Vaporware

Video game concept

Any games that were or still are considered vaporware. Usually requires that news about the game pop up repeatedly over several (3-5+) years but nothing tangible appearing.

Alternate names: Development hell, Development limbo

The first video game about Vaporware was released in 1990.

Zero Point Software and Priority Interrupt has published most of these games

See also: not published (for more literal cases of vaporware)
Vaporware that actually do get released should still keep this tag to signify their past as not all unreleased games are vaporware.

Rumors with sufficient evidence, if they keep popping up for say 3-5 years would qualify in some cases (if limited to preproduction planning, renders, and concept art then maybe not, actual in-game content however would). Official announcement and then no release for 1-3 years would also qualify.
