“We have decided not to pursue further pre-production on InSANE, and have returned all of our IP rights to Guillermo del Toro,” said THQ president Jason Rubin last night during a call to investors.
“By cancelling these explorations outside of our core business, we feel we can improve focus on our core game portfolio, which remains unchanged.”
InSANE was announced by the popular film director/producer in later 2010 when a teaser video was shown at the Spike Video Game Awards.
This comes shortly after the news that THQ had pulled support on Devil’d Third, an action game in development with Tomonubu Itagaki’s Valhalla Game Studios.
It’s not all cancellations at THQ though.
The publisher revealed that four of its internal studios began working on new titles in the last 60 days.
