Until we implement this feature, the work around would be to monitor the deployment using the API and cancel it if a timeout has been reached.
I have written up a script (https://octopus.com/blog/automating-octopus-with-azure-functions) that retrieves all running deployments for a project and cancels it if:
- it has been running for more that 30 minutes
- the first step has been running fro more than 20 minutes
- the first step has not output any logs in 5 minutes
This can run as a scheduled task. Alternatively you can use the subscriptions feature to kick off a piece of code (eg Azure function) that does this polling, as described in this blog post: https://octopus.com/blog/automating-octopus-with-azure-functions

I agree with Chris Gelhaus, we are faced with the same issue as his org.
