THQ cancels inSANE, returns rights to Guillermo del Toro

THQ cancels inSANE, returns rights to Guillermo del Toro photo



Guillermo del Toro's association had me curious about inSANE, but it's not exactly like we had much to go on about the game in the first place. Sadly, we may never. Speaking to investors, THQ CEO Jason Rubin disclosed that they "have decided not to pursue further pre-production on inSANE, and have returned all of our IP rights to Guillermo del Toro."

Truth be told, when a project like this is announced as the beginning of a trilogy, it's hard not to become at least slightly concerned; all of the chatter about transmedia initiatives certainly didn't help ease my mind, either. Joystiq reached out to THQ and was told "no teams/staff are affected by this decision."

Of course, it's still possible that del Toro could do something with the IP rights of inSANE. Perhaps another publisher will step in, though I won't be holding my breath. Games of this nature tend to cost a lot of money, and we all know that new IPs can be an especially risky prospect.

Telltale's first original series is a TV show and videogame crossover

Telltale Games has a propensity for surprising when it comes to revealing new projects. The news that it was creating a story-based Minecraft was so far out of left field, that it prompted us to wonder aloud what the nex...more

Hitman: Agent 47 looks anything but stealthy

The tone of this trailer for Hitman: Agent 47 matches my playstyle for the game series, which is to go in quietly only to screw up repeatedly and end up having to trade bullets with everyone. While I could have done without ...more

Rob Riggle plays a decent Frank West, but Dead Rising: Watchtower looks bad

We were promised a direct-to-internet Dead Rising movie, and that's exactly what we're getting. Even with my expectations set accordingly, I'm coming off this trailer for Dead Rising: Watchtower feeling disappointed. Rob Rig...more
