See Scarface 2's Wild Gameplay

The movie only displays the game's early build with enhanced graphics, improved fighting, and lots of swearing in Las Vegas.

The leakers uploaded more footage and screenshots on Elon Musk's social media site, showing the game's early build and engine

Radical Entertainment adapted 2003's Hulk's engine for Scarface 2

This engine was upgraded to run the open-world Prototype games, starting with 2009's Prototype.

Scarface 2 was rumoured to be in development in the late 2000s, but this is the first indication that it was planned before being cancelled in 2008 or 2009.

Scarface's original publisher, Vivendi Games, planned more sequels. Activision merged with Vivendi Games.

In 1995, Vivendi Games purchased Blizzard Entertainment; in 2008, it merged with Activision to form Activision Blizzard, which Microsoft is buying for $70 billion

Scarface 2 and the remainder of the Scarface gaming IP rights were considered to have been lost in the 2008 merger.

Scarface 2's rights were handed to Activision Blizzard, which relinquished several inherited IPs, therefore Universal Studios regained ownership.

Universal's gaming section, Universal Interactive, was acquired by Vivendi in 2004, so Universal, which presently retains the rights, would have to rely on a third-party developer and publisher.
