' and ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus'', [[VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns a remake]] of ''Metroid II'' in the vein of ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission'', and the equally-enigmatic ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime4''.

** ''VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront III'' was first claimed to be in development by Free Radical Design in ''Computer and Video Games'' magazine in September, 2006 . It took a year and nine months later, from a different magazine, just for the rumor that a Creator/LucasArts employee was in the creation process. Then, nothing for another five months, before Activision Blizzard got a ratings classification from the ''Australian'' Film and Literature Classification (Which got an E10+ equivalent for the Nintendo DS), along with announcements that Free Radical lost the rights to develop the game. Gameplay footage, character renders, models, textures, and pre-alpha footage became available after [=LucasArts=] was shut down. Since then, EA and DICE have rebooted the series with the unrelated ''VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront''.

* ''Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar'' is a computer RPG said to feature 600 hours of gameplay among many other things. The first release date was Fall 1997, when Sir-Tech and Wizardry (the series it took inspiration from) was still around and relevant. After more than 20 years in development, it was finally released!
