Sequels For Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock Canceled


For those that were looking forward to finishing the trilogy of Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock it was revealed today that those games will not be happening.

Speaking with Polygon, BBC’s Vice President of Digital Entertainment and Games, Paul Joffe, confirmed that there will not be any future games for Eternity Clock and there are no plans for more projects with the developer, SuperMassive Games.

Paul Joffe on The Eternity Clock:

“We will not be releasing any further Eternity Clock games, nor did any other go into production. We also have no current work with Supermassive. We do have Doctor Who games in the pipeline and we will be announcing these in due course.”

Paul Joffe on future BBC games games:

“We’re determined to focus on mobile, console didn’t fit into the long term strategic vision in cases where BBC Worldwide would publish. We do continue to work with licensees closely on console such as our partnership with Microsoft on Forza.”

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock was released on PS3 to fairly poor reviews, you can read Josh’s review here.
