The goal of this page is to accurately list games that were intended to be released for the Dreamcast, but never were. There are already many collections of such lists, but they tend to lack citation of source.

There will be a number of categories including: Unreleased games leaked to the internet, Unreleased games with citation (mostly magazines, advertisements, and proof of an in-development version), Unreleased games with no or uncredible proof, and Games whose names changed prior to release (which are often mistaken for unreleased games).

Name Changes

Xleration: This was renamed to "4 Wheel Thunder" after Midway decided to publish the game. Issue 4 of the french Dreamcast magazine "Dreamzone" featured information on Xleration. Also on Page 14, Issue 1 of Official Dreamcast Magazine.

Redline Racer: Was renamed to "Suzuki Alstare Racing". Page 15, Issue 1 of Official Dreamcast Magazine.
