THQ Secures Rights To 50 Cent: Blood On The Sand

After the Activision/Vivendi merger, several titles were left without a publishing home, including games like Ghostbusters: The Videogame and the Swordfish Studios-developed 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. We're still trying to confirm that the former was picked up by Atari, but we do have confirmation that THQ has attained the rights to the latter.

According to GameSpot, THQ will publish the rapper's adventure in which he takes on a Middle Eastern crime cartel. The publisher behind Saints Row 2 didn't come clean when Blood on the Sand popped up on the Australian Classification Board with THQ's name attached to it. But now, it's a fact, and the title will release for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 some time early next year. If you're wondering what to expect, think of a run-and-gun style of gameplay along with an engaging online cooperative mode. Swordfish used the popular Unreal Engine 3 to create the game, and for 50 Cent fans, it might turn out to be a worthy purchase. If it was scheduled to release this year, we wouldn't give it much chance at all - the lineup for the rest of 2008 is pretty damn robust - but perhaps early next year, it'll make some waves. Typically, celebrity-based games are downright awful, but maybe something like Shaun White Snowboarding will set a decent quality trend.

We'll try to keep you apprised of the games that got left out in the cold after the aforementioned merger; the most important of which in our opinion is Tim Schafer's Brutal Legend. Stay tuned.

similar concept. Ghana has a unique talent, and one that he wishes to share with the world.

so, get over it ^_^

don't like 50 as a rapper, but I am a big fan of Bulletproof (his 1st game), so for sure I'll keep a close eye on this game.

Hmm, okeeei...

I have to say...

I hated Bulletproof - it was the worst game I had on the PS2...

But that's life - our taste isn't the same.

Are there still 50 cent fans around? Guy's claim to fame is being shot a lot. To paraphrase Katt Williams: "I been shot, it ain't cool. Bitches don't run out and throw confetti atcha."

For sure... glad to see I have a fellow gamer who also is a Nas fan.

From "Illmatic" to "Untitled" I listen to it all.
