It happens, plus you can't be expected to do everything. More info, from wiki.
The story revolves around Owen MacLeod, ancestor to both Connor MacLeod and Duncan MacLeod. It begins over two thousand years ago. And similar to other Highlander films and media, the story spans several timelines including Ancient Gaul, Pompeii, and finally modern-day New York City.
Owen is captured and enslaved by Romans who force him to compete as a gladiator. During this time, Owen dies only to come back to life. Methos, the oldest living Immortal, approaches Owen to be his mentor. He teaches Owen about The Game and how he and other immortals can only be slain by beheading.
As with other Immortal MacLeod's, Owen is pursued throughout his life by an arch-nemesis. This enemy proves to be extremely powerful, one that Owen is unable to defeat. Owen learns of a magical stone, fragments of which are scattered all over the world. Throughout the game, Owen embarks upon a quest to recover these fragments and restore the stone in an attempt to gain the power to overcome his foe
Yep it was a pretty suprising to check out. You had your screen shots, your trailer and overall nice looking game. So one wonders if it wasn't strong enough to compete with other games in the same genre as to why it was canceled.
Although story was likely going to be !@#$ anyways and doesn't help that no one even knows WTF the Highlander is these days, so that doesn't help with sales.
