Status Cancelled

Hardcore is a cancelled 1994 video game developed by DICE/Digital Illusions and published by Psygnosis that was scheduled for release in November 1994 (copyright date says 1995) on Amiga, Sega Genesis and Sega CD. The game appears to be a typical run-and-gun platformer with similarities to the Turrican series. The Genesis port was nearly finished when Psygnosis cancelled all its Genesis/Mega Drive titles, including Hardcore, Bill's Tomato Game, ResQ, Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame, Shadow of the Beast III and Blood Money among others.

Years later, a video of a prototype of the Genesis version has surfaced on YouTube, but a ROM has yet to be dumped, and nothing has resurfaced of the Amiga or Sega CD ports.

It can't just be a coincidence that the only Contra game on Genesis was called Contra Hard Corps
