'Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock' planned sequels cancelled by BBC

By and Matthew Reynolds
Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock's planned sequels have been cancelled by BBC Worldwide.

Originally planned as a trilogy of releases, executive vice president of digital entertainment and games Robert Nashak revealed that the Eternity Clock series has been put on hold.

"Currently we're not working on a sequel, to be honest," Nashak told Digital Spy at the Games Developer Conference.

"We're keeping it as an option moving forward, but we want to see where with Doctor Who we can reach the fans best.

"On console is interesting, because console fans really love the game, but the expectations are for a lot of the development spent on console," he added.

"So we're trying to figure out what is the best route for reaching Doctor Who fans with really, really great content."

Nashak made sure not to rule out returning to The Eternity Clock with a sequel down the road, but it is not something that the BBC is actively pursuing.

"We love the storyline we developed there, we love the feel of that game, and so we're definitely thinking about it for the future, but there is nothing in the plans right now," he said.



It isn't the first Doctor Who game series to be prematurely shelved by the BBC, with the second season of The Adventure Games cancelled after its first episode.

Released on PS3, Vita and PC, Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock was notably buggy at launch, with scripting issues that often forced players to restart levels or shut down the entire console before being able to progress.

Developer Supermassive Games is currently working on the PS3 game Until Dawn and an unannounced next-generation title.

The BBC announced that this week it will be offering Doctor Who themed worlds and items in PlayStation Home in honour of the show's 50th anniversary.
