The PlaySta­tion 4 exclu­sive, Wild, appears to have been can­celed. Spot­ted by VGC, Grubb said on his Giant Bomb series Grubb­snax, that Sheep Stu­dio has stopped work­ing on Wild. This is sev­er­al months after stu­dio head Michel Ancel retired from the game indus­try. Ancel pre­vi­ous­ly worked on games like Beyond Good & Evil and Rayman.

I can con­firm that game is ful­ly done. There is no Wild any­more… Wild is dead,” Grubb explained. He added that he believes Ancel just aban­doned the project, caus­ing it to be shut down. Grubb said “The team that was work­ing on it was look­ing at maybe try­ing to stay togeth­er and work on oth­er projects.”

Grubb went on to say that he does­n’t know exact­ly what hap­pened, but the stu­dio sim­ply stat­ed to him, “We’re not work­ing on Wild any­more, but we do have a lot of tal­ent here, so maybe we can work on some stuff.”

When Ancel spoke of his retire­ment, he men­tioned that devel­op­ment on both wild and Beyond Good & Evil 2 would con­tin­ue with­out his pres­ence. Both of these games were announced years ago and have had no hint at a release date since. Wild was first intro­duced back in 2014, so it’s been sev­en years and it would be safe to say the game has seen a cancelation.
