Team Ninja was working on two new games back when Tomonobu Itagaki, of Dead or Alive fame, was still part of the studio. His resignation more than two years ago over monetary disputes resulted in Dead or Alive Chronus and Project Progressive being canceled, but the information has only been revealed now by Team Ninja boss Yosuke Hayashi. In a recent interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, he revealed that both projects have been canceled.
Not much progress had been made at the time, with both games in early stages of development. The team is now focusing on Ninja Gaiden 3, Ni-oh and a Dead or Alive game for the 3DS.
