THQ cancels Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Insane’

THQ has announced that Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Insane’ is no longer in production and effectively canceled. This happened in an investor call just a short time ago.

THQ president Jason Rubin has said in a statement, “”We have decided not to pursue further pre-production on Insane, and have returned all of our IP rights to Guillermo del Toro.”

No word on how far in production inSane actually went, but THQ has been on a mission lately to cancel unfruitful projects, and realign other services, in order to make the company more profitable.

In light of this Rubin also stated, “Consistent with this vision, THQ has made a few changes to previously announced projects. First, we made the determination not to pursue any casual Facebook games. Second, we will not be publishing casual mobile games, including those with Innovative Leisure. And third, we have decided not to pursue further pre-production on Insane, and have returned all of our IP rights to Guillermo del Toro. By canceling these explorations outside of our core business, we feel we can improve focus on our core game portfolio, which remains unchanged.”

This goes in line with statements THQ has made recently regarding the new “focused” direction of the company.
