Trivia:

Cancelled games

There were a number of cancelled successors to the franchise:
  • Turrican 3D was developed by Manfred Trenz for THQ. It was planned to be released in December 1999 for PC and Dreamcast.
  • At the same time, Factor 5 worked at the unofficial (because of missing name rights) successor Thomado for GameCube with a a science-fiction Western scenario. It was cancelled because Nintendo wanted them to concentrate on Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II - Rogue Leader. There exists a one-level demo for Nintendo 64, where development originally started.
  • After they received the Turrican rights back, Factor 5 developed 3D-Turrican for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It was cancelled in 2007 because they could not find a publisher.
  • Protovision developed the unofficial Turrican 3 for Commodore 64, but development stopped in 1998 on request of Factor 5. They did re-brand it to T3 which was ultimately cancelled after a re-release demo was stolen and cracked during a scene party. The preview can be found as bonus material in Hockey Mania.
