THQ Drops Del Toro's inSANE

By Mark Delaney, 5 years ago
Survival-horrors fans have taken another blow to their bloody torsos today, as new THQ President Jason Rubin has today announced during an investor's conference that the publisher has decided to drop their title, inSANE. News on the game had gone darker than a corridor in the genre since its announcement in 2010, though THQ confirmed they were still committed to the title earlier this year when it appeared on their release calendar.

Rubin, who recently took over the job as President after a very successful stint at Naughty Dog, has been busy realigning THQ's priorities, stating multiple times that he'd like to see the company make fewer games but of a high quality, rather than pump out many titles that may be mediocre. It seems inSANE is a casualty of this new business strategy.

Don't lose your minds yet though, horror fans. The game's creator and famed filmmaker, Guillermo Del Toro, owns the rights to the game, so if he wants to, he could take it to another company and pick it right back up. We won't keep you in the dark if more news regarding this situation arises, but for now, inSANE is out.
