Ubisoft today announced that it has officially ceased production on Harpoon IV and has chosen not to release the title.

"We will never intentionally ship a product that is sure to disappoint our discerning customer base." While the game will not be finished or published by Ubisoft, discussions are underway to license the source code to a third-party group within the community in order to finish the game. Information regarding this development will be available soon at the game's community website.
