Gore Verbinski - the acclaimed director of Pirates of the Caribbean - was due to release a Kinect title this year for XBLA, in conjunction with Blind Wink. The game was to be called Matter.
And now it's dead.
"Microsoft Studios is no longer pursuing this title," a Microsoft rep told Joystiq. "We have no further details to share at this time."
A little digging by Superannuation revealed that a number of Blind Wink staffers left the studio in the later months of last year, with a couple of anonymous NeoGAF posters testifying to alleged development woes.
