Scarface: The World Is Yours is a video game released in 2006 for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and personal computers that are based on the 1983 gangster film of the same name.
The game was developed by Radical Entertainment and was one of many titles that attempted to cash in on the rising popularity of open-world criminal simulations sparked by the success of titles such as the first Mafia and Grand Theft Auto III.
Leaked Footage Reveals Cancelled Scarface Video Game
An unreleased video clip from a sequel that was ultimately scrapped has been making the rounds on the internet, giving fans a sneak peek at what the second outing for Tony Montana in the gaming world would have entailed.
The controversial decision made in The World Is Yours to have Tony continue to live after the events of the original source material will serve as the basis for the narrative of the sequel.
This new game, which was going to be called Scarface: Empire, would have seen Montana flee Miami and set up shop in Las Vegas.
Reportedly, he would have established his newly constructed casino while simultaneously running a drug business in the back and taking out mafia enforcers who were encroaching on his turf. This new game would have been called Scarface: Empire.
Tony may be seen in the video produced by Mafia Game Videos shooting his way through the streets of Las Vegas and avoiding the police on the highway.
There are also numerous animation tests that showcase lighting from a night and day system and different scenarios for a “second chance” function that kicks in with Tony taking one too many shots in the chest. These tests may be found on the test server.
It is also stated in the footage that it was taken on June 6, 2008, which is approximately one year before the release of Prototype.
This comes a little over a month after Mafia Game Videos tweeted and shared a video revealing some concept art from the game’s main character, the Mafia.
It has been stated that these screen photos have been featured on a variety of Art Station pages over the years, but they have failed to attract any notice.
They all depict Radical’s Las Vegas, which was ultimately unable to be released to the public.
It was rumored that Radical Entertainment was making significant progress on Scarface: Empire before becoming a subsidiary of Activision, which caused the development of the game to come to a halt.
Mafia Game Videos’ source claims that the publisher didn’t see a future for the Scarface game series since they were working on too many open-world games at the time.
Outside of a few unique crossovers, Montana hasn’t been seen anywhere else in the gaming world, although the door is definitely still open for it if a developer with a strong sense of nostalgia proposes the idea to the appropriate parties.
