Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect ended where it started: Episode 10 Comments
You may remember the Sons of Anarchy game, The Prospect, that was announced just over two years ago as an episodic adventure taking place in the world of the acclaimed FX series. You may even have been one of the few that picked up the first episode of the game when it released a year ago on February 1 for iOS, or possibly purchased the Season Pass to get all ten episodes for a deal.
As it turns out, the only deal that people who shelled out any money to Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect will be receiving is an email from Apple asking if they wish to opt-in for a refund of the game.
After releasing the game and Season Pass in February 2015, the developers went silent for the next half a year. Destructoid's Chris Carter reached out to developer Silverback Games in August of 2015, and was informed that the company was merely a consultant on the game and had no idea what the actual developer, Orpheus Interactive, was up to. The latter company's Sons of Anarchy game site has remained unchanged since the release of the first episode, which is never a good sign for an episodic series.
Now, a full fourteen months after the game was released, Apple is emailing anyone who spent money in their store and informing them that they are entitled to a refund for the game. Everything to do with the game, including Orpheus' company listing on the Apple store, has been removed from the store.
Turns out there was very little prospect for a game with such an ironic title, but it still begs the question of what ever happened to Orpheus Interactive, and how it got this far without any of the major parties involved, such as FOX, stepping in and sorting the mess out.
