When can I pick up my canceled game?

I could not beleive this story the first time i heard it, and I thought I should share it with you.

According to this article I found on gamerevolution.com, the creators of the game “Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising”, Perpetual Entertainment, made the announcement for the cancellation of this game on Oct. 9th.  And by doing this they put the game on “Indefinite hold” (or canceled) due to prolonged development and realigned studio goals.  And exactly a week after its cancellation, a website named the Consumerist reported on Oct.16th that Gamestop and EB Games were still taking preorders on this game.

Until next time my friends, this is B4 signing off.
Take care,
B4
