First person RPG Hellraid has not been scrapped, its developer Techland has asserted.

The studio last month said that the game “in its current shape and form, is not meeting our own expectations for this project” and that “we decided the best course of action would be to send it back to the drawing board and invent our dark fantasy title anew”.

However, Techland CEO Pawel Marchewka has now told Eurogamer that this is not correct and that the studio is instead merely concentrating on Dying Light following the game’s huge success.

"Right now we want to concentrate on Dying Light,” he said, adding that the zombie game now has 4.5m unique users. “We wanted to be fair with the fans so we wanted to send a clear message, especially as a lot of the people were expecting new things coming from Hellraid at E3 and Gamescom. We decided to take the pressure away."
