Rights returned to del Toro.

THQ has announced during its fiscal 2013 first quarter financials call today that it has cancelled production on Guillermo del Toro’s inSANE, which was in development at Saints Row developer Volition. Rights to the title have been returned to del Toro.

The game, initially set to be the start of a trilogy, was to “redefine storytelling in gaming,” whilst delivering “an unprecedented cinematic experience.”

  • Awww come on, we didn’t even get to see any gameplay.  Ever since I played the highly underrated Saints Row 2, I’ve been keeping a strict eye on Volition and awaiting their next project.  Eventhough SR3 seems like a step forward in flash and a step back in substance, the team seems like they have a lot of potential. 

    Disappointing news Sal.

    Didnt they JUST say less than 3 months ago, that it was still in production?  This is why I hate listening to publishers, as they hardly ever tell the truth, its only when its convenient to them :(

    • I recall reading something like that as well. It probably has a lot to do with the rebuilding process THQ is currently going through. Regardless, I’m very sad to see it get cancelled.

      Sad news.

  • I think it will still come out. Just THQ does not have the money for a new IP. A different publisher just needs to pick up the rights. 
    Once metro: last light and the south park rpg bomb, THQ is done.

    Didn’t know about this game till I saw the teaser on YouTube. They’ll probably release it next gen.

    They propably bit more off than they could chew.
    I was kinda looking forward to this.

    Aw, nuts. Was looking forward to this. I’m a fan of Del Toro’s creativity.

    Guillermo del Toro can’t have his HP Lovecraft movie (‘At the Moutains of Madness’) and now he can’t have this. Jeez. Somebody cut the guy some slack.

  • Well, EA can buy it
