The Los Angeles Times reported in 2009 that Electronic Arts' Visceral Games studio had the game in development.[4] In 2011 and 2012 then-former Visceral Games artists released some game artwork on their websites, and gaming websites reported that the game had been canceled in 2009.[5][6]


The game is a "re-imagining" of Jack the Ripper who instead of murdering prostitutes, will be battling the demons of the night who dwell on the streets of London.
