Wasn't Judgement Day triggered by research on the arm of the T-800 (from the first movie), which got destroyed at the end of 2?
Not to mention that Miles Dyson, the man who is the one that created SkyNet, sacrifices himself in order to stop the future from happening. There are no remaining files, there is no evidence, there are no remains, and the man who spearheaded the project is dead.

Sure someone else could (and probably would) come along to make their own version of SkyNet in the future, but that would still be far different from the one in the movies. The fact of the matter is that T3 really reached to make itself viable as a story.

Terminator 3 is even less canon than Alien 3 as far as I'm concerned, even though it's supposedly a better made film.

i heard cameron didn't do that many future scenes due to technology and/or budget limits. i would have liked to see him do more with that. since that's not possible anymore, i would love to see a good game that's set in t1's future.

What future? The one that will be completely normal with no Judgement Day?

The future before Kyle Reese went back in time to change anything.

Not the future of T3 that says he might as well have walked off a bridge as his going to the past didn't matter one iota.
