THQ Cancels Guillermo del Toro’s Insane
THQ’s announcement of their upcoming trilogy, Insane, at the 2010 VGA awards left many gamers “scared” with anticipation. With the brilliant mind of the famous director Guillermo del Toro supervising the project there was little doubt this trilogy was something to look forward to by gamers of the horror and non-horror genre.
Over the past two years, THQ representatives confirmed the project was still in early production. This week THQ’s president, Jason Rubin, said that THQ will be focus on newer intellectual properties that will bring profitable returns to THQ. No titles have been named or confirmed. It is speculated that these titles might be planned for the next generation of consoles.
It’s apparent that THQ is taking the low road by not investing in any high risk titles.
Guillermo Del Toro still holds the rights to Insane and is free to take the project to any other publisher. Lets hope del Toro’s horror title will eventually make it to our home consoles and not fade away.
