Not like I really care. Never played the Dungeon Defenders game.

But if anyone does care, this news is sad.

I hadn't heard the official cancellation news until your post but I had heard it was in trouble.  Some of the games already released should have been cancelled.

Jeez, don't just roll over people.

Anyways, I am contacting some community people at Trendy to see what is up. Hopefully, I will get a response and shoot it back here sometime soon-ish.

I did my little sleuthing around and talked to a rep on the Trendy forums. Here is the follow up conversation (in its entirety),

  2. When can you share any specifics of Trendy's plans for future VITA support?

Thanks for your time! :-)


Hi there!


Unfortunately, I do not have the specific details of why we canceled other than that we are using the time and resources on other pursuits. I can't really talk about our future plans at this time. I wish I could be more helpful!


Sincerely,

Seeing as how he did not add much to the original statement and I could not really get any more specific on my questions, I did not really feel the need to pressure any more answers out of him. Also, I am not a journalist. I do this for my own interest as a VITA owner who casually writes stuff on these forums, sorry to those who wanted more.

But, this probably sucks for those that wanted to experience the game on a portable or wanted something not seen on VITA. We shall see if Trendy has any future plans which call for developing new VITA games.
