THQ To Reveal Next Red Faction "Later This Month"
We know the new Red Faction will be here sooner than expected, and we know THQ and SyFy have teamed up to deliver a TV movie based on the series.
But what we didn't realize was that THQ is ready to show off the new title before the month is over. According to Joystiq, the publisher enjoyed a positive earnings report where CEO Brian Farrell commented on the relative success of last year's Red Faction: Guerrilla. While he said he'd give his company a "B" grade for the game, he added, "I think we did a great job on the game, I think we did an average job on demand creation." But they're addressing that lacking with the latest RF project and Farrell said we'll see the changes "in the way we unveil it later this month." Furthermore - and you lovers of solid storylines should appreciate this - THQ's Danny Bilson said the next Red Faction would be "more narrative;" Farrell follows this up by saying that the story was "one of the weaker points" of Guerrilla. As good as that game was, we won't disagree. The open-ended world was great for exploring and general freedom, but we did sort of lose contact with the main plot awfully quickly. We don't need an RPG but engaging stories and great characters are appreciated in most all genres.
Anyway, we can't wait to learn more about the game and it seems the time is fast approaching for an unveiling. We'll let you know when THQ reveals what we want to see...
