Frame City Killer was notably absent from this year's E3, and Namco has now officially stated that the game is no longer in development. After numerous delays and criticism from the online gaming community, Namco posted the news on the Namco Channel:

"We are sorry to say that we have decided that Frame City - the Xbox 360 game which our company had planned for a spring 2006 release - will not be released," read the statement. "Our apologies to everyone who was looking forward to the game's release."

This isn't the end of Namco games on the Xbox 360 though. Ridge Race 6 is of course already available for the system, and Namco has stated that a new RPG and further Xbox 360 titles are in development.
