Too Human ($65 million)
This 2008 game went well over the original budget that was planned and there were issues with the original developers from Silicon Knights no longer wanting to use the Unreal Engine 3 they started to create the game with while producing the game. This led to a game that didn’t feel complete since it was rushed.
Shenmue ($70 million)
It’s hard to think that a game like Shenmue would hold the title of most expensive game for almost a decade, but it was surprising number for 1999 that provided an actual weather system for a realistic experience. However, it did not have the biggest popularity and it was one of the biggest flops in video game history.
