Trivia

Cancelled PlayStation 2 version

A heavily reworked PS2 port named AquaNox: The Angel's Tear was finished, but never released. According to Alexander Jorias, a few weeks before the planned release, all but five people were fired because of JoWooD's financial problems. When JoWooD stopped paying the remaining developers altogether, Massive refused to give the product to their publisher because they did not want to lose their last bargaining chip in case JoWooD had to go into administration. Of course this led to drama which escalated in JoWooD's allegation that Massive actively sabotaged the game by programming in bugs. Ultimately this lead to the complete closure of Massive and the cancellation of the finished game. Unsourced rumours also say that the game fell through Sony's quality assurance test.
