Before going under back in 2009, GRIN, the Swedish studio behind the likes of Bionic Commando, Wanted: Weapons of Fate and Terminator Salvation had a few future projects up its sleeve, including a Strider reboot for Capcom and a downloadable remake of Streets of Rage for SEGA.
Spanish games site Anait Games unearthed screenshots and a trailer for these various cancelled projects that were apparently in the pipeline at GRIN Barcelona, including a trailer for a mysterious unnamed game that depicts a fella rubbing snow off the surface of a rusty old signpost.
GRIN also continued with its abandoned work on Strider, removing the license and pitching it to Ubisoft, but it regrettably fell through. In addition to GRIN's Strider reboot and the Streets of Rage remake, there was a Silent Hill title in the offing for Konami, a follow-up to Wanted subtitled 'Cult' and a Final Fantasy spin-off named Final Fantasy: Fortress.
Crytek attempted to throw GRIN a lifeline as the studio's fortunes began to slide, but walked away from the potential agreement when the asking price proved a little too spicy. All that's left then are these tantalising images of what could have been, courtesy of Eurogamer. Have a little look at some of them below.
