THQ Forced To Cancel Del Toro's Insane
At last check, the game was still in development, even if the first entry (this was supposed to be a trilogy) was a long ways off.
But unfortunately, THQ announced during an investor call that they've canceled Guillermo del Toro's horror game, Insane, and have given him back all the rights to the anticipated project.
Insane was initially announced back in 2010 and del Toro had apparently teamed up with Saints Row developer Volition. But things had been awfully quiet on the update front since that announcement, so maybe it's no big shock to see the project die off. THQ was also forced to cancel another promising game earlier this year, Tomonobu Itagaki's Devil's Third.
THQ has had to make some tough decisions in order to right the ship. Maybe this month's Darksiders II can go a long way towards achieving that feat... Still, we're disappointed that we won't get to see del Toro's vision. Perhaps another publisher wants to sign on for the long haul.
