Milo not coming this holiday season

There is some talk going around lately about the golden “game” for Kinect — Milo.  Rumors are spreading back and forth that the game is simply a tech demo and will never reach retailers while others are claiming that it will be here… at some point.  Considering the reception last year to the E3 video (although clearly edited), it had many people excited.  And yet, a year has passed and no one has seen the virtual boy again.

According to Aaron Greenberg when asked about the status of Milo (rather, Milo & Kate), “Obviously, that’s a tech demo — and technology — that continues to exist, but right now it’s not a game that we’re planning to bring to market”.

Obviously, rage ensued.

But Sam Van Tilburgh of Lionhead Studios tweeted the above picture showing off the Project Milo team, which has about 50 people working on it.  A team that size shouldn’t be simply working on a tech demo.    While Tillburgh couldn’t make any official comments to, Greenberg did release another statement saying, “Project Milo absolutely continues in development at Lionhead Studios, it is just not a product that we plan to bring to market this holiday.”

Sounds like a lot of questionable questions need answered here.  Why we can’t simply just say what it is and what it isn’t without being super mysterious is beyond me.  While it’s future is unsure, with that big of a team working on it and even Molyneux mentioning it last week, one would think it would eventually be released.
