I e-mail one of oddworld inhabbitants asking if Abe would possibly be DLC for all-stars in the future.
Here's what i sent
Are there any plans for abe in playstation all stars. I know there were rumors about him being future DLC but know he is apparently cancelled. I think he would fit right in as an all-star.
Then i got this ReplyPoor Abe. I agree with you, he would be amazing in PlayStation All-Stars, but development on DLC for that has stopped, so there's no chance of that happening. So sad.
It sounds like he was being developed and that the cancelled rumors were true.
You didn't provide any sources to this info.
Whenever I see this stuff my reaction is "what if someone MORE heavily requested is getting in?" People get so focused on who's NOT getting in that they don't think of the numerous other characters who could still stand a chance.
Some theories about what happened here:
- They struggled to develop a full moveset for the guy. We saw from Seth Killian that they wanted to add someone from Katamari but struggled to develop a moveset, and Abe's games don't really allow much for Abe to do in a game like this, so this is possible.
- As suggested elsewhere, Abe could have been developed by Superbot just before Sony cut ties with them, and the transition caused Abe to be lost for one reason or another.
- Oddworld Inhabitants has misintepreted things that have been going on. Chances are, they could have given their full permission, Superbot got to work, the contract ended and development could have moved to SSM without Oddworld being informed of this decision, and maybe due to some crossed wires, they started assuming Abe was a no-go.
- As was also suggested, Oddworld could be pulling a Jaffe, claiming he's been cancelled every time they're asked and then BOOM, March arrives and he's there, surprising everyone.
No, there is nothing good about Abe. Abe is a terrible character and would be a terrible addition to PSASBR.
Says the fan of Lightning.
On-topic: I could just as easily write something with no proof that confirms Crash's inclusion and tell anyone who questions it to ask them himself. Why people are believing this without so much as a screencap (which takes five seconds, btw) is beyond me. Not to mention the fact that Oddworld has denied ever mentioning Abe and PSAS at all (shortly after SuperBot confirmed that the March DLC is still a go), going so far as to delete the tweet about how Abe was cancelled. If that's not an NDA in ation, I don't know what is.
hey, DP's back!
I do more lurking than posting nowadays, but I'm normally still here. It's only when I feel obligated to throw my two cents
at a homeless manthat I post.
