THQ announced during an investor’s call that they pulled the plug on inSANE, a horror game series from Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro.
inSANE was revealed during the 2010 Spike Video Game Awards and later announced to be a trilogy of games. The project was handed to Saints Row developer Volition, but since the project was canceled rights to inSANE were handed back to del Toro. This is similar to what happened with Devil’s Third, which was given back to Valhalla Game Studios after THQ dropped the title.
THQ says they are focusing on their core portfolio, which includes Darksiders 2, Metro: Last Light and South Park: The Stick of Truth.
