Guillermo del Toro's Game Has Been Canceled

GODFUCKINGDAMMIT!!!!

I was really looking forward to this one.
I guess another company is going to have to adopt it and finish it.

Getting halfway into development and cancelling the project doesn't seem like a good way to make money.

Someone really needs to explain the concept of 'sunk costs' to THQ. It would cost them way less to simply take these projects to completion at this point than it would to start something else from scratch.

Can someone PLEASE give Guillermo a break? First the Dark Corners of the Earth or Cthulu or whatever movie he was making falls through now this?

I guess that's really it for THQ then. Damn shame, and a game with Del Toro's aesthetic would have been magic.

They regret it when it succeds. Kickstarter now.

So... apart from Saints Row, and maybe Darksiders, what exactly does THQ have going for it again?

While I don't question del Toro's vision as an artist (even though it's all a bit surreal to me) it's not necessarily good material for a game; the plug gets pulled on business deals all the time, may be for the better for now at least

Those two, Company of Heroes courtesy of Relic, South Park and the Stick of Truth, and if all goes well Crytek's Homefront sequel.

I was glad when they announced Insane was was put on hold and dropped the rights to it. They need to focus on games that will sell well, and not be taking risks when they're on the verge of going under.
