During their investor call this week, THQ announced that the South Park RPG was getting delayed, and that the company may no longer be publishing Tomonobu Itagaki’s Devil’s Third. For those worried about another of their upcoming titles—inSane—a THQ rep’s statement may put your mind at easy.
Danny Bilson—THQ’s Executive VP of Core Games—took to Twitter to deliver the message:
“Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘inSane’ is not cancelled!”
inSane—a project that sees the filmmaker teaming up with THQ and Volition—is said to be a “Lovecraftian horror adventure” with a “pulp narrative and creatures with tentacles”.
In an interview with MTV last summer, Del Toro stated that the game had “two or three more years to go”, which no doubt explains why we haven’t seen much of it yet. As the project could certainly end up being an interesting one, it’s good to hear that it hasn’t suffered a tragic fate.
