THQ has cancelled work on horror game Insane and given all rights back to film director Guillermo del Toro.
Guillermo del Toro has confirmed that he is working on a project with THQ.
"We're working together," said the director. "Hopefully everything will come together in the next few days and we can formally announce it and so forth. But we are talking about huge games, huge world creation and long deadlines."
Fans of del Toro's work may be excited by the prospect of a video game helmed by the director, but it'll be a while before the project sees store shelves:
"With THQ we're looking at around a three year developing deadline for each game. Big games. More details forthcoming, but we are truly exploring them in a serious manner. Expect the first game, best case scenario, 2013."
He was willing to give a brief description of what we can expect. "It's horror...but it's a very different type of horror game. It's not survival horror. It's truly a strange, geeky mix. It's a Lovecraftian thing. Let's leave it at that."
He knows a lot about creating an intriguing world. I'm interested in what kind of game comes out of this.
2013 sounds good to me as long as they make it good. And to be honest, I don't trust that much THQ, it's been a long time since I've played a good game from them.
was very excited for this but when i saw 2013 i was like why the hell even announce it now? i hate when game companies do that. i know its for stock prices and investors, but damn, thats a slap in the face for gamers.
