THQ has had it rough in the past several months. With their financial situation looking pretty grim; they’ve set their sights on a strategy of focusing on less software but with bigger sales potential. Let’s face it, the gaming industry is a ‘hit maker’ driven enterprise where only the big fish get to eat and the guppies get swallowed. With yesterdays news that Itagaki’s Devil’s Third may not make the cut for THQ, many wondered where this left Volition and film auteur Guillermo del Toro’s Lovecraftian themed horror title InSane.
It seems that development on the title is still ongoing and has not been canceled. If THQ plays their cards right I can see the title being a big success for the company similar to Saints Row 3. Volition is a fantastic developer and with the right amount of time and influence by a creative like del Toro, InSane could be the horror title to bring true nerve rattling horror back into gaming. Hopefully we’ll hear more of the title later this year.
