A three-volume hardback pictorial history of Rockstar Games’ output has been cancelled, the book’s prospective publisher has confirmed.

German publisher Steidl had put an £310 RRP on the collection, though last week the group told Develop that a release date had not yet been confirmed.

Yet the publisher has since told Wired that the listing was a internal error, and has been removed.

The incomplete book’s editor, Eva Prinz, is now said to be undertaking a completely new project about an as-yet unnamed British developer.

The Rockstar Games luxury set includes three books in a slipcase that was to celebrate the "unprecedented production values, style and depth with a dizzying range of techniques and media" exercised in the making of games like Grand Theft Auto, Manhunt, Bully, Red Dead and many others.
